Wow she seriously looks hung over or all the worlds troubles are on her shoulders. How many of us have looked like that at some time or another?? Her mum looks as if she is writing a little note to cheer her up!! My mind certainly gets imaginative when I make something but I adore the image which you can find here that I just had to use it.
Love challenges because they remind you to do things that you haven’t done for ages or you have forgotten about them. Fashionable Stamping have the theme this fortnight of “Can U Resist”. We have Fliss to thank for this challenge and for making me nudge my brain about resist terchniques.
Wax paper was used for this technique which I haven’t done in ages!! Who also remembers doing this from their school days when wax paper was so readily available … ehh not with embossing folders just by scrunching the paper in your hand!!
Embossed a piece of wax paper with an A4 Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Garden Lattice. (When you break the fibers of the wax paper it enables you to use as a resist.) Sandwiched it between two pieces of cardstock (works better on glossy or satin) placed a piece of copy paper over the top then ironed. It makes the most delicious background but you can’t see it until you add some ink. Ink used was Fired Brick, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and Vintage Photo. Gently blended the colours over the top and then like magic the embossing begins to appear.
The stamped sentiments came from a Dyan Reaveley Quintessential Quotes set. Both ladies are from Flonzcrafts you can find one above and the other here . “Just A Note” is an Anita’s stamp from Docrafts, ladies face on the tag is a Creative Expressions stamp. The postcard with the flowers from Crafty Individuals was stamped onto a die cut envelope, added a tag inside and also one on the outside. In the right hand corner a PaperArtsy mini stamp was used called French Script.
