July 24, 2014

Today I am posting two cards with different styles. They are the same flower image but stamped and colored differently.  The first is a regular black ink and pencil colored. This one is softer and the color has a brushed quality.
The second is embossed with black powder with spectrum noir colored (PP3, PP5). This one is very bold and has a great shine; however, the color looks a little plastic. I just can’t get the hang of blending….no matter how hard I try.

The white backgrounds are both Cricut cuts from elegant edges, I welded a border to a triangle from storybook.
Hope you like seeing these two techniques together and come again.
