Happy Thursday, all! It's been quite a day! Had a great card class tonight.
I had some time this afternoon to try out a new technique I found at the Stamp Pad. June has loads of ideas in her emails. Her shop is located in Zoar, Ohio. A group of us took a day trip up there a few months ago. Beautiful area!
I pulled out my Stampscape stamps today. On this card I used the Lake and the Swimming Ducks stamps. Also, the cumulus clouds. All the stamps were stamped with Versamark on SU Chocolate Chip cardstock. Then I heat embossed the whole image with clear embossing powder. Then I took Beige Brilliance Ink and rubbed it over the whole front of the card, then took a tissue and removed the ink from the embossing. June used White ink to highlight her designs. I took it a step further and pulled out my Twinkling H2o's and barely colored the trees, clouds and the water with the beautiful irridescent colors! Makes for a very interesting card! The card below was done with the Crooked path, Cabin, couple, Deer, Horse, fence, clouds and Oak Branch stamps. Technique is the same, just used SU Night of Navy cardstock and Brilliance Sky Blue Ink after I heat embossed the design. Absolutely wonderful technique! Til tomorrow....
