Coffee Lover's Blog Hop: Project 2

Welcome to the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop: Fall Edition



Back with another project for the hop.
I was inspired by the earth tones of fall.
 
This card features a distress inking and embossing technique
explained HERE by Jennifer McGuire.
I used Vintage Photo and Antique Linen inks and Perfect Pearls.

I cut the "thanks" die several times and covered it with Hero Arts Ombre


 
Up Close.  Hard to see, but the inked area has a beautiful sheen to it.
 
 
 
 
Other supplies:
"thanks" die by LYB
Brown ink on dye by HA (ombre *thanks Amy*)
sentiment by Fiskars
embossing folder

Thanks for visiting.
I am giving away one $5 gift card to Starbucks.
Please follow my blog (no emails are sent), visit and
comment on THIS post for a chance to win.
Winner will be announced there on Sunday, October 4.


ENJOY the hop!
-Kelly
