Shadow Stamping

Hello again

I've been struggling for ideas lately so I decided that today, I would try a less complex project and went with some simple shadow stamping.

Firstly, because I didn't know what I was going to create, I used a larger piece of cardstock and stamped a few images with Memento, then "shadow" stamped with Versamark and white heat embossed. Then I used my blending brush and covered the image with Crumb Cake, going from dark to light, wiped over the heat embossing with a tissue to remove the ink and then flicked Memento over the entire area with an Aqua Painter. 

When I was happy with the result, I die-cut each image with the Stitched Rectangles, stamped a greeting with Memento and added the black pearls, wrapped ribbon around and mounted each image on Basic Black and attached an embossed piece of Crumb Cake behind.

Here is a close-up of each card, followed by a full product list:
