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!
