I am sooooo in love with this new holly embossing folder. I only bought it today so was dying to try it out when I got home and as I have an Alcohol Inks class in the morning I thought I would combine work with play and design a new card just for my ladies..........Hi Shar.....and Ingrid:)
I wanted to use this lovely cardstock which is corrugated on one side and cream speckled on the other and I think it works really well with the embossed panel.
The embossed panel is some strange self adhesive metallic sort of plastic and it takes the inks so beautifully.
First I embossed the panel in the folder then added a base coat of neat Stream and Meadow Alcohol Ink. The next coat was Bottle with Gold Additive.
Once dry I coloured the berries with a peeloff pen.
The rest was just matting and layering and adding the ribbon..........please be mightily impressed with the bow..........that was my first attempt and I nearly had to pick myself up off the floor I was so shocked that it turned out. I am not a very good tier of bows usually.....lol!!!
I've made two cards tonight and you should see the mess I have made. Honestly I am such a messy worker..........best get tidied up so that I can find the things I need to take to work in the morning.
I have the Blog Candy now......just need to photograph it and I shall start the ball rolling on Friday for that.
Bye for now.
