I have not done any Blogging for a couple of weeks…..but I am back now! Oh and I have so so much to tell you about…
First up though – the challenge this week at Just Add Ink = Just Add Pearls.
A couple of weeks ago I was working on putting some class idea’s together and my sister Nadine shared a technique with me that I had not done before – so that became the basis for my Just Add Pearls Card.
The new technique is in the background of this card – where I used some wax paper that I embossed with the Big Shot and then laid it between 2 layers of glossy card – then ironed it. After that I rubbed it with ink – and this is the effect I got. I really liked it and found the more ink I added – the better it looked.
Also – really loved these colours together too – Wisteria Wonder, Rose Red, Always Artichoke.

Now – I enjoyed doing this technique so much that I made other cards with it too…….. here’s a Man one.
A word of warning to all those wanting to try this technique!! MAKE SURE YOU SET UP YOUR IRON PROPERLY – WITH PROTECTION FOR SURROUNDING SURFACES!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah – you guessed right – I had a moment…….not sure if it was a Blonde moment, Senior moment or plain old stupidity moment………but you guessed it……. I ironed on the carpet and wrecked both the carpet and my iron (not that I use it much – hee hee).
However – I then had to own up and tell Mr Neil that I had done it! And it’s not even in a spot I can hide with a mat – darn it!! Lucky for me he kinda laughed…….. although I was not laughing.
Anyway………………I can not finish this post without giving a big Whoop whoop for where I was last week!! Whoo hoooo Stampin Up Convention in Canberra – with about 450 other crazy SU lovers.
