Hi everyone, I hope you are having a restful weekend.
I'm catching up on some more challenge cards, although I'm running out of time!
I wanted to play along with the CAS Mix Up Card Challenge, where the theme is to use an embossing folder. I use them a lot so wanted to try something different.
I embossed some blending card, then inked over the raised design with peacock feathers and weathered wood oxide inks.
Next I spritzed with some home made gold shimmer spray, to blend and soften the colours.
I knew I wanted to use some paper flowers, but at this stage I was a bit stuck so googled the folder I was using and saw this gorgeous tag by Tammy Tuterow.
I wanted more shine, so I followed her idea and painted on some clear rock candy crackle paint.
Next, diecut some rolled roses from scraps of watercolour paper, coloured them with distress inks and shaped some leaves.
I love the look of the embossing, it reminds me of a vintage wallpaper! My elements are embossing folder, stamping, diecutting and ink blending.
I'm also linking up to the Happy Little Stampers anything goes with dies challenge.
At Cuttlebug Mania the theme is thank you. I've used an embossing folder and dies, (details below ) with my trusty old Cuttlebug!
The theme is to give thanks at Work it Wednesday on the Simon Says Stamp blog.
(This card is for one of my son's friends who gave me the most beautiful painted owl rock.)
I've used snippets of watercolour paper for the roses and a scrap of green card for the leaves, so I'm visiting the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
