Just Because ~ PTI Challenge

So my FAV new stamp producer(PTI) is having posing some challenges to celebrate their 3rd anniversary. Today's challenge was to tackle emboss resist. 

I was feeling a little playful after a long day at work, so on the way home I was thinking of some great ideas. 

Here's what I came up with.

Along with emboss resist I used masking to do this card as well. I stamped the images onto post-it notes so i could place them on top to stamp over, but also great so I could play around with where I wanted the images. In the end I ended up rotating the card 90degrees anyways. 
I stamped the one flower and coloured it with my new Copic Markers ( LOVE them). Then used my VersaMark marker to colour over the whole flower, and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I put one of my postits over it, to stamp the other flowers, to make it look like they're behind the other flower. Then, I covered those, and stamped the leaves. Then embossed them all with clear embossing powder. I kept the posits on the flowers and used my sponge to ink green around the leaves. Then put the posit of the leaves over them and inked 2 tones of purple over it. Stamped the sentiment - in two parts , embossed it in clear. and I was all set. Added some ribbon and glued everything down. 

I hope you enjoy it -- post a comment and your address and maybe you'll get it in the mail.

I'm back!! Finally!!

So I'm finally back - at least for a bit. I'm trying to find a better balance between work and life and scrapping. 

A few dear friends of mine finally convinced me that I needed to get some Copics and start experimenting, so here's a sneak at my colouring. and a card that I made for my amazing husband as a thank you for a great date night this weekend. 

This card also applies for the little red wagon blog challenge for this week.

Hopefully I can get some more creations up here soon.
