Greetings on a Friday - hurray for the weekend!! This has been a busy week (aren't they all - for all of us??!!) so this will be quick. Don't forget to come back tomorrow for our VC Blog Hop where you can visit a whole bunch of blogs and see what we have been up to.
Here's a card I love to make - can be a bit messy (or is that just me??), but such beautiful results can happen with different colors. Let me know which you prefer and I will send one of you that card along with a blank one for you to finish as you like.
These cards were done with the same color markers but using either black or vanilla embossing powder - what a difference in the "pop" of the colors.After the marker colors dry a bit, you will see that the color on the embossed parts fades away, leaving the cardstock colored parts showing. Hope that makes sense ... you will want to softly wipe with a tissue after they dry before you send them or your recipient may get other colors on their hands!
For this card, I used current SU colors: Rich Razzleberry c/s with these markers: Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum, Daffodil Delight and I did use Always Artichoke for both cards.
Send me pix if you try this yourself (at firstname.lastname@example.org) - experiment with your colors and have fun!! This is my fave background stamp to use for this, but SU has and has had many stamps that would work - I still like to use Stipple Rose too. And no, I am not a hoarder, just a pack rat!! After all, if I would have gotten rid of all my retired In-Color ink pads, I would have had to purchase some of them again after they came back in the line-up! See, I saved money ....
See you right back here tomorrow!! Come prepared to get excited and enthused with all the creations!!
Hugs, and God Bless you all, Shirley
