To get started I consulted the Color Coach since I wanted to use Marina Mist. I went with the Creative Combination: Marina Mist, Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze. I stamped the Medallion stamp with Crumb Cake on Whisper White cardstock. Then, using a Dauber, dabbed Marina Mist and Cajun Craze Classic Inks. I followed that by using the Embossing Buddy over the layer completely and covered it with Versamark, "stamping it" all over directly from the ink pad known as the direct to paper technique. Added Clear Embossing Powder heating it with the heat gun. I repeated this two more times. Once it cooled I added a blue rhinestone brad in the middle by using the Paper Piercing Tool. The image above does not really capture the shine this created. Here's a close-up:
My original thought was to cut it in squares to do "tiles". With the shine it looks like one big tile so I decided not to. I stamped the sentiment Very from the Define Your Life set in Marina Mist on Crumb Cake and punched that out with the Label Punch. Surrounded the punch out with Cajun Craze. Applied the sentiment using Dimensionals to the top right hand corner.
Wouldn't this card be perfect for the teenage boy in your life that has recently had his heart broken by the "she's the One" and needs a confidence boost?? or your man friend going through a divorce??
I've got a little blog candy for you this week. I'm slowly going through my supplies and decided to clean some out. This is a package of butterflies in spring colors.
Leave a comment and I will choose a winner which will be announced next Monday. The winner will be posted then and will have 3 days to contact me by email (the link is on the left under Email Me). Should I not receive an email from the winner within that time I'll choose another one. Good Luck!
A La Prochaine!
