Hello my wonderful friends!
I can't believe January is already over! Craziness!
You know what else is totally crazy??? I haven't written a tutorial for Unity's FWF in waaaaay too long! I really wanted to for today, but it didn't quite get done... So I'll have to share that tutorial in just a bit, so stay tuned!
In the mean time, here's a fun, shabby card for today, using a technique I shared a while ago... HERE
I love the shabby look you get when you combine dry embossing, gesso/paint, and sand paper!
I know you can't really tell in the photo, but the letters are awesomely shimmery... To do that, simply stamp your image with embossing ink, then cover with Perfect Pearls. The mica powders are so fine, you won't lose any detail with your stamped image... it gives fabulous added interest without much effort!
Ok... I need to get busy with some Valentine Day projects! =)
