Some pretty eye candy here for you before I get into a requested tutorial. I completed this card for Stamp TVs color challenge LAST WEEK, then forgot to post it!! Oh my! This is fairly straightforward, so here's the deets: I embossed the base (Gina K 80 lb) with a Cuttlebug Folder, then cut and embossed the frames (again Gina K 80 lb) with Nestabilities. I stamped Theresa's poinsettia from A Year in Flowers in StazOn on SU! glossy paper.
I colored this image about 10 times (no joke) alternating between my SU! real red marker and Memento lady bug dew drop ink. Between colorings, I would spritz it until the color puddled and let it air dry, then go over it with another coat. This seems pointless, but it really gives a unique depth of color that you can't get with just one coat alone. The sentiment is from Theresa's set, punched with SU! word window. I colored the Gina K Designs Bling and Dazzle Sateen embossed white flowers with a Memento red dew drop, added Hero Arts pearls, popped up on dimensionals over a little SU! patterned paper.
My next post will include that fabby truck Malcolm, and how I use the relatively recent product Smooch by Clearsnap. Check back later on Tuesday!
