Embossed Thank You

I’m bringing the heat today with a technique that I’m guilty of neglecting! I love the effect, so I really should use it more often!

I heat embossed the background with ash rose versacolor ink (dries slower so emboss powder clings), and did the same for the die cut butterfly.   I tied some embroidery thread in a similar ash rose color around the soft pink wrinkled seam binding. The seam binding is tied in a double bow, for a loopy look.   Added some pink pearls and voila!

Stamps: Flourishes Taglines thank you, Cornish Heritage Farms Beautiful,

Paper: Bo Bunny gabrielle collection, vanilla cs,

Ink: ash rose versa color, pumice stone distress ink,

Accessories: clear emboss powder, heat tool,  wrinkled seam binding, cricut, Give a Hoot Cartridge, Graphically Speaking

A few fabulous challenges I am entering my card in:

Clearly Inspired Stamp challenge: Things with wings

Joyful Stamper: Inspire me Fridays anything goes

DYSU Challenge Blog: Emboss it!

Thanks for your sweet comments on my first digital image drawing (Best in Sew Digital Images).    I have a few more to share, so I will hopefully get them up before too long.  I appreciate your feedback!   I am so happy to be drawing again!  Funny how life goes.  My Mom was encouraging me not long ago to start painting/drawing again, and I really didn’t think I had the time or energy for it…excuses and lack of confidenceI guess.   I was looking at it the wrong way.  I realized how I could incorporate more than one passion into  my hobby…by actually using my own drawing on my cards…I guess I just needed a little push in the right direction.  THANKS MOM!!

Have a great and creative day everyone!!  So happy you took the time to stop by and say hello!
