Fun with a Crafting Friend

Hello All and Happy Monday!

Today I'm sharing a card that I created using a colorful panel created during a visit to new crafting friend Doni High (Lime Green Giggles) home last week.  It's been years since I played with the emboss resist technique and Doni put a new twist on it  by using metal dies in conjunction with the coloring.   What a fun day we had!


We stamped a large background stamp using versamark onto watercolor paper then embossed using white embossing powder.  Then we started the coloring process using distress inks onto a craft mat, spritzed with water.  By using a paint brush, you brush the ink inside the metal die opening to create your pattern.  I used various colors and different sized dies.   Isn't that cool???




Here's a peek at Doni concentrating on the panel she was creating.  She used a square die which worked really well too.  I was amazed how different (yet same) each of our panels looked when completed.   Here's also a peek at one side of Doni's crafting space ... now you can see where her blog name came from!  LOL

Did you spot Doni photo bombing my photo of her craft space?  LOL ... she's so much fun!

I created a second panel which you will see in card form down the road, and on that panel I simply did an ombre coloring style (in purple of course).   It's amazing how fast time goes when you're having fun with a friend!  Before I knew it, dinnertime was upon me and I had to get back home.  BUT ... we live close enough to each other that I'm sure we will enjoy many more fun crafting days together!

As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!

Ooops!  I was having so much fun sharing our fun day I forgot to share the other elements of this card.  I've used the Poppystamps 'Jumbled Happy Birthday' die set as my sentiment.  Cut once in white and once from a scrap of white that I inked up using Tim Holtz Salty Ocean distress ink then off set them to create a shadow effect.  I didn't like the sentiment directly on my colorful panel so I adhered them to a sheet of vellum , cut it out in a rectangle and adhered in the corners with glue dots.  Viola!
