Dynamic Duos and Retro Sketch Challenges


  The card I made today was again a lot of fun to make, I seem to be in the zone!!!  The first thing I did was stamp the script on some white cardstock, then I stamped my image over top of that using versamark. Then I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder { I think I might have heated it to much because the image isn’t as white as I would have liked 😦 }.   After that I sponged it with some memento ink called Bamboo Leaves.   I can tell you for certain I will be doing this again!  I love this technique and I need to get better at it!!!   The dragon flies were made with my Cricut!  The sentiment is from Stamp TV.

I am entering this card in 2 fabulous blogs…..Retro Sketches and Dynamic Duos!

Thanks as always for stopping by,
