Embossing folders and Distress Markers

I am carrying on my official "testing" of all my embossing folders. It's a tough job, but someones gotta do it!

For the ATC's this time, I embossed on watercolour card, then roughly followed the pattern with my Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress Markers. I like using them for this as you can be specific as to where you put your colour. I then spritzed it heavily with water, and allowed the ink to bleed and then dry.

When my backgrounds were dry, I stuck them to my ATC and trimmed off the edges. Use the peeled paint distress markers to edge the card. I then embellished using our new and beautiful vintage looking lace, then I rummaged in my stash for flowers and gems.

Please take a look at the gallery, HERE for more pics, and if there are any of the goodies I have used that you recon you need, please click on the relevant item:

I know the feeling Amanda. If I'm having blocks I do something like sort my scrap card out, do random die cuts. Something that requires no thinking. Then eventually I'll want to do something or try something - or see something that really inspires me. Frustrating isn't it! Backgrounds are good as well, just mess and don't actually try and put anything together!!

Have a lovely weekend, hope the blockage sorts itself out :) xx

Hi Leonie - I love what you have been doing with your embossing folders and markers. It looks really interesting and I think I will be having a go myself.

I have to make my 8 year old neighbour a birthday card next week and (like Amanda) I am soooo stuck for ideas. The trouble is I have so many stamps that is it difficult to choose one. I just keep looking at them - then ending up doing nothing.Think I will have to have a go at random playing and hope for the inspiration to come!
