Make My Monday Challenge # 44

This weeks challenge is to EMBOSS. This can be using embossing powder or using an embossing folder like I did on my background layer. My die cut on top of that is also embossed. I've used more Altenew 3 step roses and leaves. Go on over to the Make My Monday Challenge blog and show us what you have embossed.

Clean and Simple





I'm entering this card into 3 challenges. I've blended 3 distress inks under the cut out circle top layer and added a 3 step rose. The sentiment is a die cut.

Black and White with one other color.

That is the challenge at Seize The Birthday. I thought why not try blackish roses.

 I'm also adding this to Pammies Inkie Pinkies Challenge Blog whose them is always anything goes.

Make My Monday Challenge #42

For this weeks challenge I revisited a technique I learned a few years ago. It's called Rainbow Double. You need Glossy card stock and I used the Kaleidacolor Ink Pad Bouquet. First you stamp a few images with Versa Mark. Brayer your ink over the card stock. Wipe with a paper towel. Next rub an embossing buddy over the whole think. and stamp a few more images with either Versa Mark or white pigment ink. Emboss with white Embossing Powder. Now you can stop there or you can stamp a few more images with a matching ink which I did.

All you have to do is emboss with white EP.

I've been stamping more roses.

I stamped a bag full this afternoon. All colors. I'm really liking them now that I've figured them out. I will have to get another flower stamp set to try now. These were perfect for a couple of challenges. 

I followed the layout from Altenew Stamp Blog. And I used a couple of the colors.
The stamps used are from Altenew.

I'm also using this card for Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge Blog.
Challenge 1711- Anything Goes.

And I'm joining the Curtain Call Challenge once again. I've used the colors as well as the patterned backgrounds from their Inspiration photo.
