The Road Less Traveled

I made this for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoaststampers where we were to make a selection from the Thyme website.  I chose the Blue Lotus candle and box.



I stamped the Rubbernecker leaf image with versamark and clear embossed it on glossy cs. I wrapped a rubberband around my brayer and inked it up with Tempting Turquoise to create the darker-inked distressed stripes at the top of my image panel. I then sponged So Saffron and Tempting Turquoise over the entire piece of cardstock and wiped over the leaf image with a paper towel to reveal the white leaves (emboss resist).   I dry embossed my vellum.  Since I had to run it through twice to cover the entire 5x5" piece, the vellum cracked in places, but I like the effect it gave.  I just received my SU two-step bird punch and love it!

I hope you're having a great Saturday!
