Leftovers! I always end up with a gazillion of them and most of them get tossed into a box to make up ‘someday’. I’ve looked carefully at my calendar and ‘Someday’ just wasn’t put on there this year. Huh! So I decided to ‘Carpe’ dem leftovers from THIS card a couple of days ago and use them up TODAY. : )
See the ‘steam’ and the butterfly? They’re from the cutaways from the diecut heart doily on that previous card. I just ran a gray copic over them and put some sparkle on the butterfly and they make great accents! And that teapot/coffee pot? Sometimes you have something you want to use and the colors just don’t match up. (See pic below for before and after.) I just pressed it into Versamark ink, poured copper embossing powder over it and heat embossed it. I had to do it twice and then use a marker to draw in a couple of lines, but I love how it turned out!
Note: that’s not a defect in the embossing powder! lol! For variety, I did strips of silver and copper for the tea kettle background. Also, the green in the picture below is closer to the true color.. which goes WAY better with the purple than what the camera shows above!
