I paper pieced the images to use as an accent to the top of my page..
then taking some of the 12 x 12 papers and layering them on top of each other for a layered look.


 The flowers from Petaloo added the perfect accent for these papers..
 I just love the blues and yellows.



 You can see the wonderful layers in this close up.. and that cross word paper is my
favourite.. I used the sticker letters and words to add my title .

For today's project, I decided to use an embossing resist technique and both the Hampton Art Cling Stamps, and ColorBox Dye Inks. I started with a plain white piece of cardstock, then wiped the cardstock with a used dryer sheet. This helps the embossing powder to only stick to the areas that I want it to. I took my Hampton Art Cling Stamps and some Versamark, stamping first my sentiment (Footloose), then the flower images (Grateful Heart) repeatedly. I then used clear embossing powder, and heat embossed the images.
Now comes the fun part! Using any of the ColorBox Archival Dye Inkpads, mix up a few colors by taking a sponge or other porous material to dab, swirl and blend colors. On this card, I used a combination of Gooseberry, Dark Cherry and Frosted Plum. After I felt that I had mixed the colors to the tones I liked, I used a damp cloth to rub off the inks from the embossed areas. Don't rub too hard, or you may take some of the paper with you.

Once it was completely dry, I cut some chipboard to make the embossed section more dimensional, added a contrasting May Arts ribbon, and layered my newly designed sentiment on some of the papers from the Remembrance Collection.
