Happy teeny, tiny Tuesday everyone!
Sorry it has been so long since I last posted. Life has been super busy since the wedding fayre .. .. but all good and exciting.
I had a bit of a creative thought as I was nodding off last night (sad I know) and decided I would try it out to see how it looks. Well I was happy with the results and decided it would work well on one of my teeny tiny 3.5" square creations. So here we go:
Image: Kaisercraft Botanica Clear Stamps
Sentiment: Stampin' Up! Banner Banter stamp set and punch
Backing Paper: Not sure.. .. just a leftover that has been lurking around for far too long!!
Embossing Powder: Silver, Platinum, Gold and Copper
Ribbon and Button from my crafty stash box
We R Memory Keepers Evelope Punch Board for the matching envelope
Quite pleased that a little "try out" ended up as being something I can actually post on my blog .. .. .. and because I have used up just a few tiny snippets of card and ribbon I will take a quick dash and share it with the playmates over in Pixies Snippets Playground
The technique simply involved stamping the image in VersaMark Ink .. adding a stripe of silver embossing powder, tipping the excess powder off, adding a stripe platinum and repeating the tipping off and adding another colour until I had added four. Then I heat embossed it. I think the bottom picture shows it off best.
Definitely one to try again when I have a little more time to play properly.
But for now it is back to the ever growing "crafty must do" list!!
Enjoy your day .. .. and your pancakes if you are indulging.
