Well it's been a week since I've posted, but I've certainly been busy! Painting, ripping off wallpaper, mudding, ripping up carpet and padding, pulling nails and staples out of the floor, sanding....you name it, I probably did it! lol We have plenty to do yet, but it's been a good feeling getting as much done as we did. Now on to today's card...It's for the Friday Mashup and I'm hosting it this week. Here's what we're doing for challenge #176...
Create a project using the "Sketch".
Create a project with "Emboss Resist".
or Mash it Up! and create an "Emboss Resist project with the above Sketch".
Believe it or not this stamp set isn't what I even started with. Then I thought I'd use the big flower in Bloom with Hope. Nope, didn't end up using that either and this is what I finally ended up with. Most of the card is pretty simple, but the embossing and fussy cutting is what took the longest. It didn't help that I was working on everything at my kitchen table and my craft room is downstairs. Talk about frustrating since I like everything in its place!
Make sure you stop by the Friday Mashup HERE to check out the other fun cards and play along too. :)
I had to take a pic like this so you could see the dimension. Some of the flowers were popped and others were flush to the card stock. To do the sponging I started with Blackberry Bliss and moved my way in making sure I didn't do it as dark the farther in I got. Then I sponged Hello Honey. On the open flowers I started in the middle and worked my way out. I always sprtiz after I've sponged on my flowers because it brings out the color a little more and blends it together a little bit too...and of course it shimmers. :)
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
