Weekend Sketch Challenge # 45

This is my creation of of Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I managed to make this card on Friday, but am only able to upload it today. This weekend was quite busy: Friday night we went to a hockey game with some friends. I haven't been to one in years. It was quite fun, I have to admit. Saturday night we had some friends over for dinner and Sunday Byron's mom came for part of the afternoon and supper.

I learned something new that other day: Embossing with VersaMark & Dye Inks. I found a new blog with some great hints and techniques. It is called Kiyomi Krafts. She has a great tip for embossing in a colour if you don't have pigments inks or coloured embossing powders. All you need is your dye ink or Classic ink (SU), VersaMark and Clear Embossing Powder.

1) Ink up your stamp with VersaMark or any other clear embossing ink.
2) Ink your stamp with the dye ink of your choice.
3) Stamp on your card stock and emboss. That's it!
I tried this technique on the Ruby Red strip. It worked!!
