SSC 191


I love the sketch challenges from Stamping 411. I have been wanting to try the 'faux pressed flower' technique since I first saw it a couple of months ago, however I had to wait til I had the square lattice embossing folder. This simple technique gives a great result for just the effort of a bit of cutting out.

Project Recipe

Ink: melon mambo, elegant eggplant and old olive
