Pedal Pusher

Hello, Crafters.
I wish you and your families a happy and blessed Easter.

Two of the features I've used on today's card were inspired by one card I received as a swap last Sunday and one that was part of the Show and Tell display.

I know I keep referring back to last Sunday's Team Training, but we really do get a lot out of the day.

First is Elaine Kerr's swap card I shared with you yesterday as well as a card that was on Show & Tell at last Sunday's training.

The feature I've picked out from Elaine's card is the dry embossing - please see photograph 5.

On Elaine's card, there are three vertical embossed line that run from top to bottom just to the right hand side of the coloured  Designer Series Paper. 

The feature I picked out from the Show & Tell card was the heat embossing on the Designer Series Paper - please see photograph 6.

Unfortunately I don't know who made this card so can't give credit where credit's due!

This isn't something I've ever tried before but I think it looks brilliant on the card shown here and couldn't wait to try it.

I will definitely be using these techniques again.

For my card, I've dry embossed a double frame around the image.

I love the look of it but it was a struggle to get the positioning correct - success came on my third attempt!

I started my card with a base of Whisper White Cardstock with a layer of Tempting Turquoise - I can't remember the last time I used this colour! - and a top layer of Whisper white.

This is the layer I dry embossed.

I also cut a piece of the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper (DSP) to go inside the embossed frame leaving a quarter inch gap all round.

I stamped the bicycle image from the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Pedal Pusher Stamp Set onto the DSP using Versamark.

Then I heat embossed it using the Black Embossing Powder.

I used Tempting Turquiose, Basic Grey, Smokey Slate and Crushed Curry Marker Pens to colour in the bicycle.

I added the two birds from the same stamp set.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Rose Wonder.

I used my Black Archival Ink but I think I should have re-inked it first!

That's about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy Easter and happy crafting!
