Blues and Green

Hey there!

Back here after a break! So what’s new eh? 🙂 Well, quite a bit is new at my end. Learnt a new technique in this time – heat embossing! 🙂 Ya ya…me a slow coach! Been fascinated with this technique for a while now and even bought my embossing powders six months back! 🙂 And my dear friend, Priya Venkat, was nice to lend me her heat gun, also six months back! Ok ok….getting to the point…I finally gave it a try and made my first card with it! Yay! 🙂

Playing crafty after quite a while and feels good to link to two challenges today – CAS-ual Fridays – CFC63 and playing iSpy Sketches ISSC26 for the first time – am a sucker for sketch challenges and a huge fan of Therese Calvird who is their GD this week!

I loved the simple sketch and that gave many options for the panel. I am sure I will use this again! 🙂 I kept the main focus on the panel and so used my embossed panel for it. Wanna see? 🙂

Used white embossing powder for the very trendy hexagon stamp from Paper Smooches, fussy cut and distressed, with a navy mat and twine. Sentiment from PTI Flower Fusion 9. A simple card but very happy to be back in the crafty zone! 🙂

Thanks for peeking in! Hope to drool over more projects from now on! Have a baking post coming up too! 🙂
