Freshly Made Sketches # 101

Hello Everyone,

I'm playing along with this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge by Linda

Today I'm using Positively Chevron Background stamp with the Tie-dyed Embossed technique, Chalk Talk Bundle and Papillon Potpourri butterfly and matching Bitty Butterfly punch.   Wow, what a mouthful.
Cardstock is Basic Black, Whisper White, Pool Party and Melon Mambo.  Embossing powders are Pool Party, Melon Mambo and my Frosty mix of 50/50 Heat & Stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds.

Here is my card

This background technique was shared with our team by Bec Ross, another Paper Angel from Brisbane who used this on her Incentive trip swaps to Utah.  It's essentially adding a number of different coloured embossing powders, one at a time and tipped off over a versamarked image then heat embossed.  Pretty cool, huh?

The Happy Big Day tag was embossed with the leftover Pool Party embossing powder.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see my card.  Have a great day.


  1. WOW!! This is wonderful. I love the design and such fabulous colours

  2. I've never seen that tie-dyed embossed look before but I love it! The multi-colored chevrons look fantastic! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  3. This is so striking Carolyn - the colours you've used are so trendy as is the chevron background! Love it! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
