Long Day and got the urge to stamp

I had an early day today.  By early, I was parking in the parking lot at 6:10am.  I thoroughly dislike early shifts, but the plus is I get out of work early too.

So today, after I got out of work and my chiropractor appointment, I was researching - yeah, RESEARCHING - on Pinterest and came across a video tutorial for an Embossed Layered Resist technique by Hero Arts.  I liked how the card looked, the technique looked easy, so off I toddled into the Dungeon to play.


Not bad for a first attempt.  I can nit-pick this card to death, but I love the softness of the color combo and my choice of ink colors to pop the image.

It's a Papertrey Ink day: all stamps and cardstock are from there.  The background is Background Basics - Text Style 1 and it's stamped in Palette Charcoal on Vintage Cream.  The reverse leaf image and sentiment "friend" are from Text Boxed.  The leaf image is stamped in Versamark and clear embossed while the word is stamped in PTI Ocean Tides.  The reversed image is colored in with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Inks and the edges of the image panel are "dirtied" up with them as well.

The image panel is layered on Ocean Tides cardstock, tied with Ocean Tides Swiss Dot Satin Ribbon and then layered on a Fine Linen card base.

Supplies: Stamps: PTI - Background Basics Text Style and Text Boxed.  Paper: Ocean Tides, Vintage Cream and Fine Linen.  Ink: Palette Charcoal, Ocean Tides, Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.  Accessories: clear embossing powder, ribbon, dimensionals.

That's all for right now.  Here's hoping tomorrow flies by - I have a long weekend coming up!
