Judy (StampingQueenJar) has joined Holly (Toy) and me as a hostess for Splitcoast's Monday Technique Lover's Challenge...Whoohoo!!! She gave us a wonderful challenge...to create a background that is inspired by Belleek Pottery from Ireland by inking up the negative side of an embossing folder with a neutral ink and embossing either white or vanilla cardstock. This creates the illusion of porcelain....how cool is that!!!!!
This is also for the Embossing and Debossing Challenge on the Moxie Fab World's Blog. The challenge focus is on creative ways to emboss and deboss, where it's all about adding texture and dimension to our paper crafted projects.
I used Vanilla cardstock and Crumb Cake ink to create the background and the bird scene behind the window. The brayer was used to ink up the negative sides of the folders and then the vanilla c/s was placed in the folder and run through the Cuttlebug. Martha Stewart punches were used for the *window box* and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I haven't figured out yet if I am inside looking out at the bird scne with flowers on my window sill or if I'm outside looking in at the birds in my living room with the flowers in the window box....LOL!!!! I think you have to use your imagination on that one!!!
