Pretending to be Laura Fadora - Crafts 4 Eternity

Hi friends - welcome back to another fun recipe at Crafts 4 Eternity where we want to see YOUR creations with numbers! Fun, huh?

One lucky participant will win 3 free downloads from Stamping All Day, so take some time and play along.

I made a birthday card for our daughter's best friend and I tried to intimidate Laura Bassen a/k/a Laura Fadora, you can see her sample HERE. I need to learn to embrace more white space.
From Millan.Net
But I still like how it turned out. I used lots of distress inks: Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Old Paper, Evergreen Bough to create the water color background; the image and sentiment from Verve Visual were embossed with clear embossing powder using black VersaFine ink.



As you can see, my number is on the inside. :D The numbers are white and glittery but I colored them with Copics.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you can join the fun! Take care!

Hugs,

Very nice! I like the folded edges and your embossing turned out great. Cool papers, too.
