May God Bless You


I think I may have made this for a challenge. I think. Maybe. But I can't remember. I'm not the most organized person around. I could have just made this for no reason at all. I guess we'll never really know, will we?

The sentiment is from A Chemistry With Paper's Spiritual Sentiments set. I think ACWP has my favorite sentiments. And GinaK's Tag Lines is pretty indispensable as well.

I can't quit using Bazzil Bling! This is Emerald City, and it pretty much looks beautiful with every image from Crafty Secret's Birds and Botanicals booklet. I pressed the image into my VersaMark pad and covered it in Clear ep. I used detail, and only one coat, so it's still pretty thin. You can get different effects depending on the type of ep you use. I have detail, regular and UTEE, all of which I use regularly. If I could only choose one, I'd stick with detail. It can do what the others do, with enough layers, but the others can't do what it does. If you are new to embossing powder, start with detail, even if it is a little more expensive. Another ep hint: I never use black. It's messy. I always stamp in VersaFine Onyx and emboss in SU! Crystal Clear Detail.

That is so pretty. I have not embossed lately; but now that I am done organizing my craft stuff...I can actually find things and use it! Good luck on moving this summer. I guess that means you have to clean out your classroom too...ugh.
