I received some new goodies from Kim the other day and OF course I had to play a little this weekend. This is what I made.
Matelassé embossing folder. (I love this one, and Kim can and will order if for you, just ask her. You can contact Kim through the store site here.)
I adhered all my layers together with my ATG gun. After I adhere the embossed yellow mat, I added a piece of Washi Tape to the base as a border. (OK, I admit, this is my free gift from Kim at the end of the club, but she can likely order this too.)
Next I stamped a small piece of card stock cut to 2" X 2" with my flower image with some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored my flower image with some chalk. I then went back and using a blue water colored pencil to add a bit of shading. I blended everything together with my Dove blending pen. I matted my image on another piece of green card stock cut to 2 1/4" 2 1/4" and adhered it to my card front with some Kool Tak clear foam squares.
Finally I added my sentiment using some VersaMark embossing ink and the new Saraha WOW! Embossing Powder I just received from Kim. The new Desert Sand Limited Edition set. LOVE IT!!! So sparkly. Okay, so now confession time, I really had bad luck and did not enjoy using embossing powders on my projects until Kim started selling the WOW! embossing powders. The others I tried to use just didn't melt and give me the results I expected. The WOW! embossing powders melt beautifully. If you haven't tried them yet, you should, you won't regret it.
I would love to know what you think of my project and this embossing folder. I think it is beautiful and am so excited that I now own it.
