inks: Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake
Textured Impression embossing folder: Square Lattice
- Ink up medallion stamp in Crumb Cake
- Sponge the edges and the middle with Baja Breeze
- Stamp. As this was a big stamp, I had it upside down and pressed my cardstock on it. It's easier for positioning and handling purposes.
As the tones of the inks are fairly similar, I guess you can swap (1) and (2), i.e. ink with Baja Breeze first and sponge with Crumb Cake. It might be fun to add more colours as well...why stop at 2-tone.
a few more deets...
I intended to use a ribbon but the Marina Mist ribbon looked too dark so I went for the paper 'ribbon' and even stamped the sentiment on it. If you only ever buy one sentiment set, let it be Teeny Tiny Sentiments from Stampin Up; very handy and will see you through most (all?) occasions.
The idea came from Michelle Dyson who used River Rock and Basic Black combo on a square card.
Have a go and possibly link back here so I can see what you've done. Of course, you don't have to use the medallion stamp for this 2(or more)-tone stamping. And why stop at cards, do it on scrapbook and OTP projects as well. What combo would you do?
