I stamped the Dogwood down the side of the kraft card in Desert Sand Memento Ink and then highlighted with white pencil. The sentiment was also stamped in the same ink, but it seems to disappear into the card.
As I have never seen Dogwood before and didn't know what colour it should be, I took some ''artistic license" and did a couple of cards where I coloured it in.... one blues and one reds.
As I spend most of the day at stamp club day, I also managed to get some more cards made.... the first one here is a technique I found on the net somewhere ( can't find the original post now) - first you emboss your card and then cover it with acrylic paint. Once it is dry you sand the piece and then cover it with brown ink. I got a new embossing folder yesterday called Jules Jewells so I thought I'd have a go. The original had used pink paint and brown ink for a vintage look, but I used purple paint and then rubbed over d Dark plum ink. I did have a bit of a giggle as after lunch our demo of the day was about using Whitewash card and Choc box card to do what I did manually.... emboss and sand to show the different colours. Here is my card
And finally a card I made for our friend's 60th birthday.
Thanks for persevering with this long post.. but it was a pretty full on day yesterday. Hope your week is good.... my final with my team.... off to lunch on Thursday and have booked myself a mini facial for Friday afternoon... so a good week planned. Take care
