  1. AHH!! I love this card!! I also have noticed that you dont wipe off the excess in after you emboss and color….or am I missing this?! This was one of my fave cards of yours!!! ….Pam

      @Pam: I think I didn’t wipe it because it’s black embossing powder. I usually wipe the white though!

  2. I just stumbled across your blog this morning and I am so glad I did! I love your style and can hardly wait to finish this comment and pull out my HA Newspaper Skyline stamp and try my hand at your card design. I love the sunset , but most impressive to me is coloring in the windows with white gel pen! Fabulous effect. thanks for the inspiration; I will be back for more!

    Oops – forgot to mention. I have increased my copic marker inventory about a thousand fold (from 3 to 144) after a healthy order with Dick Blick (through your link, of course!). I’m going to go back through your posts to find even more inspiration. Thanks again!
