I thought I was excited to go to Convention, but now I'm even more excited to work with all this amazing new product......So here we go....This month's featured stamp set is "Baroque Borders" S1208 and it's fabulous!. If you are coming here from Debra Van Patten's Blog you're on the right path.....and if you get lost along the way go to Helen Onulak's Blog for a full list of hoppers.
While preparing for Extravaganza I needed pictures and lots of them, so I asked my brother for pictures from his wedding last August....and I've decided to make a gift package for him and his new Wife for Christmas with his pictures. The wedding colors were black, grey and red.
I found this canvas picture frame at Micheal's and with a 50% off coupon I stole it for $1.50, I love a great deal!
The canvas is stamped with CTMH's new mini pigment inks. Pigment inks are the best for embossing and that's what I've done here. First I stamped the background image with the new color "Slate" and black. I inked up the stamp with the slate color then dabbed the stamp randomly with the black along the edges. Once stamped I added clear embossing powder and set. For the flourish I used the new color "Ruby" and repeated the same process. After the flourish was set, I filled in the un-embossed areas with black ink and distressed the edges with black ink. The project was decorated with Opaques Adhesive Gems "Licorice".
As a final touch I added a chunky charm I made with some bits and pieces I had laying around. Helpful Hint: Don't forget to pick up a few of the new Stamp Scrubbers.....I have 3 of them....one for dye ink, one for pigment ink and one for staz on.
