Virginia Tech Hokies Doodle

I've been seeing a lot of doodles on Pinterest lately and have been amazed by many of the images.  I've also seen the term zentangle which is apparently  a more structured or organized doodle.  So I figured I'd give it a try.  I used a black gel marker and Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils.  Go Hokies!

Embossed Embossing Swap

For this month's technique swap I used versamark to highlight one of the embossed chevron rows and then applied clear embossing powder.  Then I  stamped the shell background using the By the Seashore set and covered the image with a piece of vellum to tone down the dark color.  The crab came from the same set and was cut out by hand.

Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2012 (August)

This month's tag involved using a cameo or silhouette type image with a frame.  I started with basic gray textured card stock and used a texture plate in my big shot to add a slightly raised grid pattern. I then embossed portions of the grid with black embossing powder. The silhouette and the frame were cut out of basic black cardstock with my silhouette. I then used several stampin' up! punches to create the flowers and the petals. I finished the card by sponging silver ink over the frame, the flowers and the rhinestones.

Technique #6 - Embossed Embossing

This month's technique involves embossing cardstock that has been textured with an embossing folder.  A brayer was used to apply the versmark to the raised areas of the textured pattern.  If you don't have a brayer you can carefully swipe the versamark over the raised areas before applying the clear embossing powder.
