As mentioned recently I'm finding that to make the most of some of my larger dies and indeed larger stamps, I need to make some bigger cards - this one is A5 in size which I think showcases the elements to better advantage than when they are cramped into a smaller layout. The image was stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured with distress markers using a paintbrush and water. The small embossed piece was produced by inking the embossing folder with Versamark ink before putting it through the Big Shot, then sprinkled with embossing powder and heating - this effect varies according to which side of the folder is inked, the type of card and the type of powder so endless possibilities.
