It's Friday and that means that Carole'Anne and Sandi have their 10 Minute Challenge. This Week you are to use the Bella Toile Background stamp, Brocade Blue, Whisper White and another stamp set of your choice. Since the LNS Stampers Group challenge for this week is a Sympathy card for my "other set" I choose Thoughts and Prayers.
As my base, I used Brocade Blue. Made a layer of Whisper White and stamped Bella Toile in Brocade Blue. Then I "direct to paper" with VersaMark and covered that in Clear Embossing Powder, used the Heat Tool. Let it dry a bit, direct to paper with Versamark, more Clear Embosing Powder, Heat Tool. Repeated one more time, for a total of 3. It shines just like Ice!
The sentiment for Thoughts and Prayers: mixed Brocade Blue reinker with a little Frost White Shimmer Paint and applied that to the stamp with a sponge dauber. Punched it out with the Small Oval Punch and made a Brocade Blue Punch with the Scallop Oval Punch. Adhered those two together and applied to layer. Brocade Blue Grosgrain Ribbon was layered to White Satin Ribbon. Added Brocade Blue Brads and put that on the left hand side of the white layer. Applied the whole white layer to the Brocade Blue base with Sticky Strip. Because of all the embossing the white layer is really thick and I wanted to make sure that I stayed put. I'll be entering this one in the LNS Stampers Group Sympathy Challenge Shortly.
Here's what "the Kids" are up to today....
I just know they are discussing ways to get into trouble :):)
A La Prochaine!
