Been for a little walk this morning and enjoyed seeing some blue sky for a change - it's not going to last but nice to see all the same!
Have a share for today which started off as an idea after seeing something similar done for Christmas Cards - so out with the embossing powders and some vellum and am happy to see it turned out OK and just like I imagined it would in my head.
I used gold and silver embossing powders.
The flourish stamp was a freebie and it stamps beautifully.
The dandelion head stamp I have had for a long time and I love it.
I embossed first in gold, adding a few lines with an embossing pen along the stem.
The dotted the embossing pen over the seed heads and embossed again in silver.
It's really effective in real life and I am chuffed that I finally managed to create something that was how I imagined!
A few sparkly gems and one of my all time fave sentiments to finish it all off.
3 stamps and some embossing powder - simple!
I don't use vellum very much mainly because I always have trouble fixing it to base card - all glues seem to show through so with this one I just dabbed a little Collal glue behind some parts of the embossed bits (like where the stem joined the flower head) and thankfully it worked!
