Another scrappy accomplishment done a few weeks ago at the weekend crop!
I used the stamp set, Happy Thoughts, along with the NEW pigment inks.  I embossed the bird and sentiment in clear detail embossing powder.  I LOVE the new pigment inks for embossing.  For regular stamping, I'll admit, pigment inks are not my favorite - I'm way too impatient to wait on them to dry. (I know, I know, I could heat set it. . .)  For embossing though, these inks give GREAT color and they stamp beautifully! The small square size is really easy to work with too.

I really walked on the wild side when I stamped up this bird.  I stamped it in Lagoon ink first, and then dabbed the edges in Pacifica ink before embossing.  This DID leave a little Lagoon ink on my Pacifica pad, but not enough to matter to me, and I can probably just dab it off, if I take the minute to do it!   I LOVE the way the colors came together - it was totally worth the risk! 

I embossed the white cardstock with an embossing folder (not from CTMH - GASP!) and the baker's twine was the perfect finishing touch!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
xoxo Laura,
