Doing the Triple

Morning all.  We are going Back to Basics and Beyond today with a new challenge.  Unfortunately, our shrink plastic challenge didn't seem to excite much interest so we are moving on to 'Triple Stamping'.  The technique is a fun one and easier to do than it looks.  There are plenty of tutorials on You tube if you aren't familiar with this style.  Most of the example I've seen are for normal rectangles but I'm a Contrary Mary and I wanted to try something a little different.  What do you think?

I'm hoping that you can see the image ok.  I've had the stamp, which was from Chocolate Baroque, for ages but I've only used it a couple of times.  This is the first time I've used embossing powder on it.  I'm still not sure if I should add colour to the koi in the middle.  It looks so effective in real life.

Please pop over and have a look at what the Design Team have created, and whilst you are there maybe you could join in the fun.

Thanks for reading.
