i wanted to do a card project last Saturday for hubby but work kept me at the computer. i was itching to put use the oh, so lovely new Prima paper kits that came in at my store, Simply Scrappy, couple of weeks back. by the end of the day, i was a bit freer so i thought i'd check out my pics on Adobe Elements for a possible weekend LO as well. I saw this picture of Erwin and Raj and thought I'd tweak it a bit on Photoshop. it seemed to call out for a drama quote so i searched for one and found it. by the time I was done, the picture looked like this and was practically calling out to be scrapped already so i printed it out on my trusty Epson. hmm, maybe an father's day LO was just as good as a card. i didn't quite finish on saturday evening due to some glittering snags i hit. i finally ditched glitter and did embossing, again, ala-Iris style, and finished on Sunday. Still in time for father's day.
i remember asking Iris a few months back how she did her favorite script stamping that seemed to go on to the edge of the page. she told me how and what stamp it was (Hero Arts Old French Manuscript) so i set about to searching for it and found it. i was finally able to test drive it here. i often scrutinize idol Iris's techniques on her LOs and saw she does embossing on the patterned paper. lovely technique! this is what i did here. here is the embossing detail up close.
