Heat Embossing and Prismas.....



No photo description available.

Hello everyone: I'm really having fun coloring on dark card stock with my Prismacolor pencils, I think the colors get more intense because you have to apply a bit more pressure on the paper and you can always smooth the lines with paper stumps dipped in Gamsol.
My teammates and I over at the RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE, have a fun Tic, Tac, Toe board for you to play with, it's one of the favorites because you have a lot of choices to pick from to play.
I chose the middle vertical line, RIBBON OR TWINE, FLOWERS AND EMBOSSING, EITHER HOT OR DRY.
Here's my card.

This flower is from The Crafts Meaw and was gifted to me by a dear friend of many years, Patti Willey.  She is one of the many, wonderful people who I'm blessed to call FRIENDS, we exchange cards often and we love it.
She gave me this set a good 5 or 6 years ago, thank you Patti.
So I stamped the image with Versamark ink on a piece of dark gray paper and heat embossed it with Pearlescent embossing powder then I colored it with my Prismacolor pencils.  This paper has a bit of a shine and that's why I had such a difficult time taking this picture. 
The butterfly was stamped on Vellum and color with the pencils too.
The sentiment was stamped with Versafine ink.

*******************************************************
This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


The border is done with SU "Delicate Details", the sentiment is from Power Poppy "Pure Prairie Spirit" and the flower on the corner from Power Poppy "Simply Camelias".

I hope you get inspired to come along and play with us at the RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE, make sure you visit the blog to check out my teammates' beautiful creations.
Remember to use stamps that are OLDER THAN ONE YEAR, and if you can, please let us know how old they are or how long you've had them.

Thank you for stopping by, your comments always make my day.
Hugs.
Maria.

  1. Wow what a beauty! I can’t take credit for this gift however I’ve never heard of this stamp nor seen it until now. Maybe my memory is just not what it used to be. Your card layout and coloring superb!
