All the 3's

I decided I wanted to do something different so thought I'd have a play with some glossy card and dye inks and do some resist embossing. Normally I would do white or clear ink with white or clear embossing powder but decided I would try with black for a change.




I used some darkroom stamps that I have had ages and never inked up and stamped them in 3's on white glossy card and embossed with clear embossing powder.

I used some of my favourite coloured dye inks and wiped across the card 3 times once with each colour,then buffed with a tissue.I love how the card shines.



I cut the card into 3 all the same size ,trimming top and bottom. I added them to a white base card and added a simple black happy birthday peel-off. I think it will make a fab gents card.
