I'm back with a new project to show you all. That was quick eh? (Yes, I'm Canadian...) This week's challenge over at the Brakefast Club is to use 3 of something on your project. Three buttons, three different papers... you get the gist of it. I had an Easter card to make for a fellow member on the Stampin' Canada board, so I kinda cheated and combined both projects into one. Here is my card for this week's challenge:
Stamps: Lilies (I Brake For Digis), sentiment (SU! Well Scripted set)
Papers, coloured cardstock (SU!), white cardstock (Wausau Exact Index 110#)
Tools & Embellishments: Craft Robo, Elegant Bouquet embossing folder (SU!), embossing ink (VersaMark), clear embossing powder (Stampendous), Copic markers, Liquid Pearls, Onyx ink pad (Stampology - Autumn Leaves), embossing stylus
To create the background on the yellow cardstock, I first embossed it with the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder. Then I took my VersaMark re-inker and used a paint brush to paint on the ink over the design. Initially, I tried to use the ink pad and rub it on so that it only hit the high spots, but that was a disaster. Painting the ink on worked sooooo much better. Then I poured on the embossing powder, shook off the excess, and hit it with the heat gun. I like the way it turned out. I cut my "faux nesties" with my CraftRobo. To finish off the image, I put three little "pearls" with the Liquid Pearls on the bottom side. Its pretty simple in design, but I really like the colour combo. And it also fits into the challenge - 3 colours (also the 3 little "pearls" works too).
Thanks for stopping by today. I'll be back soon with something new to show you again.
