PTI MIM: Gradient Inking and PP: Heat Embossing

I love inking and was excited to see Betsy's beautiful project on this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday! Wasn't as excited about my project but I'll keep practicing my technique. It didn't help that I ran out of ink blending foam and had to double up. ;)

Papertrey Playhouse's current challenge is to use heat embossing and a stamp set we haven't used before (or haven't used in awhile). I've never used my Egg Hunt set before and was happy to have the handy die!

Thanks for stopping by!
