Cross Cards

I have been playing with my pain patches again. I ddded alcohol inks, then embossed them. 
(Cuttlebug  Musical Flourish and Tiffany in picture above) Then I went over the raised areas by rubbing a black pigment ink pad directly over the embossed portions. When I wipe the black ink off with a baby wipe, the black ink takes the alcohol ink underneath it away. The silver foil shines through and creates a really cool effect.

I also made a new cross cut file. I got the inspiration from a tattoo style cross. It is hard to see all the detail in the silver foil paper. Here is a picture of the cross.
You can download it here.

Here are a few more cards I made.

The panel on the left side is what the foil paper looks like when it has been inked and embossed. I used a Sizzix TH Texture Fade there. It gives a wonderful deep impression.

I used the same Texture Fade folder on the background here. I embossed the blue card stock then wiped the top with a silver chalk ink. I edged the embossed panel with a cool new Prismacolor Metallic Silver  pen. It covered the area perfectly even though it was uneven from the embossing. 
I used a Cuttlebug folder. Grace's Frame, around the sentiment.

I think I have given the sentiment out before, but here it is again if anyone wants it. You can right click it and save it to your computer then open it in a picture editing program.

I saw one of your projects on Pinterest, so I wanted to check out more of your gorgeous creations. I adore all of your projects and tutorials. I really love this cross...wish I had a cutting program! For now, I'll try to hand cut it.

With all of the dimension you use in your projects, I was wondering if you have ever tried any Holly Berry House medallion stamps? I'm addicted to them because of the layers and different ways to embellish them. I've also played with a lot of Outlines rubber stamps. I adore how you use your design paper so often as embellishments...gorgeous!

I wanted you to know that you are not alone in your pain. I suffered with lots of pain issues due to my Crohn's Disease and degenerative disc disease for decades, and I finally had a Medtronic Pain Pump surgically implanted to control mine. Now I am finally able to function again. I'm not sure of all of your medical issues, but it may be worth looking into. I will also put you on our prayer list. If you want more info from me, contact me @ grandma_lee_t AT yahoo DOT com
