One of my favourite ways of adding texture and interest to cards, and other projects is with Embossing Folders. I think I am addicted to them!
This week’s Just Add Ink challenge is to add some texture to a project, so I did! 🙂
This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest recently (it didn’t have a name on it, so unfortunately I can’t give the person credit for their idea), and since I am also currently addicted to my Blendabilities, I thought I should combine the two.
The background was embossed with the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder, and the butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set were masked, stamped in Black Memento Ink and then coloured with the Blendabilities.
I am also going to enter this one into the SUO Challenges, where the current challenge is to use Markers or Blendabilities 🙂
This week’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches is my inspiration for today’s card, and the colour combination inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest recently.
The colours are Crumb Cake, Crisp Cantaloupe (such a gorgeous colour!) and Whisper White, and I have used the gorgeous Wetlands stamp set again, loving this set at present 🙂 I have also run the long banner through the Big Shot with the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder.
Happy Stamping! Chris
UPDATE: I am feeling very blessed to have been chosen by Linda Callahan as her “winner” this week. Thank you Linda. I had so much fun making this card, it is always an honour to know that others like my work too.
