Hello my darling friends. Mondays coming so fast. This week at the Paper Makeup Stamps Digi Makeover challenge is super easy theme: Anything Goes. So you don't have any excuse not to participate :) Well, almost any excuse. You have to use a digi image on your project.
I really love cards with embossed shadow stamped images. This technique is only reason why I love rubber stamps. But it is possible to make it with digi stamps too. I used Dandy Wishes digi set. First I changed black image to light green. Then I made another copy on top of it, colored it white and sifted a bit down and left. All it needs then was "inking" of the background to make the white image show better. For that I made a new layer below the digis and colored the background with soft brush. I think you need some kind of photo editing program for this technique. I used PhotoShop. After printing it looks like faux white embossed image. The green was a bit too light so I took a step forward. I colored the white image with Versamark pen and covered it with clear embossing powder. After heat setting it I took light green ink and added some more color to the background. Sadly the embossing is not seen on the photo but it looks reaslly cool.
The blue button was dark gray at first. I wanted to cover it with light blue embossing powder but the button melted while I was heating it. Although the EP looked really good on it :) Luckily I had one more button. I tried to color it with Promarker but it wasn't successful, button was to dark and the grey showed through too much under the blue. Then I took acrylic paint. Success! This color matches perfectly with card base. It's not waterproof color but hopefully no one don't stick my card under the water.
I should have use different pattern papers. It has too much green on it. But I had so much fun to make this card :)
