Be Confident

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  It is Friday night for me - the beginning of the weekend - if it is not here for you yet - hold on it is not too far away.  I have had a lot of fun playing with Little Birdie Craftsstamps - so many to choose from and so many possibilities.

I have started by stamping the Little Birdie Crafts Clear Stamps - Script Heart 3x4 onto white card stock using Imagine VersaMark ink, followed by White Embossing Powder.  Next this has been heat set using a Heat Tool and randomly sponged using Imagine Memento Ink in Rhubarb Stalk, Dandelion and Teal Zeal Ink. 

 I have added some sponging over the image, which has been cut/embossed using the third largest die from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies and the Platinum 6 Die cutting and Embossing MachineI have used a Teal Zeal Water Marker around the paper piercing to create faux stitching.

The image has been popped up onto a card front that has been embossed using a Spellbinders Wood grain Embossing Folder
