The blues

I have been wanting to try this technique and I think that I picked the perfect set to work with; not to mention the colors are popping as my youngest would say. I used Buckaroo Blue/vanilla to matte and sky as the base, I stamped the image with versamark and then embossed it with clear embossing. I then took white craft ink and used a dauber to go over the areas that I had embossed and this is the effect that I got. What do you think? I am loving it and... shhh, don't tell- it took me only minutes to make these cards. You could whip up a few of these in no time especially if you did all the cutting up front. Perfect WOW card for a workshop for sure! I know, short post but whatcha gonna do, I am just trying to catch up on projects.

ps: Oh winner of my little "help me out" contest is won by Chris A and here is the outcome: send me your addy and I will send you the card!

This is AMAZING, what a great technique! It certainly looks as though you took hours doing it. I'll be trying this too...although you can't get those lovely daisy stamps in the UK.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Heidi-

LOL. Seriously, my walls are so bare! hahahahaha. I've been living there for 6 months now and it still looks like I just moved in. I hear there's an IKEA opening up near me so hopefully the next time you see my place it will be wonderfully deocor-ed.
