I love technique challenges - it makes me a better card maker to be challenged to try something new. This week our challenge at Tiddly Inks is to use a technique of stitching, distressing or embossing. Now I emboss all the time, but this time around I wanted to take it to a new level...
Each colored layer is embossed with a different embossing folder...but I also added ink to the folder before I ran it through my Wizard... This gives it a faux letter press effect that I just love. Sometimes the raised portion is very white and other times it comes out more muted, but either way it comes out pretty darn coolio.
I inked up this adorable image called Sugar Plum Fairy and then just started layering. The frame came from a Paper Studio embossing folder and the rest are all Provo Craft ones. I found these great little clear flat-sided acrylic pebbles that I spread all over the place, held down with a purple stickles for color. A bright purple bow and a simple sentiment completes the card.
Come join the fun at Tiddly Inks - you could win some great images!
