I made a second card using the sketch challenge from Splitcoast Stampers that I thought I would show today.
The Stamped image is from Gina K's Elegant Flowers set. I had coloured the first one using my Copic markers but although I had stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and heat set it the colours bled quite badly so I wouldn't use it. The second one I stamped the same on the same Gina K Pure Luxury 120lb card stock. This time I clear embossed it and used my coloured pencils with baby oil to blend. I'm pretty sure if I'd embossed the first one I wouldn't have had the problem but wouldn't take the chance!!!
I started with a white A5 card - ran some Barely Banana card through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The DP is from SU patterns pack II which is a 6" x 6" double sided paper. I punched out along one side using the spiral punch from SU. The stamped image is mounted to the embossed Barely Banana mat with foam tape.
Walshie and I drove down to Manly yesterday for a walk. It was nice to get out of the house and take in the sea air, the sun was out but it was still quite breezy. There were still plenty or sun worshipers lying in the sun which made me laugh as I had a roll neck jumper on and jeans!! We stopped and had lunch at the Deli before heading home which made it a pleasant little outing. I always have my little point and click camera in my bag so took a couple of pics to show you. I'm going to try and add them here at the bottom of this post.....fingers crossed.
Have a great day.
