Ink & Inspiration - Focus on Tools

Hello everyone and welcome to my first Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop post. I was so excited to be invited to join this group of fabulous crafters and look forward to taking part in this blog hop each month. 

The theme for this month is "Focus on Tools" and when creating my project I focused on using die cutting and embossing tools. 

It's very hard to go past the stunning colour and shading on the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper but for this project I chose to add a little extra texture using the Subtle 3D embossing folder. The Subtle 3D Embossing folder is such a great tool for adding a little extra detail without detracting from the main focal point of your project. 

Another great way of adding detail to a project is by using dies than feature a stitched element, like the Pool Party Circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies or this gorgeous label from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. Once again the subtle detail of stitching add an element of texture to your project without drawing the eye away from the hand-coloured bird and flowers.
