I am trying to step outside my comfort zone and create more artsy cards instead of my usual cutesy. I was inspired by a card made by Michelle Zindorf. Her cards are works of art. I started with soft sky cardstock and stamped the images in versamark and then classic chocolate chip. Then I embossed with clear EP. The swirl was stamped in versamark and then classic soft sky and embossed with clear EP. I learned from Michelle that when you layer embossed images you start with the image that is the outermost and the one in the background is stamped & embossed last. I sponged chocolate chip around the edges (if I did this again I would use less cc sponging), layered the center piece on cc, ticket punched, added brads and put dimensionals under it.
