Glossy Fresh Cuts

I got home late Sunday afternoon from a 4 day camping trip with my boys. What a great time we had!!

I made this card during a stamping retreat about 3 weeks ago with 3 of my wonderful friends, Mercy Kerin of Lord Have Mercy, Janet, and Donna. We had so much fun during those 3 days.

The main focal image is glossy paper stamped in black ink and embossed with black embossing powder. I then took 3 sponge daubers and wiped the ink from the inkpad across the paper. The is one of the easiest and prettiest techniques there is. If you are going to try this technique it looks much better if you emboss the stamped image with black instead of just stamping it only (thanks Mercy!!). The sentiment image is stamped twice in black, once on Riding Hood Red paper and once on Kiwi Kiss paper. I then cut the center of the Kiwi piece out and popped it with dimensionals on top of the Red piece. Then I added one of the new designer brads to the top left corner for "cuteness". It's cute, isn't it???
Have a great week and thanks for checking me out!!
