Enjoy the Journey...

I am so excited to be here sharing this tag with you today and 
I'm so honored and thrilled to be on team Inspiration Emporium.
If you missed the announcement you can read all about it here.
Still pinching myself...and looking forward to getting to know all the other talented ladies!
Ink and Paint are truly my happy place and where I get lost in creating!
Honored and Giddy...that's how I feel, wink.
 First I stamped my image with Broken China Distress Ink. 
Cover the image with clear embossing powder.  
When removing excess embossing powder just tip it and dump on to scrap paper, don't flick..you will want it to have as much as possible.  
 After heat embossing (let it cool) blend on Broken China over the entire background.
Add bits of Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean to add some color variation. 
Because the clear embossing resists the ink, it will give you a nice resist, around the words while some parts of the words stay the Broken China coloration.  
I even love the places that had extra clear embossing powder 
(bottom left corner of below photo)
I also stamped Tim's Papillon butterflies and on a separate tag, 
added the same colors of Distress Inks and fussy cut them out. 





My posts will be every Friday from now on for Inspiration Emporium, I hope you will find some inspiration here along the way.  If you would like to find any of these supplies just click on the links below.
