Two actually. Same concept for both. You pick.
For the first one I used Distress Ink and heat embossed it with clear powder. Mr. Tim does this successfully. I never have. (Pads not juicy enough??? Yo no se.) So I stamped over the image with Versamark and then heat embossed again with clear. Happy accident = notice the shadow effect to the main image. Muy coolio.
I also gave my masked circles some extra treatment. Water splashing. Extra stamping. Definitely adds interest but I wasn't sure I wanted so much interest. Enter second card.
For this one I used Amuse pigment ink for the image. The embossing really didn't work here either so I did the Versamark over the top thing again and once again got the shadow effect. Do LOVE that. I masked and inked the circles using two tones of Distress. Went with a bday sentiment in same Amuse ink.
The card is white. Looks blue here, eh? I'm trying my hand at PhotoScape editor. Great free tool, but seems when I upload the pics to my blog, they come out blue-r than they were in the editor. Hmmmm....
Also entering Simon Says Stamp challenge to Stamp It cuz I did.
Thanks so much for looking!
