Black and White

{jane bosi}  Happy Thursday, Junkies!!  I have a simple heat embossed card to share today that features a beautiful image called Flourished Floral.

I often find inspiration, like lots of you, on Pinterest.  Years ago, when I saw a project that I loved, I searched diligently to obtain the exact product used so I could completely copy the whole thing.  After many years of hoarding.......collecting, inspiration happens differently and I am always delighted when I am already set to go!  I love making the most of what I already have.  It's one of the reasons I have loved Technique Junkies for so long!

I embossed both the Flourished Floral image and the So Sweet sentiment using white pigment ink and white embossing powder.  When embossing on black, I am always certain to use my embossing buddy to reduce random areas of powder cling---I hate that messy speckled look!

Once the embossing cooled, I was able to add some multi-colored gems and mat and mount the image piece.  It's really a striking card, in real life!!  You should totally give it a whirl!!

 By the way, the Technique Junkie CD's are the perfect addition to your stamping stash.  The tutorials found on each CD provide you with lots of inspiration and new ways to use the products you already own.  Definitely check them out!!  Use coupon code  techniques at checkout to receive a 25% discount on all CDs!!  Isn't that awesome?

TTFN, Jane

Had to pin this so I can CASE it. The Flourished Floral is one of my favourite stamps and I have it. Absolutely stunning work.
