This week over at the Cuttlebugspot we are having a blog hop! Nilda asked us to post a card or project on our blogs showcasing a technique such as inking/sanding/double embossing.
I chose sanding as I have yet to try one of the many c'ordinations papers I have acquired and not yet used! The whitewash c'ordinations sanded so nicely.
For my card I used the gorgeous new Owl CB embossing folder. I also used the music CB folder and I found that if after embossing it was better to open the folder and leave the paper in whilst sanding. That way the embossing doesn't flatten whilst sanding it. I added some blue satin ribbon from my stash and coloured some silver peeloffs black wit a permanent felt pen for Happy Birthdays and musical notes. I gave my Owl blue crystal eyes and decided to call him Owl' Blue Eyes(you know like Frank Sinatra was called Ol' Blue Eyes. I think I'm showing my age here lol!) hence the sentiment which is computer generated layered and pop dotted. The card is a landscape card and opens from the side.
