Dream Gardens

I am heading to a shoebox swap next weekend and came up with this as my project. I have been dying to use this stamp set since I bought it. i think this one is great to use with the emboss resist technique because it has the design in the negative space of the bold stamp. I stamped my image in versamark ink and covered it with black embossing powder then heat set. Next I sponged over the image with inks to match my designer paper and then framed the image using the negative piece that was left over when i ran my paper through the bigshot using the lattice die. No waste!

I'm Finally Back From Vacation

I'm sorry I have been away for so long. I was on vacation from work and back and forth to the doctors and had oral surgery. But I am finally back in the groove of things and here is a card I would like to share. I used my Copic portable Airbrushing System 2 for the first time today. So fun! I like how the Stampin Up Medallion background Stamp sort of looks like coral.
