Something else I've been eyeing up for a long time was the embossing paste!! Super excited about that. This was the first time playing with it, I used the white, and OMG, so much you can do with this stuff. I've been seeing it everywhere in blogland. I picked up some clear too, I want to use it on every card :) I added some Martha Stewart glitter while it was still wet and it clings great!! This was my first time colouring black hair too, and I must say the copics were very forgiving, I went over it a few times and finally settled on the way it is, I'm satisfied.
The challenge at Simon's Monday Challenge Blog is 'The Artsy Stamp'. I think this is soooo 'Artsy'! I wanted to keep the card simple and clean so that the image stayed the focus of the card. For the inside though, I added a bit of We R Memory Keepers Chalkboard paper to match the envelope I made, just so it all ties in together. Some more encouraging words inside from Stampin Up's Feel Goods stamp set.
