Today’s video is a bit special….it’s a SURPRISE bloghop! A group of us got together to share the Courage stamp set released earlier this year as a fundraiser for BCRF – and it’s a surprise to Ellen! The cause is near and dear to hear heart, and we all hope that if you haven’t purchased the stamp-and-die set, you’ll hop over and do that. Note: in this post I am ONLY linking to the stamp set, and without an affiliate link …. I want all the funds to go to breast cancer research!

Embossing on Airbrush: Hop for Hope

I got out my airbrush for my card today….if you want more info on airbrushing, check out this post. But even if you aren’t an airbrusher, you can possibly achieve something similar with Picked Raspberry distress inking and emboss over that – just be sure it’s good and dry before embossing (and use a de-static tool). Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

This whole thing was a bit of a surprise even to me – I wasn’t at all sure what would happen. Or if I’d try re-airbrushing on top. But I’m super pleased with the result!
