The House that Stamps Built. What a deal! Check out their other awesome stamps at the same time- available wood mounted or really reasonably priced unmounted.
I stamped the bird and blossoms onto velum and colored with markers from behind. I also sponged and embossed the oval cut with my nesties. The background is a new embossing folder technique I will be demonstrating at a gathering of stampers the end of the month in Madison. It is very subtle and the paper is not embossed. You ink up the inside of a embossing folder (this one is from Cuttlebug) and use your brayer to transfer the image to your paper. The corners are rounded and I added pearls to complete the card.
I am leaving today for a week plus trip to sunny warm Arizona to visit my sister and brother-in-law. Will be sooo great to get out of snowy Wisconsin and relax in warm weather. I will (to be honest) miss blogging, but have scheduled a few posts for you while I am gone.
Stamping and vacation smiles, Karen
