Birthday Colour Challenge

The colour challenge today is so fresh and spring-like ~ Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue & Baja Breeze. Love it! I wanted a birthday card for another friend on the 30th so decided to use my brand new 'Engraved Greetings' I got for FREE during SAB. Yay! This is actually the simplest card, but I love how it turned out. Shimmery White cardstock makes anything prettier :)

My dear friend, Debra, taught me a trick ~ if you want to heat emboss an image but don't have the right coloured powder, just stamp the image in the classic ink of your choice, and then stamp directly over it with Versamark (using a Stamp a Majig) and use CLEAR embossing powder. It works BEAUTIFULLY. I added clear embossing powder to the main image to make it more prominent. I also wanted to make the image a little more interesting, so I stamped it again in Celery and punched out the centre with our tiny oval punch. Lots of dimensional layering and a few 1/2 crystals and hey presto! I think this is a VERY easy to achieve look. Hope Susie likes it ;)

Recipe
Stamps : Engraved Greetings
Cardstock : Shimmery White, Baja Breeze, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery
Ink : Celery, Baja, Versamark
Accessories : Big Shot, Polka Dot EF, Scallop Trim Border Punch, tiny oval punch, 1/2 Crystals, Clear Embossing Powder, Celery Taffeta Ribbon.
