Hey You

Hey there!!

Today i have a card i made for The Curtain Call Challenge - Pretty and Pink. I used the just release Tri-Me stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps!!! I was inspired by the pink and gold in the inspiration photo!!


Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps

I started by inking up a few of the solid triangles from the Tri-Me set in various pink inks. I inked up one tiny triangle in a very light pink, however you almost can't see it! It did look that light when i was making the card!! :D

I also added a few outline triangles, inking those up in black ink. I also added the sentiment Hey You to the middle of the card.

Since i don't have much gold things running around, i pulled out 3 wood veneer triangles. After i knew where to i wanted them to go, i coated the front of them with a versamark pen and added gold embossing powder. I used tweezers to hold them while i heated the powder (DON'T use your fingers!!) It did take another coat of embossing powder, i think because the versamark soaked into the wood. I also had to heat the powder again after i moved my tweezers to another spot, this took care of the ridges left by the tweezers after melting the 2nd round of powder.

The embossing powder i used has big granules, so only two coats was needed. If you use a fine powder you might need a 3rd coat depending on out it turns out and how much coverage you like!! :)

Thanks for stopping by!!

  7. Now this is fun! I love the embossed veneer - just the perfect touch :)
    Whenever I've done it, I stick the veneer to a piece of scrap cardstock with pop dots, so they'll come off easily after. I always end up using at least 2 coats as well, it just ends up looking smoother.
