White Rabbit Syndrome
Less is More entry. The challenge this time is for a one layer card using either dry or heat embossing. I began by stamping this Elusive Images stamp with Olympian Green Versafine and embossing it with clear EP.I stamped it again on spare paper and cut it out to to make a stencil which I used to sponge colour on to the flowers through. I used DIs in Scattered Straw, Tattered Rose and Bundled Sage. Then I stamped the Infinite Beauty quote, a wood mounted Impression Obsession stamp in the Versafine ink and embossed it with the clear EP again.I thought it looked a bit stark so I added a few EI tiny butterflies in the Distress colours I'd used on the main image.It was still a little bit flat looking so I dug out an embossing stencil that I had years ago ( before the days of Cuttlebugs etc ) and hand embossed a circle around the stamped image. I was quite surprised to see how much differnce it made. I should have done a before and after photo but I didn't think of it at the time.
