Inspiration

Am I the only one who spends hours pinning pretty projects on Pinterest... but then never actually gets around to doing anything with those pinned ideas? :)
 
Well, no more! :)
 
I recently pinned this simple but striking card by Marion Vagg and have been dying to have a go at the technique (basically, stamping and embossing an image with white embossing powder on coloured card and outlining/shading the stamped image with a toning coloured pen).
 
I wanted to make a thank you card for some friends who invited us to visit their home on our long drive home from our holiday last weekend so decided this was the perfect opportunity:
 
 
I love this technique. The white embossing against an intense cardstock colour is so striking and the addition of the shading makes the image pop even more.
 
 
I might even get around to trying out some more of the projects I've pinned. :)

Guilty as charged, but this weekend we're going to make an effort to actually make one of our pinned projects. Your card is lovely.
