TSSC 14 - Dry Embossed Wash

My entry for the Technostamper Sketch Challenge uses the Dry Embossed Wash Technique from the December 2007 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I loved the birds on this folder and thought that the bird from Stampin' Up!'s Always stamp set would be perfect with it. I am pleased with the card! The word Celebrate is from a great Impression Obsession set I have that has tons of words on it.


I wonder if I can ever make a TSSC without flipping it? I flipped the original sketch again this week. You see, I wanted to use a new Cuttlebug embossing folder with a bird on it, and the only way I could do it and have it look right was to turn the sketch.


This is the original sketch. Am I close enough?

Looks great to me! I love those backgrounds -- I can't find the dot one anywhere. Your card is super fun with all the textures -- and it even has a technique this week! Thanks for playing Pat.

Oh,oh,oh! How beautiful this card is! Now I NEED both of those folders and that stamp set. I have been contemplating buying all of them and your card just pushed me over the edge. How do you manage to get such a complete coverage of ink on the bold bird stamp?
