Make It Monday #291

Today, I have a card to share for this week's
Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Emboss Resist Shadow Sentiments.

I've been invited to the wedding shower for the daughter of a friend of mine
next weekend, so I decided to make a card for it.
I have some very cute wrapping paper with bicycles on it,
so I made a coordinating card using Pedal Pusher.


I made a mistake in my technique though...
Instead of stamping my sentiment (from PTI's Wet Paint III) in a black ink
and then a second time in versamark, like Ashley suggested,
I used versafine black ink.
But I had a hard time getting my stamp completely clean after that,
and, as a result, my shadow is a little grey.


I stamped the wheels in versafine onyx black and heat embossed them in clear.

Thanks for looking!

Lovely idea to co-ordinate the wrapping paper with a unique and personal card. Such pretty colours and thank you for the tip about the stamping and hope your stamp recovers!
