Today Phil and I are celebrating our 19th Wedding Anniversary :). I thought I’d share the card I made for him now as I have some more projects to share with you later today. He decided we’d do our card exchange at dinner so he has to wait a bit till he gets to see it.
When I saw the Darling Donkeys set in the Sale-A-Bration brochure I knew exactly what their first inking would be :). I’ve teamed it with the Oh So Ombre paper – also from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. The sentiment is from Many Mates – a great ‘go to’ sentiment set.
The donkey has been heat embossed then coloured in with our Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. To heat emboss I inked up the image with VersaMark then Basic Grey ink and stamped him on Whisper White and added Clear Embossing Powder before heating. This method allows you to have an embossed image in whatever colour you want. Check back later today for more projects using this technique.
Here’s a closeup – hopefully you can see that the image has been heat embossed. Once I’d coloured him in I used the Color Lifter blend to lighten the body and the hooves. By doing this it gives you more colour options.
And no card is complete without stamping on the inside. Again this little donkey has been heat embossed in the same way as the front image was. The sentiment – which is perfect for my card – is from Dandelion Wishes.
Well that’s all from Mrs Reid :). Until next time …
Have a great day.
