Helping Out A Friend

Recently, I met some new scrapbook friends and they were asking be about inking, chalking, dry embossing, etc.  So while at the crop, I made two quick projects with them to demo some scrapbooking techniques. 

For the card front, we embossed it with the Cuttlebug.  We altered wedding flowers from Walmart with ink to give them color.  We set the flowers with eyelets on the card.  We inked the edges of the card.

On the bookmark, we used an acrylic block and clear stamps.  We inked the stamps with different colors and mounted a chalked flower with an eyelet to the bookmark.  We actually did two bookmarks and adhered them together to make it more pleasing to the eye.  To finish it off, we embellished with ribbon.  

Both ladies were pleased with their projects and the new techniques they learned.
