Pretty Rusty? Not Quite!

Pretty Rusty? Not Quite!

Although… after a few days of no stamping I was starting to feel a little rusty! I wasn’t sure what to think of the color combination challenge on SCS today (CC228), but I’m pretty happy with the result. The sketch I used is Natasha’s Fall-To Layout 51.

I ran a piece of retired Not Quite Navy DSP through the Big Shot with the new embossing folder and sanded the raised images. The Simple Flower die-cut was lightly stroked with the white ink pad and embellished with a clear rhinestone. My favorite All Holidays sentiment was stamped with Craft ink on the Top Note die-cut and clear embossed.

Thanks for stopping by!

    The white ink pad really sets of the embossing so nicely!
