MIM & OWH Sunday Sketch

Greetings!  This weeks Make It Monday challenge over at PTI is using heat embossing.  I love Dawn's card she made as an example.   I also used this weeks Sunday Sketch from OWH

Here's my card:
 I used heat embossing 2 different ways.  First I stamped the Polka Dot Basics in VersaMark and used clear EP.  Just as Dawns said int he video, it makes the paper darker and will always match!

The other heat embossing technique I used was to heat emboss the chair outline stamp.  This makes it SO much easier to color because there is a ridge instead of just a stamped line.  Much easier to stay inside the lines that way!

For the chair legs I used the Dark Chocolate Copic trio and for the chair itself I used the Ocean Tides Copic trio.  I made lines with eh colorless blender to give it a little pattern

Thanks for stopping by!!

  1. I love the couch, very nice card.

  2. Fabulous! Love the coloring on the couch!

  3. Cute card-I need to remember cards like this to send to friends I haven't talked with in a while!

  4. Adorable card. I thought about getting a set of "chairs" stamps but I couldn't figure out what I'd do with them - now I wish I had!! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  5. Lovely card and I love the tip to use the colourless blender to get the stripes.

  6. Great monochromatic card with very clever use of the embossing powder and colorless blender. Well done!
