Charisma wk 2 - Good Luck

Post number 2 for today! This one's for Charisma, hope you all had fun last week if you joined in with our Birthday Bash blog hop! For our new challenge, we want to see your Good Luck creations!

Our sponsors are:

$10 Voucher to use at Tellens place Etsy Store

5 digis of choice from The Stamping Boutique!

For my project this week, I've used one of my favourite techniques - resist embossing. I've used a scripture stamp inked with Versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I inked over the whole piece with Dusty Concord and Victorian Velvet distress inks. The dandelion clocks are by Lavinia stamps and I have used black Stazon to stamp these at the edges. The DP is from the Papermania Henbury Lane paper pack. My new MS border punch gets another outing here and I've finished off with some black flat back gems and a greeting from Personal Impressions.

Thanks for looking!
