Time for a card

It's been an age since I either made a card or entered a challenge. Well, I had some new stamps from Just Rite and some other new goodies that I really wanted to give a work out and I also love embossing, so decided to enter this card for the Fashionable Stamping Challenge where the theme is embossing. I used 4 different embossing techniques for this card: I embossed the background with a TH embossing folder, I embossed the vocal image and the butterfly with black EP after stamping them with Versamark, The word Imagine was embossed through a Spellbinders die, (the new Donna Salazar word dies), and the backing to the word is a tiny scrap of a paper using embossing powder after it has gone through an embossing folder that has been inked up. There is a cool tutorial on this on Splitcoast stampers, you can find it here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/fauxpatina/?utm_medium=Email&utm_source=ExactTarget&utm_cam. It's called Faux Patina, great fun to do.

I am also entering this for ”Simon Says Stamp “Your Favourite Word”

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
