Happy Friday!

Today’s project is for the MIX83 and F4A236 Challenges at Splitcoaststampers.

I made a little scene using ink spray, inks and gesso. I added the final details to the water with Touch Twin markers. To finished my card I added some die cuts and a phrase from Impression Obsession and some Sand Ultra Fine Flower Soft for some added texture.

Butterfly Bag angle  Jeanne_Streiff
I cut my insert panels for my purse and added a scalloped border and the phrases. I die cut and embossed the butterfly and then added ink to the raised areas of the embossing with a blender pen.

Thanks For The Fun Technique!

I think most of you that follow my blog know that I love to make backgrounds. This week’s newsletter technique at  Splitcoaststampers is called Colored Dry Embossing. You can see the tutorial HERE. My project follows the tutorial fairly closely using Ranger Distress inks, dies and an embossing folder from Sizzix. You can see the full supply list at the bottom of this post.

Since they have such a nice tutorial at Splitcoast I’m just going to run through the steps with pictures today.Thanks Jeanne_Streiff
