It's a Wednesday afternoon of a busy change-filled week here. Everything's fine but life happens, and ours has felt some unsettling emotional highs and lows the past few days.
I'm welcoming and inviting my favorite therapy - stamping - to work it's wonders!
There's something so soothing and thoroughly engrossing about stamps, paper and ink and the things you can do with them. I've been experimenting with techniques lately and while I enjoy that it does put me out of my comfort zone when it's time to incorporate them into a card.
Today's card highlights a stencil technique completed with embossing paste and then heat embossing.
My panel began with kraft card stock and the Caroline stencil from Simon Says Stamp. I filled in the spaces with embossing paste in an even layer. While it was still wet, I sprinkled on embossing powder and heat set it. Loved the resulting elegant shimmer with a bubbled rich texture.
I don't send too many Valentines, but they are so fun to make that I will be finding friends to send them too.
Thanks so much for visiting today!
