inspired by Belleek pottery

I’m playing along with today’s Technique Challenge at SCS  – inspired by Belleek pottery.  The techniques called for inking the inside of an  embossing folder with a light colored ink, then embossing the paper to get a dimensional bisque look.

So…..after several tries with light inks (the lightest I could find – which was not very light) I ended up using a grey ink and created this:

The background is done with Memento London Fog ink and a cuttlebug embossing folder.  I used Crane’s Lettra Letterpress paper because it dry  embossed so well.

  I stayed with the grey theme and stamped the image and sentiment, from Mark’s Finest Papers Love Remains set in the same ink and mounted it on grey cardstock.

The floral spray uses all Martha Stewart punches. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
