Glassy Embossing - February-March 2010 TJ


This just a fun card to make, plain and simple. The animal stamps are from Stampin' Up and the background stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms. I used the Burnished Background technique as well to add some definition to the background stamped area. Such an easy technique to use -- and what a difference it makes. The flowered piece of designer background paper is where you see the Glassy Embossing technique applied. It adds just the right touch to this whimsical card. The ground is applied direct to paper from several ink pads. I find that the small spots are the easiest to use when using the Direct to Paper technique. I used my own cloud template and sponged pale blue ink for the sky. All the animals were colored with my copics.
I am thinking Happy Spring thoughts even though the snow outside my door - still in mounds - does not look Spring! Surely, Spring is on the way! So happy Spring everyone!
