Today I spent a few hours making some cards. This is what I finally came up with for the current challenge at Time Out. The super talented Kim, of Art Keeps Me Sane, created a card and our challenge was to CASE it and put our own twist on it. Here's Kim's fabulous card -
Stunning, isn't it? This may just be the hardest card I've ever cased. I wanted to keep the black card, because I've never made one before. I tried white ink, white embossing, gold ink with clear embossing, nothing looked good.
Finally, I decided to try gold embossing powder. I used the SSS Forever & Always stamp set that came in one of their card kits last year. (Their kits are worth checking into, by the way.) Versamark was used to stamp the flowers along the top and side, three leaves and the sentiment. I then heat embossed with Stampendous Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder. That gold is very shiny and I loved the contrast with the black CS.
I matted the embossed panel with DCWV Glitzy Glitter paper and then added it to a black card base. I'm fairly happy with how this turned out. Happy enough that this didn't get tossed like the others.
You can see how the DT cased Kim's card and the fabulous entries at Time Out Challenge #28.
Tomorrow I'll be attending a Bridal Show with my niece and my sister. The big day is in August of 2016 and will be here before we know it. My niece is coming over early to help me with the baby shower invitations for another niece. Babies and weddings ... I suddenly feel very old.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the remainder of your weekend.
