MEMORIES


Good Morning!
We have rain coming and it's suppose to last all day!
Hubby off to footsie..Me! I can do what I want...
So..Coffee with a friend and then back home for Crafting! 



Memories is what I've called it lol..Cause it's a looooooong time since I went tree climbing..
Now this little cutie lives at Sassy Cheryl's Shop and she's called  Winter Morning Social
Do any of you have the same trouble as me? I always 'spot' another Digi I NEED when I when I'm uploading what the image is called lol...
Coloured with a 4H Pencil!! Now this is a first for me...When I'd done it! I wasn't sure if it would start to come off...Sooo I've used VersaMark stamp pad/Clear Embossing Powder on the image a few times and then popped it into the freezer for 5 minutes {Hubby tend to just look! and say nothing lol} I've given it the 'old' feeling with using Vintage Photo over it...Papers/Embellishments from stash...
Memory Box/Marieanne/Magnolia dies used..A Musical rubber stamp over the flower..X-Cut Butterfly punch.

The image is beautifully colored in shades of grey, and I do like the effect of the frozen embossing powder with a coat of ink! I like that you've kept two different shades of grey and pink accents, it really works well with a card and theme down the memory lane... Really cute!

Linda Compton said...

Our poor husbands. We do tend to drive them crazy with out crafting don't we? This technique looks fabulous. Did you set the embossing powder with a heat gun or just freeze it? The results are perfect for a black and white photo challenge. Thanks for joining us at Sassy Cheryl's again and thanks for sharing your technique too. Hugs, Linda
