All that aside, I've had back-to-back classes the last few days, and it's been fun sharing all the Noosa news and swaps with so many of you. I haven't had a chance to do any creating since I've been back, so I thought I'd show you the other card we made in last month's technique class, on embossing:We used the 'Fifth Avenue Floral' rose for the background, and embossed with clear powder. I love this effect of a raised shiny background. For the focal image, we stamped the rose again on watercolour paper and this time embossed with white powder. The colouring has been done with Patty Bennett's "Fool Proof Watercolouring" technique. So effective and easy to do!
Then some sponging, layering and paper piercing to finish off. The embellishment is Basic Grey Taffeta ribbon, a flower brad and a half pearl (I borrowed this genius idea from the very clever Teneale).
I'm hoping to get some creating time in tomorrow (fingers crossed!)
