Yes, I have just finished Week #27 of the
Altered Playing Card Challenge
This week it was all about using embossing powder as part of the background. I'm a bit out of practice as I don't emboss things very much anymore, but I rumaged around and found some 'Fine Gold' embossing powder. I also opened the tub of Tim Holtz' 'Shabby Shutters' embossing powder which looks nothing like the stamp I used underneath - oh well, it's a learning curve isn't it?
The background colour is SU 'kiwi kiss' (discontinued) with 'fine gold' embossing powder over a stamp from SU "Clockworks'. "Bla Bla Bla' (Stampotique) is stamped in 'jet black' Archival Ink, along with a pointing finger stamp from Prima "Stationers Desk". The butterfly is also embossed with 'fine gold' and is also from Prima "Butterfly Wings" set. I doodled around the border.
The background colour is SU 'tempting turquoise' with 'shabby shutters' embossing powder over another stamp in the "Clockworks" set (yes I know, this doesn't look anything like the stamp). The little postage image is from Prima "Stationers Desk", the heart is a Craft Stamper magazine freebie. The little envelope came from a roll of images I found in Kmart this week. Again I doodled around the border.
We've now come to end of the Altered Playing Card Challenge. It has been lots of fun and learning new techniques along the way. A big thanks to Claudine for all her inspiration each week. Come back again and have a look at how I decided to display my cards.
