This weeks Challenge is all about “coolness” ....
Using Stampin’ Ups! Dapper Denim, Bermuda Bay & Lemon Lime Twist.
So here’s my take on the “Coolness Challenge “. My first thought when seeing the above colours was the tropics 🐠 , especially now that the weather is cooing off.
So I pulled out the inks and began to swipe the colours across the WC paper using a baby wipe. I then misted the colours with water to give a more organic look. To speed things along I used my SU heat gun to dry the WC paper. I’m not the most patient person when it comes to watching things dry 😝
Using a set of Tonic rectangular layering Dies I cut out a base. Then using the tropical leaf stamp and versamark, I stamped the leaf randomly on the base. Working quickly I spread on the WOW white embossing powder and heat embossed it and voila... I did allow the base to cool before die cutting a frame.
I used foam tape to pop up and offset the inside of the frame adding even more dimension to the card.
Then using a scrap piece of WC paper and Bermuda Bay ink I inked the paper well, misted and heat dried. Then using the SU Botanical Builder palm branch die I cut out two branches to embellish the card. Next onto the sentiment. I used black ink and a sentiment from the SU So Many Shells stamp set and another of the Tonic rectangular layering Dies to cut out. I wrapped SU linen thread around the top of the sentiment. I really,Ive to add texture and dimension to cards I make.
The rest is just basic stamping and gluing.
