It's my very first Waltzingmouse Friends Blog Waltz from my brand-new blog! So cool to finally participate as a blogger. For this occasion I have made a special card, from the Irish Blessings set:
This image was colored entirely with embossing powders, using the Stampendous Scenic Selections embossing powder kit, which consists of 14 small jars of various colors of finely powdered embossing powders. I stamped the image in black ink on white card stock, then stamped all over with Versamark ink. I used a tiny spatula to tap embossing powder of various colors in (hopefully) the right places to give the whole image the look of an enameled painting. Some of the colors were layered for shading. When it was done, I stamped the original image over the top with Stazon Jet Black. The card was given to my friend Jan, whose birthday is March 17, and of course she loves everything Irish. She was thrilled with the card, so it was worth the effort.
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out the next waltz partner!
PS: apologies for the strange colors and designs of this post background--I'm still fine-tuning the design.
