Pinkfresh Studio Technique Talk Blog Hop




Hello and Welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio Technique Talk Blog Hop!  Each project will feature a stamping technique, I can't wait to hop around!  You should have arrived here from the awesome Elena Roussakis' blog!  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning which is the Pinkfresh Blog.

There will be four Lucky Winners!  Pinkfresh Studio will be giving away four - $25 Gift Certifcates to the Pinkfresh Studio Store.  Comments will close at 11:59 pm CST on Monday, February 26, 2018.  Winners will be randomly selected and the requirement is that you leave a comment on each blog in the hop!  Winners will be announced on Wednesday, February 28th on the Pinkfresh Studio Blog.  



Today I'm featuring the following stamp sets:



Do you see those delish layers of cake?  They've been stamped with dye ink.  I have then heat embossed a floral bouquet from Fleur 1 in white.  


I then followed up with various copic markers, do you see the subtle shading?  A quick way to add a bit of detail to a solid image.

I finished off my card with rainbow confetti using the various copic markers I used on the cake layers.


At a quick glance it looks like it is a clean + simple design but I think the heat embossing really packs a punch, don't you?


That's it for me and I'm the end of the hop!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Here's the complete hop listing in case you get lost along the way:
