I used a super cute stamp that I got at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More that I've had for ages but it hadn't seen ink before!
My challenge to you this weekend is to find a stamp that you've had for ages and not yet used and give it some air!

Sentiment - KI Memories
Ink - Tsukineko VersaFine Onyx Black
Embossing Powder - Ranger Super Fine in Clear
As this was a clear stamp I like to use Versafine ink as opposed to Memento as I think it gives a much clearer and cleaner stamped image. However Versafine and Copic's don't like each other much so to stop the ink bleeding I just gave it a quick coat of clear embossing powder and heat set it. I will admit that I really like the raised finish on an embossed image and so the extra couple of steps are worth it me.
I hope you've liked this and I hope that Blogger doesn't have any more big problems looming!
Have a wonderful Saturday and be sure to drop by tomorrow for a card for Pile It On!
