Embossed Reverse Highlighted Window

A technique with no name- hmmm.

It's a embossed window but with the reverse of the highlighting technique- gotta love it!- Did take a little thinking to figure out what to do though.

This combines 2 challenges from SCS TLC331 and CC329 for suede, mambo and crumbcake.

The base is soft suede with a layer of melon mambo embossed with Elegant lines EF.

Then another layer of soft suede in a oval, then a crumbcake oval, stamped with suede using Just Believe stampset and then whole thing was embossed using the Square lattice EF.

I cut another oval slightly larger than the opening in vanilla - and although I usually just "eyeball" stamp, I did take out my stamp positioner to amek sure I got the right position for the images I wanted to use in the vanilla oval- used wasabi, then wiped the flower parts with the blender pen and then reinked it with the melon marker, added a little bit of highlights with soft suede on the leaves- then huffed and puffed and stamped the image. The whole window is raised using dimensionals.

The ribbon is crumbcake seambinding that I gathered by pulling just on the middle thread of the ribbon. Added the sentiment punched out with curly label - the layer is done with 2 curly labels punched soft suede pieces cut in half and spread out in both directions to add a bit of color behind the sentiment. Enjoy! Lynda
