Happy Tuesday everyone!
In the last few days some people have left some really nice comments about my work with embossing paste and stencils and some have said they've never used this technique. Some friends of mine have a blog where techniques are featured and, on checking, I found this tutorial here, which you might want to check out.
It's very quiet in cyber space today, where is everyone? I assume you are all either at work or enjoying nicer weather than we have here!!!
One of my friends is off to New York very (VERY) soon, with her daughter, it's their first time and I'm hoping they will LOVE IT. I know they have tickets to a Broadway show and I've suggested that, should they feel the urge to see a second, they should try calling at the theatre of their choice on the day and see what tickets have been released - they CAN be as much as 50% discounted. Our last trip saw us seeing two shows for the price of one!!! We thoroughly enjoyed Curtains and Young Frankenstein - no honestly!
This will be my third, and last (for the week), entry for the "EMBOSSED" challenge over on Simply Less Is More and I've gone with my personal nemesis ...... heat embossing directly on to the base card. Previously it's always warped the card so I've not done this in a while, preferring to heat emboss on thick card and then mat and layer! The LIM challenges are proving to be a very popular challenge, set weekly, with over 130 entries posted already this week!,so if you fancy having a go then you have until Friday evening ........... start your embossing engines!!!
Since my pal is off to New York I trawled the internet for "FREE" images of the New York Skyline to make this insert . . . which looks better in real life - trust me!
Happy Tuesday - have a good one!
