My latest favorite technique: Embossing brass stencils on the diecut machine and coloring the image with ink pads. I love the air brush look. I've actually pulled stencils that were in my collection for at least 5 years! After I finished the card, I decided to add the Ribbon, you know, "Forget Me Not."
Embossing stencil by DreamWeavers, Nestibilities dies, SU Stamp pads, mini eyelets (unknown), SU Punch and sentiment, sheer green ribbon (unknown)
