Newton's Nook May Release - Adventure Awaits!


If you are looking for my CFS - Calling All Sistah's post, click HERE!


Welcome back for day two of the NND May reveal!  Today we are sharing projects made with the new Adventure Awaits stamp set.  Although I didn't use them in today's project, there are two companion dies as well - please note these are not matching dies, but they go with the theme!

I couldn't wait to use the awesome stag from this set, so I had to use it, front & center on my card!   My vision was a gold stag with color within the embossing.  To achieve this, I had to get creative, since it's pretty difficult to get a colored pencil within those tiny lines once the embossing is done!   I used my MISTI to set up my card front and then stamped in BLACK on the black cardstock.   It was a challenge to see the stamping, but I was able to see it just enough, and I colored in all the cool patterns with my Prismacolor pencils.   Once I was finished, I was able to put my card base back into the MISTI and re-stamp directly over top, this time using Versamark ink.    I heat embossed with gold EP, and voila!   perfectly colored patterns!
