Put on your dancing shoes and


Celebrate!

A CAS card using the lovely My Sentiments Exactly shoe stamp twice, inked with versamark and heat embhossed with silver sparkle glitter embossing powder. I just fancies making something a bit different and I love this stamp and don't often get to use it.

The wording was generated on computer and printed (after a few trial attempts on paper).

This is for Less in more 130 where this Pinterest picture was shared:


Unfortunately, the glittered embossing doesn't show up too well - get a bit better idea from this close up:

The sweet pea stampers challenge: embossing


Today's new challenge on The Sweet Pea Stampers is 'embossing - wet or dry or both'. The challenge is hosted by Team A, but Team B are invited to join in if they wish, so I've made this card. I stamped ching-chou kuik's fantasy art collection 'flowing in blue' with versafine onyx black and heat embossed with detail black powder. I coloured with promarkers.The embossed matt silver panel on the left was created with an embossalicious folder 'floral vine' using my eBosser. I coloured the image with spectrum noirs, choosing to use pinks, lilacs and greens rather than blues. The panel behind the image is a foiled piece of Hunkydory card with ribbons and gems from Hobbycraft. The flowers are Papermania and prima and the acetate friends circle is one that I've had for ages, as is the sentiment 'to a special friend'.

The colour scheme is fine for LiaStampz 46:
