Make It Monday Challenge #8/CR84FN21
It's MIM time again at Papertrey Ink! This week's challenge is to use ink shading on your project. I've only ever inked the edges of my paper, so fortunately there's a video by Betsy Veldman showing how to do something a little more elaborate! I chose to use the colors from the CR84FN21 challenge--just because I loved them. Isn't their graphic gorgeous?
First I embossed BB: Text Style over the cream background with clear embossing powder. Next, I stamped images from Life in Smokey Shadow. Finally, I used three Distress Inks to shade the background, and wiped the excess ink off the embossing. I added mats, ribbon, a tag and trim, and trimmed one end with pinking shears. Not unique, but a good canvas upon which to practice a new technique!
