ZINGed!

This layout got a little crazy. I had a vision in my head - not so sure the result matches the vision. I was going to link this up with Kelly Noel's Challenge on the SC blog (step outside your box to make a page) but I missed the deadline by a day.

Everything is from SC Into the Woods kit and add-ons except the Zing and mini alpha (October Afternoon.) Punch is from Martha Stewart.


Lessons learned:
*getting a clean, crisp print with embossing ink over masking is difficult, especially when embossing on textured cardstock.

*make sure you dump the color of Zing you just used back into the bottle BEFORE you go on to the next color (I now have a lovely mixture of Cricket and Butter...ahem)

*Embossing ink stays wet longer than you think, so no need to RUSH and mess up your stamping.
