Happiness is...

using Studio 490 stamps, new techniques seen on Wendy's blog and Ranger products!  Oh yeah, baby!

The latest challenge on the EWV Yahoo group is due Tuesday and asks that we use selective embossing techniques as taught by Wendy in two different blog posts (here and here)...because there are 2 different ideas she shares.  Same stuff, just a different look!

I used the Be Happy...Make Art stamp set with loads of Ranger products...archival ink, distress ink, distress stain, distress paint, matte medium, embossing pen, and  embossing powder.  After playing with both ideas I decided to combine them on my #8 tag as well as add a 3rd embossed flower...just stamped with clear embossing ink and powder.

This sentiment should be my daily mantra but sometimes I let other stuff get the better of me and I forget that I am usually bigger than whatever is bothering me.


  1. I like the bow and flowers in that color palette.

  2. A beautiful tag!!!!!!!!! Yes, we all need to remember that day by day!!!!!!

  3. I need to go over there and read up on the challenge...I'm time! Your tag is just BEAUTIFUL Susan! I love the bird and flowers...STUNNING!
