Another 2-for-1 challenge today as I'm entering the following card in ColourQ's and Mojo Monday's challenges.
|Supplies: Card Blank: Handy Hippo, Cardstock: SU Cherry Cobbler, Poppy Parade, So Saffron & Always Artichoke; Stamps: Penny Black image & Hero Arts sentiment; Ink: SU Poppy Parade, Memento Black; Copics: R17, R59, Y21, YG63, YG91; Other: Woodware flower punches, Nestabilties Standard Circles Large & Lacey Circles, EK Success fibres, Doodlebug bling|
When I saw Always Artichoke I immediately thought of frogs (weird, I know) so I dug out these Penny Black stamps and decided to practice a little colouring with my Copics. Once I had finished it and put it together I thought, "Darn it!! I should have embossed the Artichoke paper." (And maybe the Cherry Cobbler too...) I seem to be doing this a lot lately. Embossing has not been crossing my mind until the card is all put together and it is too late. Perhaps I need to line my embossing folders up on my desk so they're right in front of me and don't get forgotten! Or maybe I need something like this awesome sign made by Karen B to hang over my desk - only mine will say Emboss!
