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!

Stamps: Blooming with Kindness
Paper: Kraft, Whisper White, DSP-Sweet Surrender by Tina Higgins
Ink: Black, Perfect Plum
Other: Pearls, White Satin Ribbon

Hi Tina! Love your card. The way you did the focal image is just lovely. Love the soft look. Can't wait to see your room. I found you from SCS..I feel in love with the picture of the ribbon storage idea on there..I am trying to figure out how to store mine as I am making a room and want it to be neat. Enjoy settling into your new home.
