A Little Rusty...

Ok, maybe VERY rusty, lol. My room is set up, not done yet, but set up!! It's so nice to have a space again. I've been painting a big U-shaped desk and shelving unit like a mad woman and finally the hard work is paying off. Now I just have to find the time to build wall units for all my ribbon, buttons, and punches. When that's done, I'll post pictures!

I hope I'm not the only one experiences "crafters block" after a long break of crafting. It's almost like your brain forgets what goes together and what doesn't. So with that in mind I went for a case. I'm not sure who to give the credit to as I saw a few of this style in the Splitcoaststampers gallery but it's definitely not my original creation.

I embossed the flower with white embossing powder, although it looks more like ivory in the image. Then I used my sponges and swirled Perfect Plum on top, the embossed area resists the colour leaving you with a beautiful image!
