Happy Monday! I hope you're all OK. I've been MIA as I'm buried deep in paperwork right now, but I'm just squeezing in a few spare moments to share some pretty cool news that I've been sat on for what feels like an age. Oh and I'm also sharing a card with you as well of course - what else?! Today's card was created a while back for a Passion for Papertrey challenge that has now ended (sorry!).
The challenege was to create your own background and I couldn't resist giving some inky love to a much neglected PTI set: Studio Style. The buttons in the set just called to be used as a background in one way or another.
I also added a bit more interest to my design by clear embossing a jar of buttons. It looks way more effective for real, you'll just have to take my word for it!
- I added a few dots of Glossy Accents to keep the twine flowing in a whimsical kinda style. Do the same to yours to make it behave!
- When embossing over a sentiment, be sure to stamp your sentiment first and let that ink dry thoroughly before stamping and embossing any images over the top. If you don't, embossing powder could stick to your sentiment or if you emboss first, you won't have an even surface to stamp your sentiment on.
And you rock too of course! Thank you so much for visiting today. Cue normal blogging schedule and visits around Blogland after this final week of term - I promise! :)
