While browsing through some blogs this afternoon I came across this super post/tutorial over at the Kraft journal and thought I'd give it a go. I have some Stampin' up papers and stamps which haven't really been used that much and knew they'd look fab with this technique so out they came.
After assembling the "quilted" panel I swiped my versamark ink pad across the edges added some bronze EP and heat embossed. I embossed the center flower motif the same and also the border along the bottom - the bronze embossing looks great I love it :) I embossed the "thanks so much" sentiment in white to make it "pop". The thin ribbon just added the finishing touch I wanted and it's done !
Here's a (slightly wonky) closer look at that panel
What a fantastic way to use up scraps of paper - I will def' be playing more with this technique - thanks to Lynn over at The Kraft journal for the amazing inspiration & sketch x
