Hi there bloggers. I am back with another challenge entry, this time for The Greeting Farms Club Anya Saturday Sketch. This week we are attempting a sketch created by the very talented Jennifer Shults. I was going to combine this card with a "Golden Birthday" challenge set by Sarah Schwerin at Inkurable Stampers. Unfortunately, I was not able to finalise the card in time but I did have fun experimenting with different embossing methods to achieve a very golden and glossy look and in the end thought it would be a perfect card to enter into the Southern Girls Challenge blog whose theme this week is "Dry Embossing". So without further ado, here is my latest card.
For this card, I started off by inking up a piece of white cardstock using distress ink "Antique Linen". I then dry embossed the piece using "Rays" textured fade by Tim Holtz. I then ran a clear embossing ink stamp pad over the raised areas of my piece and sprinkled it with a gold embossing powder before heat setting it. Lastly I distressed the edges using "Walnut Stain". I stamped my image (I used what I call Cheeky Angel from the Greeting Farm's Naughty or Nice set) on X-press it cardstock using Memento ink in "Rich Cocoa". I coloured cheeky using copic ciao pens (see colours as listed below). For the background paper I stamped the music notes on a white piece of cardstock using Kaisercrafts "Music Notes" clear acrylic stamp with the "Rich Cocoa" Memento Ink before once again inking using "Antique Linen" distress ink. I then distressed the edge with "Worn Lipstick and Walnut Stain" and a distressing tool. The same was applied to the paper within the frame behind the image. I hope you like this card.
Until next time, happy stamping/scrapping.
