Tonight I sat down to make a card for two challenges and the final ended up working for three!
I stamped and heat embossed the Lily from Concord and Ninth, then colored it with inktense pencils. After it dried, I was totally not pleased.
It just was too chalky feeling and looking. Instead of tossing it I was determined to make it work.
Using a square stitched die I made a smaller focal piece. Next I clear embossed the entire piece 3 times with clear embossing powder.
I framed it in a touch of black...I have to credit that to Ardyth (of MASKerade), I had commented earlier today on her blog that I loved her black touches and how they elevated images, adding to the crisp feeling.
This will be entered to these challenges: HLS July Anything goes with Dies, Where Creativity meets C9 - Embossing, The Flower Challenge- Embossing Heat/Dry.
Thanks for stopping by!
