More Sticky Embossing

Evening Everyone.
We had another lovely class at Davina's this afternoon, and such different weather to last week.
Torrential rain this time instead of several inches of snow. Rain is so much more my thing than snow lol.
This week we were once again playing with USArtquest products only this time it was Pearlex dry powders, combined with sticky embossing powder and foils.
As I explained to the ladies today, I prefer to focus the class on playing with a technique, rather than actually finishing a card, and they agreed that this gave them all far more opportunity to try the products out.
I have been trying very hard to turn the bits made whilst demoing the techniques into finished cards instead of just adding them to yet another box and so this is what I made when I got home.
The black panel has been created using Stampendous SSC1111 Agapanthus Thankyou and an Artemio Script stamp.
Amazingly the panel at the back of this uses the same colours of Pearlex, but has had distress ink sponged over it.
This second card has been made using the same Agapanthus stamp set only this time I have stamped and embossed it using Versamark ink and white embossing powder.
The images have had Distress ink sponged over them and then I have used some sticky embossing powder, Pearlex powder and foil around the edges of the smaller panel.
I have also stamped the Artemio script stamp over all of the images using Distress ink.
Do make sure that you wipe over the finished panels to remove any excess ink which won't dry where it has been stamped over the embossed images.
Off to bed now, I might see if I can manage a lie in tomorrow, if the Grandchildren allow that is lol.

  5. It's more fun playing with techniques than putting the card together! Obviously didn't play enough as a child, and making up for it now. However, these are gorgeous Kim :)
