PCC #134 & a fun technique

Hi Everyone!

I don't know about where you are but today was a BEAUTIFUL day!! 

And this week's PaperCrafters Corner challenge was also beautiful!
Are you playing?

I started out wanting to use the flowers as inspiration but I kept being drawn to the clothes. 

I stole hubby's foil tape a long time ago but never used it. Until now. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and colored the roses with my Spectrum Noir markers. I also used them on the stamp and sentiment mat. 

I really love how this card turned out so I made 2 more.

For this card I colored the foil with the markers the I embossed it using a Spellbinders Impressabilities. It's kind of like a metal stencil. After embossing, without removing the impressability,  I took a cotton ball and a little rubbing alcohol to remove the visible color. I love the end result. 

I did the same thing with the Spellbinders butterfly die cuts. I covered two scraps of cardstock. One I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. The second one I colored with purple Spectrum Noirs. I then used the rubbing alcohol to blend the color. Once the Spellbinders butterflies were cut and embossed I again used an alcohol cotton ball to remove the color. It's finished with a Unity sentiment 'inked' with the marker. 

I finally finished the afghan I was making for my daughter from another mother. 

I already know she loves it since I posted it on Instagram. 

And, finally, thank's to my daughter I have a new addiction.

These are called Tsum Tsums. They're packages in mystery bags and you don't know what character you get......unless you can guess by feeling them. ;)

Whew! That's it for me. Dinner, made by my son, is almost ready.
