Hi There!

Thanks for taking the time to read my post. If you like this post, why not sign up to receive my posts via email to make sure you don't miss out?

I'm in a good groove at the moment, so Im inspired to play along with a few challenges. This one is called SIP (Stamp, Ink, Paper) and is a colour inspiration challenge.
With no image in my head to work from, I just went in the stamp room and here is the card i came up with;

Im really a fan of embossing at the moment. I used the emboss-resist technique and I love the effect that it creates. I haven't even noticed this COOL background stamp before, so it was perfect.

Im also a real fan of the really thin layers for the base of the card. Im yet to get it perfect (please don't look too close), but Im heading in the right direction.

I didn't want to cover too much of the background, so I thought that using Vellum would be appropriate. I tried stamping directly onto the vellum, but it didn't provide a solid enough so I decided to emboss in clear over black ink.

I also wanted the Basic Black to be a feature of the card without it looking too dark. So, I decided to use Black Shimmer Paper instead of just Basic Black cardstock. Embellishments I have been waiting for a project to use the Silver Cording Trim on - this worked out great. And, the staple was both useful and cool.
