March Technique #2 = Emboss Resist
I thought this floral image from the beautiful new stamp set Live Your Dreams would be perfect for the emboss resist technique. And sure enough - it was! We brayered Groovy Guava over the embossed image. Then added a little sponging of Chocolate Chip ink on the flower buds to make them "pop" a little bit more. Didn't this turn out nice?
March Bonus Technique = Dyed Crystal Effects
This is so easy to do - just squeeze out a little Crystal Effects (CE) into a plastic container and stir in a drop or two of reinker (Groovy Guava used here). We used a toothpick to add the dyed CE to the groove in the flower ribbon slide (from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware). Such a great way to customize your embellishment to match your project!
