CASEing Linda

Hi everyone.  Today I'm CASEing my friend Linda (Lin's Craft Corner).  I was just blown away with this GORGEOUS card that she made.  I have never done a whole card front with emboss resist ... I just love how it turned out.

I recently got another stamp set from AliExpress.  Here's the link.  The set of 17 stamps was only $2.75 US.  Great deal.  You just have to be patient as some of the orders take months to arrive. :)

The images were randomly stamped in Versamark, then heat embossed in white. Four colours of DOX inks were sponged over top.  I misted with water to create a little bit of texture.

The die-cut "happy" was gifted to me by my dear friend, Barb.  It was adhered just above the white embossed black banner.  The finishing touch was to add three raindrops for some shine.

Fun card to make.  Thanks so much Linda for the awesome inspiration!!

  22. I have never done a whole card front with emboss resist either, and I love how it turned out with these sweet flowers and leaves! Great idea to add texture with your mister and your raindrops are the perfect touch! I also love the contrast you created with the white sentiment...such a striking effect! Another beautiful card, Loll!
