MUAH!

Friday, April 4, 2014

I got some new stamping goodies in the mail from Mama Elephant and couldn't wait to ink them up so I teamed up the colors from Color Throwdown and the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch and put one of these stamps to work.



I learned this technique of doing a heat embossed sentiment over some sponged shapes at an Online Card Class that I took a while back.  (I think this is actually called "emboss resist").  Kristina Werner demonstrated this technique and I love how it looks with this big MUAH stamp!  In the video accompanying the class, she outlined the sentiment in a gray ink to make it stand out a little bit so I did the same.  I was a little nervous doing it, sure that I was going to wreck it, but I'm happy to say that I think it looks pretty good.  The effect is subtle, but makes a big difference in how the sentiment looks.

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper:  Classic White (Flourishes); Neenah Solar White; Pool Party (SU)

I thought you had added die cut letters on the stenciled ink splats - the gray outline gives great dimension! Love the big hashtag sentiment!
