Because I care ...

Hi Everyone

Today I'm using the lovely "Because I Care" Hostess Level 1 stamp and the emboss resist technique. I started by stamping the large flower with Versamark ink. then sprinkled with Stampin' Emboss powder (white) before heating with a heat gun (heat embossing technique). Once this had dried, I used my daubers with the Stampin' Pastels to go over the stamped image. It's a long time since I've used my Stampin' Pastels and I'd almost forgotten how versatile they are! It's a lovely simple card but very effective and would make a perfect sympathy card.

Bye 'till next time!
