The colors here are Chocolate Chip and Brocade Blue, using the En Francais background stamp and the Baroque Motifs swirl. The monogram is using the retired Letterpress alphabet set. Here are close-ups:
And as if that weren't enough for you, here's one that IS my design... I just ordered this set - I've been wanting to for a long time and finally broke down and did it. It arrived this afternoon - too late for me to make a sample before tonight's workshop, but after I did the one above, I played around and made these two:
These use the gorgeous Blossoms Abound set (why didn't I order this one a long time ago??!) along with the Print Pattern background. The colors for the one on the right are Rose Red, Regal Rose, Old Olive, and Certainly Celery. The one on the left uses Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Always Artichoke, and Mellow Moss. Close-ups:
Oh, what fun, what fun! And what FABULOUS gifts these make! I only charge $7.50 per set of 4, so not only is it a FABULOUS gift, it's an incredibly AFFORDABLE one at that!
Monday night's workshop is full (over-full, actually!), but if you are here in the local DFW area and are interested in attending one of these workshops, please contact me so I can add another date to the calendar. And forward this link on to a friend so they can come with you!
Thanks, ladies, for a fun evening! (don't I just have the BEST job ever?!)
EDITED TO ADD: I always receive questions about how these are made, and this time my "oven" comment apparently threw some of you... so here's the basic idea: Use CRAFT inks, coat them with clear embossing powder, and then bake at 350 for around 5-7 minutes or until all the powder is set. Hope that helps!
