Yesterday was a very thoughtful day. I was able to enjoy a day all to myself, which is quite rare in itself. I had grand plans, a bit too grand, but decided to change them all around and enjoy it differently. This was one of my moments spent, a very indulgent chunk of time working ink all over this lovely card.
I was given some new paper and brushes for my birthday, so of course I had to get to work using them. I took this beautiful paper to the brink of maximum absorption. Sometimes it just takes more time to get the colors just the way you want them. If you were to smooth your hand over the top of this card you would feel the difference in texture. The edges of course kept their very smooth surface, but the inked area is actually raised up. Cool, right?
I did start with the embossed phrase first. Then I worked around the edges and started in with all of the color mixing. This copper embossing powder is so fantastic, I absolutely love the color. It gives a much more masculine feel and goes better with my kind of color pallet ideas for sure. So, I basically just embossed my sentiment and then went to town on the ink til I was happy. And I am so happy, so very happy with this one. I tend to do my best work when I am creating for someone in particular, especially when that someone is my husband. What more can I say?
Have a creative day!
