Somehow this last card from Open House last month never got posted!! This was the only original card I created for the Open House :)
The colors are Elegant Eggplant, Summer Starfruit & Baja Breeze. We embossed with Swallowtail on Naturals Ivory Card Stock with Clear Embossing Powder, then used a Sponge Dauber to apply color over the embossing. I generally like to tap the dauber over the embossing, then rub also to get the color down onto the card stock. Once you have applied all the color you'd like, rub over it all with a tissue. This will remove any ink that is sitting on the embossing and prevent you from getting ink where you don't want it. The Swallowtail was attached to a Summer Starfruit layer for accent, then onto the Eggplant card base. The saying was from Teeny Tiny Wishes. It was stamped in Eggplant, punched with the Word Window and attached to an Eggplant Modern Label Punch. At the edge of the label we added Mini Silver Brads before attaching over the Swallowtail with dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by today!!
