Feb 19 - Embossing powders, and layers

Post by Robin G on Fri Feb 20, 2009 7:07 pm

Ok, I do realize it's (friday) oops! I had this card ready last night to post...but life, you know...in the way, and it got late. Thanks for your patience Ladies:)
I was in the process of working on one of Sarah's sketches (cuz they're great!) and thought, I'd get two things done at one time! I decided to use some foil luxury papers my HHD got me awhile back, and I hadn't done a thing with them. I like how they work here. They are cardstock weight, which I love...and they give the card lots of stability, and some class:)
Used some oooooold Mulberry paper, you have any of that? Well, I got it out, and used it in the middle, as the sketch seemed to call for a 'torn' edge in the middle, and nothing tears as great as Mulberry paper:) Like how that came out too.
Then used various flowers to create some layers. That's part of the challenge this week, lots of layers. I love to layer flowers, and even for me, this is a lot here. But I kinda like how it turned out!
Then...I've been trying to use some embossing powders. I really like them, but for whatever reason, just tend not to get them out much. Well, this was easy (but I kinda made a mess, lol). Just used a metal piece for the middle of the flower, and while you could paint it (which would also be cool!), I thought it would look great done up with some powder on it. {then my big fat fingers came into the mix, lol}. So, I stamped it with the clear ink, and sprinkled powder on the metal piece, and shook the excess off!
While I mostly like the card, it still seems not really 'me' you know? Ever happen to you? In any case, it was great to step out of my comfort zone, and do something a little different. And Sarah's sketches are alway fun to follow!
So, whatever you do, have fun with this!
Try some powders, go for some layers and see what you can come up with! Don't forget to post your creations here, so we can admire your work! We love to look and see what you can inspire us with:) Thanks for playing along!
Happy Scrappin'!
