Today’s tutorial on Splitcoast is for the Embedded Image technique and written by Holly McMillen. Holly doesn’t have the equipment to shoot video tutorials, so I did that for her.

For my focal point I cut a piece of the new My Mind’s Eye 6×6 Vanity Fair Patterned paper (sneak peek….brought it home with me from CHA) with the second largest of the Label 2 Nestabilities die. The bottom was sponged with Peeled Paint, the top with Stormy Sky Distress inks before the paper was embossed several times with clear embossing powder.

The image is another sneek peak. It’s an image from Flourishes Sweet Days of Summer set, which will be released on August 12th. Wait until you see all the images. It’s gorgeous…and yes, I am a lucky duck to already own that set and the paper! After the clear embossing powder cooled on the label, I stamped the image in Embossing ink on the label and embossed it with Black Soot Distress Embossing powder.

The layer was adhered to a piece of black cardstock, which was cut with scissors into a slightly bigger layer. Black Nestabling for Label 2 were adhered around the image.

The card base was cut out of black cardstock with the second smallest of the Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities. A 1 3/4″ x 4″ strip of MME Vanity Fair paper was adhered to a 4″ square of the same paper pack. The layers were adhered to a 1/4″ bigger piece of Neenah Solar white cardstock and White May Arts Silk Ribbon was tied around it. The bow was topped with a Recollection brad and the layers were adhered to the card base.

A white pearl swirl from Want2Scrap was cut apart and parts were adhered to the top left and bottom right of the card base before the main image was adhered in the center with dimensionals.  A sentiment from the new set was stamped with Jet Black Archival ink on a piece of Neenah white cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the smallest of the small Petite Oval Nestabilities dies. Before the panel was adhered, it was sponged lightly with Peeled Paint Distress ink.
