The crafting world gets back to normal after this year's CHA...
It was fun seeing the sneak peeks of products and people. One of my favorites is Jennifer McGuire. This week's Dynamic Duos card is a tribute to her!
First, the colour challenge:
Its soft and subtle week, with an aqua and dusty rose combination.
I reproduced an effect Jennifer demonstrated HERE: she calls it "faux letterpress."
It involves using a cutting plate to emboss onto watercolour paper, then using Distress Markers to "paint" the resulting image. Here's the materials I used:
The Distress Markers are evergreen bough and tattered rose.
The cutting plate is Lil' Inker's swirls cover-up die.
Here's the card:
I couldn't bear to cover up that lovely organic image, so I heat-embossed my sentiment onto vellum, another technique I've been seeing lately. I used some more Lil' Inker products: Spot On stamp set--great big sentiment words and cute circular accents; and their new On the diagonal die which has the LID distinctive stitched edge. I machine-stitched the banner onto the card and left the thread ends hanging. Another new thing, but it has me itching to trim them!
Time to check out the creations from the other Dynamos!
