Dimensional Elements have become my favorite embellishment. (Remember, I'm embellishment-challenged!) These are SO easy to use and make quite a statement!
I colored all of these with ink, but in different ways. The flat frames for the S and the A, I inked directly from the stamp pad, swirling it on in a circular motion. It took on some of the texture from the chipboard, making a neat pattern. For the N and S, I used reinker in a little Ceramicoat. This created an even, smooth look to the letter and made a great accent against the mottled look of the larger letters. I used a sponge for the r, t, c, and I. On the c, I sponged it several times to make sure it had a darker appearance.
You can easily cover the Dimensional Elements with paper, too. I'll show you in a future post! If you haven't tried using some of these, do! They are great!
Contact me if you have any questions about any of the things above.

My favorite things in the world are a showery day, a warm cup of cider, a great idea and an empty notepad, or two or three - heck, just get me a whole case of the suckers, the pink ones! :) When my mom challenged me to do what I loved, I reclaimed my desire to write and can't stand to go a day, now, without spending some time with a pen in my hand. I'm not sure where God is leading me on this journey, but I asked Him to give me the desires of my heart and trust that He has for a purpose.
