Over the holidays, hubs and I visit his family and from there we drive back to our east coast abode. It is my only chance to actually step foot inside an ARCHIVER'S, they don't have them in my west or east coast area, so while I don't like being in the vehicle for 8 hours...that shopping perk is definitely worth it. Hubs doesn't grumble about having to get up earlier to make up time for the stop! (He even went to the register for me with an item and coupon so that I could use 2 of the coupons I had - Yea Hubs!)
I love the background stamps, and have been looking at the Hero Arts - Studio Calico Houndstooth for a while. I picked it up.
I stamped it on white with distress ink, heat embossed it in clear, then die cut some flower layers. The middle layer I inked up with more of the distress ink to give the flower depth.
In my stash of embossing folders that I hauled cross country with me, I found...guess what...you betcha...more houndstooth.
I embossed a panel, put my flower on it, added some died seam binding, and had to stick in a bit of wood veneer(also courtesy of the Archiver's stop).
Thanks for stopping by.
