UR Special

Hey there!!

How is everyone doing?!?! Its cold and there was snow yesterday, but i'm so done with that! I'm thinking out of mind out of sight!! (think it will work?!?! hehe)

Today i have a card i made for The Runway Inspired Challenge. Here is the fashion inspiration! (so shiny!)

I dug out some silver glitter paper and wondered if i could emboss on it! Well turns out you can! And i love the result. I used watermark ink and The Alley Way's new stamp set Spotted. With some washi tape and post it notes i masked of all but a triangle at the top of my glitter panel. I stamped and embossed each line until the triangle was complete. Removed the washi tape and wa-la a nice shiny, dotty triangle!!

For a sentiment i die cut a U and R, then pressed them into watermark ink and embossed them with the same black embossing powder i used for the triangle. This gave the letters a nice glossy look to them.

Next i stamped and embossed the sentiment special from The Alley Way's Tooty Fruity stamp set. I added the U and R and a grey jewel. I also added 3 big silver sequins at the triangle, adding enamel dots to the sequins centers!

  5. Okay, I don't usually do this because I know judging a challenge must be the hardest job, but you were seriously robbed by not being recognized by RIC for this incredible card, Dana! The creative thought, the amount of work, the fabulous end result, it is SO a winner to me!! Hugs, Darnell
