No Colouring Colour....

 I needed a really quick little 'thinking of you' note to send to a friend - wouldn't you think I would have one tucked away with all the cards I make! But no, there wasn't a suitable one, and I was about to miss the last mail of the day,  so I hit on the idea of white heat embossing this pretty flower from the Friends Forever stamp set by Clearly Besotted Stamps.......



and then all I did was quickly sponge some distress inks with a blending tool over and around the flowers. A quick wipe with a damp cloth lifted the ink off the embossing. This is one of those cards that is actually a lot more striking in real life, but I rather like the effect, what do you think?


I have had a few emails from folk who, for various reasons, do not go on Facebook and thought that they would miss out on what I am posting for Fiskars over there, so every so often, I will share a post showing some of the creations that I have made for the Fiskarettes page. I know that if you do follow on FB that you will have already seen them, but I'm sure you won't mind the occasional post sharing with your fellow blog hoppers, there won't be a daily overlap I promise

Right, I'm away to my desk I have a list as long as my arm of stuff to do today so I'll see you tomorrow

    I like your embossed card Enfys. Embossing is not a quick technique for me. I do love the effect though. Thanks for sharing your FB posts here as I am not on FB either.
