As we are 'Adding a Little Texture' this week I have usedSimon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe on the first card and Simon Says Stamp Medium DotsDiamond Circles and Ring Cluster on the second. My embossing papers went funny and lumpy and yellosish!!! I added a little water - no help so I put into a small Kenwood blender, added a little vodka (thinking alcohol would help) and whizzed it. It worked although did end still lemony not white.
I used the adorable Stampendous 'Nesting Bird', and coloured her with Copics.



The sentiment on this card is from Stending and Wishing stamp stamped with Ranger Super Fine Embossing Powder.

The colors of the image sure stands out beautifully from the neutral background. I really like your second one too, I actually think it's a nice effect that some papers turned out looking more cream than white...
