It's time for a new challenge already at Allsorts and Liz is hosting this week with her optional theme of Embossing Folders. Hope you'll join us for your chance to win. We have prizes from Oakwood, Sizzix, AALL and Create and Craft Stash so don't miss your chance!! As mentioned it's an optional theme so all of your new creations are welcome.
I used the Penny Black stamp Dancing Daisies although they look like Black Eyed Susans to me and therefore I tried to ink up the stamp in the colors of those flowers. It's an older stamp so I don't have a link but Penny Black does have many other beautiful floral cling stamps. The stamping platform always comes in handy when using these brushstroke stamps as I get to add layers of colors. Maybe I added a bit too much Rusty Hinge here but my distress markers are barely working anymore so I had to use a full sized ink pad instead. I thought about investing in a full set of mini distress ink pads now that the markers are no longer available and those would be easier to control than a full size ink pad.
Sentiment is from the Penny Black set Blooming Sentiments. I layered the image/sentiment panel onto some mustard colored cardstock (a retired Stampin Up color) and added green jute twine by May Arts. I've had this argyle style embossing folder for a long time probably from Cuttlebug. I'm not too creative with my embossing folders so I simply used the folder with white card stock and layered the image panel onto it for a CAS style card.
