Thanks for Tea.....
Well, we are still coping with the snowy weather here............
Popped into my local craft store today, and they are going to stop selling copic's, as most customers are asking for promarkers....... apparently everyone is asking for them as that's what they see on the tv! grrrrrr!!!! It has been really handy, for replacing colours when they run out e.c.t.......I suppose the upside is that at the mo, they are selling them 3 for 2....so I may have to pop in and get a few more colours to add to my collection.....and find some Internet stockists for when I run out!
Well onto my card... My Lovely Bloggy friend Jane, sent me this stamped image...she is just soooooooo adorable!!!...... I have coloured her with copics, then I have inked around the edge with "distress ink - antique linen and spun sugar", I then inked the whole image up with a versamark inkpad and embossed the image with a holographic embossing powder.......I then added some hand stitching.
The Tea cup stamp, is from this months craft stamper magazine, I added the sentiment... although I kind of used the sentiment stamp free hand rather than on an acrylic block, so that I could curve the lettering slightly so it looked better on the cup.
The DP is "K&Co - Cut and Paste-chocolate lover"
I have f0llowed the sketch from the LOTV challenge....have to say Love this layout, Also it has been years since I have used this embossing technique, and Dena Featured it in a recent Craft Stamper magazine.....so I have to say a huge thank you to Dena for the inspiration of this card!
