Hello friends!! Have a card today for my first ever PTI blog hop! I have been purchasing PTI products for four years now, but have never participated in their blog hop. At the end of last year I decided that this year I was going to try.... so here I am!!
Had lots of ideas for this month's challenge to use a black background, but as per usual with me... never got around to making anything until the chips were down this morning and I need to get something made. So I went super simple. I embossed the true black cardstock using the circles cover plate die (I love to emboss with the cover plates!) and then trimmed it down. After die cutting the flowers from the anniversary set Pretty Peonies I stamped them using SU!'s Pear Pizzazz and Rich Razzleberry inks. The rectangular label image was die cut from Smoky Shadow and then the image was stamped with VersaMark watermark ink, clear embossing powder applied and heat set. It was at this point in the process that I created a big mess with the embossing powder. The heat gun blew the excess powder all over my stamps!! Yikes.... anyway... got it all cleaned up and moved on to finishing the card! I don't like how the sentiment turned out... need to get a new pad of white ink.
Thanks for stopping by.....
