Hello my crafty friends. Well I have been busy moving and have not had an internet connection for several days. I never realized I was so addicted to getting online! I have missed my blog and Reader so much.
Well that is the negative side of the move, but the positive side is that I have a HUGE new craft room! I will post pictures when I have it all set up. (and after I get all the other boxes that are stashed in it right now) LOL
Here is a card that I made before the move.
Isn't it pretty? I really like it. I even stamped on it. (that is big for me...LOL)
I made my own embossed resist background. I used a Tim Holtz Damask stamp that the surrounding area instead of the damask pattern (ie the part that is white on the card.)
It was stamped using Versa Mark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
Then I inked the background with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. That made the areas that were not embossed turn pink.
I added an oval frame and open rose which I left white and just inked the edges with the Picked Raspberry.
Love that effect on the rose!
Then of course I had to add some bling to finish it off.
Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing this card as much as I enjoyed making it. :)
I will keep you informed of my new craft room. I have BIG plans for crafting in this new space. LOL
