Hello! Thanks for stopping by!......I have been using some of my latest L Letterpress creations again. Decided not to use any ink for this one for a change. The embossed image is quite deep, however I just cant get it to show up to well with my photo taking skills! The second pic is about as best as I can get. I inked up the sentiment plate on this one with Versafine Ink in Onyx Black. I think it came out really well. I have used ink pads on quite a few of the press plates and up to now I have been pleased with the outcome, although I do prefer the actual Printing ink look. I used a Nestabilities die to cut & emboss out the Damask pattern. And just finished with some pale blue pearls and silver peel off's on the corners. Plain & simple yet surprisingly Elegant in it's outcome! Could be a nice look for a wedding invite.
Hope you all have a great day what is officially the Longest Day of the year (well here in the UK anyway)
Summer Solstice Bright Blessings for a fine sun & fun filled day!

Hi there Lavinia, I love your card, embossing is one of the reasons I started card making. There is nothing quite like an embossed image on plain white heavy duty card, really classy:) xx
