It's mambo No. 5

Well melon mambo that is, one of the yummy new colours from Stampin' Up! and these three cards show case all of the new colours. Which also include rich razzleberry and soft suede.

On closer inspection you can see I have used a technique called resist stamping. I stamped the image with versamark then used clear embossing powder and heated. Left to dry and then using a sponge dauber dabbed the ink over the image and wiped it clean with a paper towel to reveal the image underneath.

Hope you are having a good week :D
