Did you know…
If the squirrels in my attic were raccoons, my homeowners insurance would cover the treatment and any damage done.
Because they are squirrels (considered a rodent…didn’t I say that yesterday?) the expense is on us.
Don’t you love insurance companies? Right.
Onward and upward…
Today’s project was an experiment using a color combo and technique.
Blues and greens together are one of my favorite color combinations, but today I experimented with several different third colors for this combination.
Using Summer Silhouette stamp set and an embossing technique created this soft look. Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…
- Paper: 3 1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White notecard plus Pear Pizazz cardstock
- Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point and Pear Pizzaz plus Memento Black
- Stamps: An Open Heart (sentiment), Gorgeous Grunge and Summer Silhouette
- Tools ‘N Embellishments: Versamark Ink, White Embossing Powder, Linen Thread, Sponge Dauber
- 3 1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecard
- Whisper White layer is 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″
- The Pear Pizazz layer is 3 3/8″ x 4 7/8″
- Ramdomly stamp images in Versamark Ink and cover with White Embossing Powder, heat
- The Gorgeous Grunge stamp was used to suggest the top flower is blowing away in the wind. I love to suggest movement in my images.
- Using sponge dauber add colors to background
- Stamp image
- Add Linen Thread to lower half of card front
- Layer over the Pear Pizazz layer and then to card front.
- Inside I have the one flower (shown at top left) embossed and sponged around just a little
- You could also add to your envelope
- Don’t forget your personalized stamp on the back of your card.
Playing around I have created several other color combinations and embossed images. This is a fast and impressive technique…I hope you will give it a try.
Here’s your “B-ism” for today…
Wish squirrels could change into raccoons!
Let’s get inky…and Be HaPpY!
