Hampton Art | You are no. 1...

Hi Everyone! I've been playing around with stamps a lot lately, thanks mostly to the wonderful DT opportunity at Hampton Art.  Most of the time, I have no clear idea what I am going to create until I have those stamps on paper.  But sometimes I have an idea stuck in my head and I play until I see the result on paper to match.  *grin*

This card I am sharing today was a little bit like that... an experiment!  LOL!  A simple-in-design experiment!

 
"You are No.1"


products used: stamps: Hampton Art for Echo Park - "About a Boy" (SC0526); "Scoot" (SC0528)
ink: Archival Ink (jet black); VersaMark (watermark).
 
other - cardstock, acrylic paint, clear embossing powder, post-it notes, soft paint brush.
 
I am just getting the hang of this embossing business too!  LOL!  Yes.  I know I am late to the party.  But I can now say I am have quite a bit of fun with it.  However, the next tool on my wish list to purchase will be a heat gun.  *grin*  Currently I am still hovering my cardstock over the toaster just to melt the embossing powder!!! 

For the full tutorial, please visit here.  But it is fairly simple and I am sure you can work it out from the photos...x










Thanks so much for visiting...x
