Hey everyone! I hope you are enjoying the Sneak Peeks at The Alley Way Stamps.. Today is the last day to see what is new and do the Hop! Hope you will join us..
Well I have to tell you I was totally inspired by Danielle Daws creation she just made using some of the new TAWS stamps.. that I had to make a creation myself..
I wanted to enter this into the WOW embossing powder June Challenge.. I know it's the "best of the British" but lucky for me.. hehe.. that is the USA colors as well.. so I thought.. hmm.. how can I use the embossing powders that I have in a creative and fun way.. so I did 2 things..
First.. the middle strip of chevrons.. the red and white are embossed.. I didn't have navy blue, or I would have used that as well.. I sectioned it off and used it to make different colored little chevrons.. I love how it turned out.. I wanted this piece to stand out a little bit more so I popped it up on some pop dots.. As I was looking at it I thought.. it needed a sentiment.. so I went to my stash of red cardstock.. and NOTHING matched.. so I did what everyone would do.. improvised.. I inked up the little banner solid with red embossing powder.. then I inked up my sentiment "friend" using versamark ink. BEFORE heating I stamped the word into the dry embossing powder.. this lifted the red from the white cardstock to revile the sentiment. I like how it turned out.. then I heat embossed it! :)
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.. HUGS
