Need some help unwinding? Tara is our hostess this week at The Friday Mashup and she has a great challenge for us. She wants to see projects with a spring theme, and she'd also like us to try the scattered embossing technique.
I decided to use this great stamp, Vivid Vases. I just love everything about this stamp! The colors are pulled from the Gingham Garden DSP.
For the embossing I took the Square Lattice EF and put my card base in there. I then used the stylus from the scoring board to highlight the spots where I wanted embossing on my card. In the video that Tara provided the gal uses vellum for the technique but I wasn't keen on that, so hopefully I got the technique right by doing it the way I did. Either way its something I haven't tried before, so I can knock it off the list!
I hope you'll head over to The Friday Mashup to see what the rest of the DT did, these ladies blow me away every week!
