Happy weekend, people!
In fact, I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking at in this pin–besides a couch, table and a couple chairs!
Do YOU have any guesses what that big gold thing is?
All I know is for some reason, it inspired me.
I'm going with Gold!, Midnight Muse, Not Quite Navy, Basic Black and Basic Gray.
My first instinct was to make an elegant Christmas card. But that seemed too "expected"–especially with all my Christmas Stamp Camp prep lately.
(It's tomorrow, by the way!!! So excited!!!)
But I did a cool technique with flowers–Pleasant Poppies–instead.
It's called embossing resist–pretty easy, but I often forget about it.
You start by heat embossing the image–VersaMark and clear embossing powder–on a light colored background.
(I used the First Edition DSP for a little added interest.)
Then you sponge a darker color over the image. When you are finished with that, wipe off the embossed image with kleenex to brighten it.
For my sponging, I used Not Quite Navy and then Midnight Muse more around the edges.
Basic Gray cs is behind the sponged layer, and Black is below the [Champagne] Glimmer Paper.
The words are from Thoughts & Prayers in White Craft Ink.
Give the technique a try and let me know how it turns out and what colors you used–or better yet…Pin it to my Be My PIN Guest Board.
Show off your work!
