Curtain Call Bling!


I hope this posts ok cos I've scheduled it way ahead!

Check out this week's colours:

And here's what I came up with (must have been on a bit of a Christmas in July kick!):

I don't have Marina Mist yet - bring on September!! So I went with Baja Breeze instead. I stamped the trees on Whisper White with Versamark and embossed with clear EP. I then inked up the swirl from Baroque Motifs with Versamark then Baja Breeze then stamped on the top right and embossed with clear EP as well. I then brayered over the whole piece first with Baja Breeze, and then Night of Navy at the bottom - how cool is this resist effect?? I kinda imagined the idea in my head but didn't know whether it would work or not and I'm so pleased with how it turned out! All credit should of course go to the amazing Michelle Zindorf for any brayering/resist ideas or techniques!!
