Chocolate sage

This is a photo of one of the swaps I made for field training, had I thought it through properly I would have chosen something quicker to make but this is me I thought about it while I was doing it. I had to make 20+ card fronts like this ( although I didn't share my gorgeous buttons with everyone i couldn't bare to be parted from them).

I used the emboss resist technique on on the top half of the card, the card stock base was sage shadow and i used chocolate chip with a sponge dauber to add the colour.
I used my markers to colour the stamps and a sponge dauber to add the colour to the scallop edge. The stamp set is Fresh Cuts from the mini catalogue. I also used the 5 petal flower and scallop edge punches.

EDITED TO SAY:- We all had a really great time!! loved seeing everyone again and meeting some new demonstrators that were there!! thanks for all the great swaps ladies and thanks to my down line Rosina and also to Debbie for keeping company on the journey :)

Thanks for looking!

This is beautiful! And I know what you mean -- when I decide on a swap card to make plenty of, I end up making something very involved for duplication. But at least I end up very proud:D
