Here's what I came up with:
|Layered images create a softer effect|
I've been wanting to use the little circle image from "Just Believe" for a while and I've also wanted to try this embossing technique as well. After stamping the image in VersaMark on Whisper White card stock, I embossed it using white embossing powder. Then I took a sponge, inked it with Poppy Parade and sponged over the embossed images...the places that aren't embossed take the ink. Be sure to wipe your image with a tissue afterwards to make the white "pop" again.
I used my Scallop Circle punch to punch out a backing in Pear Pizazz. Again, to distress the edges I misted them with water and "worked" the paper to curl and wear the paper.
I stamped my sentiment in Poppy Parade and then punched it out using my Modern Label punch. The edges are sponged using Poppy Parade as well.
