Don't forget to visit AfterHoursStamper on Facebook ("like" the page so that the updates land on your wall), I am linking to a "featured" blog each day, as well as sales and other cool things I find online : )
Here is the card I made:
The image was stamped on 140lb watercolor paper with black VersaMark ink, then I embossed with clear embossing powder. Distress Ink was used to color the image, the rope, bow, and hair bows were highlighted with TonerTex foil. I also used some Viva Decor pens to make the "colored pearls" in the corners of the card.
Now onto a TON of links for new products debuting at the 2011 Winter CHA. I have been clicking and saving links all weekend, some of the new products will just knock your socks off, and I need to make more cards to use up the paper I have so I can buy some of the new paper that is coming out this year. Here we go:
