Vintage Friend

Today was club with my girls and we had a blast as usual! Lots of fun and good times all round!! We did get some cards made too! This was inspired by a swap I received and a request from the hostess to do embossing. I hadn't done emboss resist for a while, so I decided to give it a whirl. Love how it came out, and all the girls did too!

Colors are Soft Suede, Not Quite Navy & Vanilla. To start, with the background Vanilla & front main image vanilla, we embossed the images with clear embossing powder. On the background, I did about 4 big flowers, & 3-4 small flowers all randomly placed. Next we grabbed the vine like image and the Soft Suede ink and filled in around the flowers. You can get ink on the flowers at this point, and rub it off with a Kleenex. I did some of the vines full strength, and some stamped off once. After removing any Soft Suede ink, I then grabbed a sponge and the Not Quite Navy ink. Sponge over the embossed images until you have the desired amount of color/coverage. Then, grab the Kleenex again and rub off excess Not Quite Navy. Finally, grab another sponge and the Soft Suede ink. Sponge around the edges, and in any background areas that you would like, I pretty much filled all mine in-not intensely, but lightly.

Layer together with the Soft Suede dotted grosgrain (dots down). Very vintage! and image the other possible color combinations!! Enjoy!!
