What you will need:
A wood or acrylic block
Embossing ink (embossing powder is optional)
Sponge or daubers
- First you wrap several rubber bands around your block, criss-crossing them in various directions.
- Next, take your rubber-banded block and ink up the rubber bands with your embossing ink (I used Versamark) and stamp onto your cardstock. I went in several different directions until I had filled the cardstock with the impressions.
- Now you can either let your embossing ink dry, or if you prefer, you can apply embossing powder and heat emboss.
- Lastly, apply your ink using your sponges or daubers to add color to the cardstock. The embossing ink, or embossed images will resist the ink, leaving your with a unique design.
My second card, using the same Lexicon of Leaves set, is from the VSN weekend - the challenge was to make a card that a man would/could make and send to someone. I coloured the leaf with versa mark pen with Night of Navy Ink. I do like these leaves and the oak leaf isn't too bad to cut away from it's original image.
I think I'm into leaves right now because it's snowing again here. Oh how I long for the buds to appear on the trees and
uncurl into greeness!!!!!
I'm off to watch a video on Strauss....got to make sure it's up to par for my music classes.
