UGH! Sorry if you have been looking for this. Our cable was out last night and they had to come this morning and do a couple of things outside, so my apologies.
On with the show..
It's technique week at Hand Stamped Sentiments and one I love and use often... Inked Emboss Folders.
So I was stuck for a bit because I can't emboss an entire 12 X 12...but then I decided to use the technique in a detail of my page. Truth is I love the Stripes folder in creating a checkered pattern, simply turn it 90 degrees and ink again. I went looking for a photo that I have of the girls in plaid shirts, I know it's sad that I recall photos I have, but then found this 5X7 of Kendall in her little Jessie swimsuit that was plaid. Take a look at the final product:
All of my hearts on the bottom use this inked technique. I first inked the paper than punched the hearts. To balance all the letters, I stuck included a piece of First Edition DSP, if you don't have this paper shame on you! Teasing, but I really love adding this. Some stitching on the bottom and done!
