Technique class sample

Happy Sunday everyone and what a beautiful summer, non-rainy day! I've been playing in my creation station today with my inks, embossing powders & big shot. I'm teaching an emboss resist technique in my class this month and this is the sample I've made. I'm in love with these butterflies cut with the Big Shot and the "Beautiful Butterflies" Bigz die. They are so versatile and when coupled with a bit of embossing & inking I think they come up a treat. Ready to place on a card or a scrapbook page. 

I've used Regal Rose & Daffodil Delight inks on the butterflies with Lucky Limeade c/stock (from the new In Colour range). The stamp is from the Elements of Style stamp set which is also one of my faves. I've also added a little extra by using the Lace Ribbon border punch. Here are the closies......

This is another emboss resist card I made using a brayer as well as the very pretty Pool Party ink & ribbon - another of the new In Colour range. The background stamp is the Medallion Stamp which I tend to use on a regular basis.

Besides preparing for classes, I've also been busy making wedding invitations for my daughter's friend. I'll post a pic of them next week hopefully. Hmmmm, may have to hold back on the challenges a little bit this month :( Naaahhh! I'm sure I can fit a few in somewhere.........surely!???
Thanks for dropping by :)
