Good Evening Everyone! Well. . . I actually sat down and made two cards this evening. I really wish I could have more time to stamp but as much as I thought I would have more time when the kids return to school, well. . .it really isn't happening that way. BUT. . .I did find time this evening. I feel really tired today and I think I'm ready to go to bed.
You can't really tell but the image and the whole focal point were heat embossed with clear embossing powder. In person it looks "shiny" looking. I stamped the image with pigment ink and sponged the area around the image with various colored pigment inks then applied the clear embossing powder and heat embossed it. I haven't heat embossed my images for such a long time. I guess it's due to time constraints more than anything else. It's an added step but in my opinion, well worth it.
