Hope you are having a great Monday! I am doing good and enjoying the cooler weather here in Michigan. Today's card is a continuation of my Asian inspired cards with heat embossing. I call this card "Scrolls with Dragonfly".
Stamp-Chinese Traditional from Blockheads
Coffee Bean Brilliance Pigment Ink
Faded Jeans Distress Ink
Antique Linen Distress Stain
Brushed Pewter Metallic Stain
Brown Embossing Powder
CS: White, cherry red, dark brown
Grunge Board Dragonfly Die Cut
Stamp the Scrolls image twice on White CS - one directly under the other.
Heat emboss with brown embossing powder.
To make the background, apply the Antique Lined stain and Faded Jeans Distress ink to the stamped and embossed piece. Trim to size.
Place the ribbon over the area where the two stamped images meet.
To add pizzazz to the Grunge Board die cut apply Faded Jeans DI and then the Metallic Stain.
Dry with heat tool. Glue to the ribbon.
Layer onto a dark brown card base and a layer of cherry red CS. Add two pewter colored brads to the bottom of the card.
I love the way this stamp looks stamps twice. It appears as if it is a larger background stamp. Great way to maximize the value of my stamps!! Oh, life is great!! LOL
