Scrapbook Boutique ~ September 2015 Challenge

Thinking of You

Finally, I get a chance to play along again with my favourite ladies at Scrapbook Boutique!  The September Challenge at SBB is very delicate and feminine, which can be a bit of a stretch for me!!
There's a lot of gorgeous lacy detail, along with the subtle pink through to deep musky colours.  I'll be honest ~ it took me a while to think of how I wanted to tackle this one, but I'm pretty happy with how my card turned out!
I used the "Lovely Lace" Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up!, but not for a dry embossing technique.  Instead, I used White Craft Ink from SU! to ink up the raised side of the embossing folder and I stamped that onto my white cardstock.  I then heat embossed with vanilla embossing powder.  I love using my tools in a way different to their original intention!!

Next, I used my Prismacolour pencils to colour in the embossed images (I did this whilst watching the Brownlow Medal Count on TV on Monday night!)  Some of the colouring has been blended out with Zest-it, whilst other areas I have left the wax-bloom in place for a different texture and look.

My final part was to mat the card on a darker colour paper onto my cardbase and to create a sentiment piece to pop up on the front.  Overall, I'm very happy with this card!  I hope you like it!

Thanks for visiting!
