Isn't amazing how BUSY spring becomes? Every mom I know right now is walking around in a haze trying to keep everything straight - sports, standardized testing, spring concerts...and I guess I'm no exception. The blog has taken a back seat to everything else lately, so thanks for bearing with me.
Today's project was built around the Technique Tag we did at Angela's Happy Stamper. It features Lockhart Stamp Company's English Garden Flowers. All of the coloring was done with Twinkling H2O's for a really beautiful look. A few of you who come in on Tuesdays have asked me to give you some ideas for incorporating the tags into cards, so I will start doing that! In case you weren't able to come in yesterday (ie, your ARK wasn't at the ready - what rain!) here's a quick overview:
If you look closely here, you can see that I embossed this beautiful image. But I also used Versafine Black for it - and that's a great little tip. Versafine is not generally regarded to be an embossable ink, but if you have your powder at the ready, it will emboss beautifully while not losing any of that incredible detail. I *love* using this tip when using Twinkling H2O's because the embossing creates little that encourage the watercolors to stay put. Ahhh, control over the uncontrollable! ;) (And for those that know me in person, you know just how giddy that makes me!)
I hope this shows you a couple of great little tips today! Be well.
