Embossed shadows

Hello! I hope you all have had a lovely weekend. I've certainly enjoyed mine! Not much crafting happened, but the kids enjoyed the time spent with them.

Over at Inkspirations 4U we were given this "inkspiration" challenge. These are not normally colours I would go for. But I chose to use them out of this challenge. I even incorporated the red from the telephone in.

We were also given a sketch challenge too, as you can see below. It's kind of easy, so I thought I'd combine the two. It's amazing how much you feel like you've accomplished when you combine challenges. LOL!

So here is my contribution! I decided to try out the embossed shadowing technique that Madeline has shown us over at Inkspirations for you. I inked my Just Believe stamp up with versamark and then coloured the flowers in with Cajun Craze, then stamped and embossed my image with clear embossing powder. I then got a sponge dauber and More Mustard and inked around the images to give a etheral glow! It's not the best photo, but it was very hard to photograph without glare. Grrr!

Card: More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Basic Black, Very Vanilla
Ink: Versamark, Cajun Craze, Basic Black
Punches: Small Oval, Large Oval, Scallop Oval
Ribbon: Black Satin
Tools: Heat Tool, Clear Embossing Powder, Sponge Daubers
Stamp Set: Just Believe

Till next time, happy stamping...
