I'm back in school-Scrapping Outback chipboard school

This has been one fantastic day here in Iceland. Our national handball team won Spain and is going to play for the gold in the Olympics next sunday against France. This is huge. We are a nation of 300.000 people and this is a group sport (14 players) so you can imagine how big it is for us to win nations of 40 millions !!!!!!!! The nation is going crazy people are dancing on the streets. I cried and cried. Even though I'm sick as a dog I was acting like a crazy person. I'm so proud I can't describe it. We love our boys

Guess what ! I'm back to school. I'm always trying to learn something new in this amazing hobby and I have alot to learn. When I saw that the site Scrapping Outback is hosting a 7 weeks of chipboard school I just had to join the school. The funny thing is that few weeks earlier I bought chipboards from them and they arrived in the same week that the school started. How perfect was that ???

The first lesson was perfect for me, a scrapper that has been scrapping since 2004 and has never embossed. In short the lesson was to ink the title with more then one color of ink and then use clear embossing powder over it. I used this technique on the word Pirate and the Cute birdie. Both chipboards are from Scrapping Outback.

Title: So not a Pirate Girl. Subtitle: She is a pure Princess.

Supplies I used for this LO: Bazzill cardstock, Rusty Pickle chocolate Kisses, Bazzill brad, Prima jewel, doodlebug ric rac, American Crafts thichers, Scrapping Outback chipboards (the title and the birdie), Doodlebug Ink, Stamping UP ink, Fancy pants stamp,Hambly overlay StazOn ink, Tim Holtz distressing clear ink,Whispers clear embossing powder and the ribbon/lace is unknown.
This was so much fun and I'm not an embossing virgin anymore.
Over and out
