The Caribbean Guava
You know, it's too bad Stampin' Up! didn't release these colours the same year. I think guava and caribbean together make a really fun colour combination. I threw in some gable green, because let's face it, that colour gets ignored, a lot. I considered using celery, but I thought, whynot gable? This card features a neat technique I saw in the latest Creating Keepsakes. Although I do not do much scrapbooking, I subscribe to this magazine for a few reasons, one of those reasons being Jennifer Maguire's Tools & Techniques column. She takes a particular product or technique and features it with least 8 cool ideas. Anyway, this month, embossed paper was the "tool". The cool idea- lightly stamp onto the raised parts of the embossed paper with a background stamp! I had to try this! I embossed my paper with various images from the Bodacious brass template. Then I inked up my Friend Definition and ever so gently stamped it. It really doesn't need a lot of pressure, you don't want to stamp beyond those raised images!
