The current challenge for the Everything Wendy Vecchi Group was double embossing, in line with Wendy's tutorials.
I started by inking up the heart stamp with two colours of Brilliance. Because Brilliance isn't a permanent ink, I immediately embossed with detail clear powder. Then used a versamark pen to fill in all the blank areas in the heart and embossed again with the clear powder.
I inked up the rest of the tag with distress ink, and then stamped the brick wall. The heart resisted the ink from the bricks, tho it looks like I missed wiping a little off, because when I added the gorgeous blue/gold embossing powder, a little bit did stick and then melted on the heart. Rats.
I flicked a bit of water over the distress to create freckles.
I love Wendy's 'Pillow Ticking' stamp - as a kid we had pillows with this lining! I love it even more now I realise I can use it to create a criss cross pattern! How great! Unfortunately, the two colours I chose are too similar, but it would be really cool with really different colours.
I coloured up the baker's twine with distress stain, and added a Hope tag from my stash...think it is an Idea-ology one. Finished off with the dotty ribbon through the hole!
