First off yahhhh. I am soo excited, I joined my first Friday Mashup last week and my card was selected as one of the Glam Squad.
It just so happens that my post is for this weeks Friday Mashup, I though I would combine two challenges with one card as I am behind a day with the 365 Card Challenge. I am trying for a full week of a card a day.
Friday Mashup Challenge this week is Bossy and Sketchy:
So here is how we are "MASHING IT UP" this week
- Create a project using the provided "Sketch".
- or Create a project that has a "Dry Embossing on it".
- or "Mash it Up!" and create a card using the "Sketch with Dry Embossing".
The Second Challenge is for 365 Card Challenge- Day 178-Buried Deep, the details are as follows:
"Dig into your stash and crack open 2 items that you've never used before. They can be old or they can be new, but they can't have been used."
This sketch is perfect for the card I had in mind. I used my Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder to emboss all the designer paper layers and the scalloped circle, I used a brand new stamp from my Inkadinkado Dot Flourishes, I also opened a new package of Crystal Stickers.
The focal image was first stamped with Stampabilites- Faded Text Background, I then stamped a Flourish and used a Tombow glue pen to follow some of the dots and add Glitter, it turned out a little thicker in parts then I wanted but it still looks good. I used a wide variety of pearls and gems to give a unique look.
I tied brown dotted ribbon then added Sew Easy fancy floss, finishing with small bow.
I tried to angle the picture to get the gems and the glitter but I could not make it happen, so sparkly gems it is.
Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Kaiser Craft, Inkadinkado-Dot Flourishes, Stampabilites-Faded Text Background, The Stamps of Life-getwell2you,Crystal Stickers-Gems and Pearls, Sew Easy fancy floss, misc ribbon, EK Success- Circle Punches.
