Expresso & Orange...A Classic Combination

Cupcake Inspiration 71

An oldie, but a goodie technique that is making a comeback: emboss resist!

The colors were inspired by Cupcake Inspirations Challenge and the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketches.

I love the Elements of Style set. I don't think I've said that enough. ;)

Yikes! Bad lighting. What I did to achieve this look was stamp the image with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I took my sponge, dabbed it in Pumpkin Pie classic ink and smudged away. Basically, I continued to sponge until I achieved the color I wanted.

The dark brown cardstock - Early Expresso - is my new fave! I think it's replaced Chocolate Chip. Expect to see a lot of this paper. I embossed this paper using the Vintage Wall embossing folder. It's new and it's awesome.

Thanks for looking!
