here, and I would appreciate it, if you have time, pay Pam a visit to wish her husband & her happiness on their special day. She also has some nice prizes, plus she has wonderful cards to enjoy.
OK, here's the card I'm going to send for Pam's challenge. It didn't turn out as I had envisioned, but as the saying goes: It is what it is. I was trying something with the sponging, and one of these days, I'm going to get that technique right!!
White cardstock base was embossed with S/Binder Scalloped Labels One, die #5. There's a technique showing how to emboss without cutting here. This video was sort of my jumping off place, but I didn't want to use glossy cardstock or use a brayer. After stamping Penny Black Holly Berries with versamark, embossed it with Ranger Seafoam white. Cut a paper mask with the same size S/B die, then used a large dauber to sponge on Memento New Sprout over the resist. Next sponged with Memento Pear Tart in different areas, reinked the stamp with Memento Pistachio, stamped it once more, then again without reinking. Stamped the sentiment with Pistachio. I had thought to use an embossing folder border on each side, but there didn't seem to be enough room, so I decided to use a white ribbon from the stash. I intend to try this technique again, probably using thicker weight cardstock - perhaps the Coredinations whitewash pack.
I'm going to link this to Pumpys 50th Anniversary Challenge. Many Congratulations Pumpy to you & Tony.
