A little grey here in North Wales so it doesn't look like it will be hot like yesterday. Still must be grateful it is not raining.
I have been playing & practising with the embossing technique on Serif Craft Artist. I thought I had got the hang of it, then yesterday couldn't get it right but this morning - success again.
The base is a 5x5 card onto which I pulled in a pale pink background. Then using the small fairy & frame from one of CaroLines digi kits & adding the word "Fairies" I applied the embossing technique. As I said - with success. I then searched for a fairy image which I put in the centre of the frame. Now I need to be as successful with some scrapbook pages.
Then in true crafter form - I had to play with it a little more. I wanted to see what it would like if I gave the embossing a different finish or effect. This is what I did -
I really wanted to use a soft pink or green - two of the colours in the fairy image - but they were not in the options. There was a pale blue which would have picked up on the little flower- but I didn't like that finish. There is a slight purple/lilac tinge to her wings. It is quite amazing when you apply these finishes how the highlights on the embossing show up differently - more intense. I am still making up my mind whether I like it this way.
Thank you for visiting - please call again & perhaps leave a comment.
'Bye for now.
