Joyeuses Pâques

Une carte faite pour le nouveau challenge du blog Impression ObsessionYour Favorite Technique Challenge
Pour cette carte j'ai utilisé ma technique favorite, à savoir l'embossage à chaud avec la poudre à embosser ultra fine noire de Ranger. Cette technique m'est chère, puisque c'est par elle que tout à commencé. Au tout début, quand je n'avais pas encore beaucoup de matériel, j'embossais au dessus de mon grille pain. 

J'ai embossé l'étampe Tapestry 2 de Impression Obsession (CC025).
Ceci combiné à d'autres techniques que j'aime bien comme l'aquarelle et l'utilisation des encres Distress de Ranger. Les mots ont étés imprimés.

For this card I used my favorite technique: heat embossing with Ranger's embossing powder ultra fine black. This technique is dear to me, since it is through it that all began. At first, when I had not a lot of material, I embossed over my toaster.This combined with other techniques that I like such as using watercolors or distress inks.

  1. Hi Rachel, Your border is perfect for your background stamp. I really like the way you sponged around your sentiment too!! A very pretty card! Thanks for playing and good luck in the drawing too!!

  2. Jolie carte ! Love the effect of the frame against the CAC background. Re toaster: I still use my paint stripping heat gun, not ideal as it blows more than required but adequate !

  3. thanks for stopping by and commenting! wow, the die cut borders in those colours next to the tapestry image are just so pretty and i love how you coloured the image.

  4. This is gorgeous! Thanks for your comment on my blog. :)

  5. lovely frames..You made me discover these "new" (for me) decorative labels eight...
    and the embossing technique... was a "revelation" for me too when I first tried...
    thanks for sharing

  6. Love this card! Perfect Easter and Spring-like card! You almost made it look like stained glass by embossing that background black...I have this background stamp too and will have to try this. Love the spellbinders you used as well. Thanks for sharing.
