The embossing pen goes on blue so you can see what you are doing.
Heat embossing them completely did mean I didn't need to mask them for the inking bit. Started off with DI Tumbled Glass.
Then I used the Water Droplets stamp again- I love this stamp, can you tell-in DI Salty Ocean. I also love this colour- so bright and vibrant.
A quick wipe over with kitchen towel removed any stray ink from the Ladybirds.
Now for the un-embossed strip- this meant masking off the Ladybirds.
Again, I stamp one on the top post-it, peel off half a dozen post-its together, then cut out a whole bunch in one go.
Being small images, they pretty much fit entirely on the glue strip.
First inking was Shabby Shutters DI, with a colour duster brush. Followed by Mowed Lawn, and finally Peeled Paint.
Then the Water droplets stamp again, in Mowed Lawn. Love how it works as a tone-on-tone stamp.
The Ladybirds un-masked!
I coloured the Ladybirds this time with Distress Marker Festive Berries.
Mounted, and the greeting stamped in Versafine Majestic Blue.
This one was stamped in Versafine Olympia Green.
