trying to get mojo back

I haven't had much motivation to go stamp lately, but having gotten my recent stampin success magazine I wanted to try double embossing technique and play with my new blossom bouquet triple layer punch.  Having lost my mojo, I decided to do a sketch challenge.  I used this weeks sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers- sc333.

The double embossing technique is fun.

Quick tutorial:

step one:  run your paper or card stock through embossing folder and big shot

step two:  ink up embossed or raised image with versa mark and then dump on clear embossing powder on and heat.  (note to self make sure you clean out your embossing trays better- as I have flecks of glitter and black embossing powder mixed in)

Here is what it looks like close up:

Oh, Kathy, that turned out really pretty -- just might have to try this myself! TFS -- my mojo went astray too, but I'm blaming it on my son visiting after nearly 4 years of economic crisis preventing us from being able to see each other -- LOL!!! Enjoying his company!!!

Kathy I love the accidental mix in. Makes it look vintage in a way.Very nice card and I love the color.
