I made this card for Keesh's colour challenge and it has been ages since I've joined in. The challenge at Just Add Ink #26 is to do some embossing so I've combined the two. This week is my 'off' week as a DT Member for JAI so I thought I'd play along for fun.
It took my mind off just how lousy I'm feeling but I'm not looking forward to cleaning up my craft area!! I've been MIA due to a nasty 'lung infection' and our main computer needed fixing.
This card was also made for a good friend of mine who is going through a tough time at the moment. I hope she likes it when it arrives in the mail. She loves embossing on cards!!! Hi, T.
I used the emerging colour/emboss resist technique by stamping the flowers from 'Vintage Vogue' in So Saffron and Regal Rose, then stamping the Baroque Background stamp with Versa Mark and embossing with clear embossing powder. Lastly, I brayered Chocolate Chip ink over the top and buffed off the extra ink on the embossed bits with a tissue.
I love using bold images to do this technique - one of my faves!
Here's the Project Recipe for Vintage Baroque
Stamp Sets: Vintage Vogue, Baroque, Pocket Silhouettes, Tiny Tags
Ink: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Regal Rose, Versa Mark
