An Impressionable Pansy?

Click on image to enlarge

The little extra mid-week dare on DCM is called "Did we make an impression?" and the challenge is to use dry embossing in whatever form. Well, those of you who have visited before will know that I need no excuse to get my cuttlebug folders out! One of the things I love about them is the way they change certain card and that's what's happened here. The backing card is a purple holographic that I put through the swiss dots folder and added a piece of knotted ribbon to. Of course the nature of this type of card makes it very difficult to photograph! The stamps used came with my Graphicus Guild membership pack and were stamped with onyx black versafine and the pansy coloured using inketense pencils. the only other additions were the brads. The quality of these stamps is excellent and if you enlarge the picture you will see that the pansy image was stamped onto a linen card and has come up perfectly. A very simple card but I hope you like it and thanks for your visit.

  10. I particularly like the effect of the stamping on the linen look paper. It makes the flower look translucent, like in real life.
