Make It Monday #176

This week, over on Nichole's blog,
Laura's video shows how to create 
a background using embossing paste.
She uses reinkers to color it. Brilliant!
So I'm playing along! =)
I did add embossing powder while
my paste was wet, and heated it 
once it dried....for extra sparkle!

OCC Day 7

Hello! I'm back with the lesson
from day 7-graphic stamps. This
is an area in which I don't dabble 
much. I don't have any graphic 
stamps. I found a small set of
Ikat ones...

Julie Ebersole made a beautiful 
card using the kissing technique.
My stamps already had a texture
to them so I opted not to try this.
Not the best photo...but I have to 
take them in the early morning.
(and I take them with my phone...bleh)
Thanks for stopping by!
