Hit Refresh...

I had some fun participating in some more Splitcoaststampers challenges again this week.  I combined 3 this week:  Try a new technique ~ Embedding, Clean and Simple ~ Dry Embossing, and Color Combination ~ Blue Saffron Sand

I colored one of Power Poppy's new images from the Springtime Love set to fit the color challenge.  Isn't it just charming?  For the embedded shape, I framed it with a diecut rectangle with a scalloped border and embedded it in an embossed base to meet the dry embossing requirement for the CAS challenge.  Lastly, I added a couple of sweet little diecut hearts that I inked with Antique Linen and Tumbled Glass Ranger Distress Ink.  The little tag was diecut using Framed Tags One from Spellbinders, and the sentiments are from the Power Poppy set called Good Thinking: Renewal.

It all was fairly easy.  The only part that took any time was the coloring.  I tend to use a lot of Copics...*grin*

Copics: Y38, Y35, Y23, Y21, BG15, BG13, BG11, BG02, BG0000, YG99, YG95, YG93, YG91, YG67, YG63, YG03, YG21, E34, E33, E31, EOO

took me a while to understand what I was reading for the sentiment - hit refresh - that's a super phrase - I like it with the pretty flowers

This is just as sweet as can be, Tosh! I love the embedded look (a technique I have not tried but will now be going on the "list"). I can always spot one of your beauties right away....you have such a classic, shabby elegance....is that a theme? LOL! Anyways, I so admire what you are able to do with ink and paper, what a talent! :)
