It's time for another Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday Challenge. The recipe is to create a 4x7 card, with 3 designer papers, 5 flowers, glitter and wet embossing. There was some discussion among our group about embossing glitter (a comma can make quite a difference - just read the book Eats, Shoots and Leaves for hilarious consequences of placing commas in the wrong place), so I took up the challenge to use my glitter embossing powder. I used it as a border around my DP blocks. I applied the embossing ink from the EK success pens along one side at a time and embossed it with Inkadinkado Sparkle Embossing powder. My DPs were from different paper packs (probably DCWV) and I loosely followed the sketch provided by Doodle Street Challenge #3. The flowers are from Oriental Trading Company and I used my faithful Matte Accents for the center of the flowers (I tried to hurry the drying time by using my heat gun (it was out after all
) and ended up making the liquid bubble/boil so it looks a little "funny" and feels rubbery). The image is from Sewn Together and was yesterday's freebie so be sure to get your copy of this image. I colored it with colored pencils. I should have left it alone, but I did also use a blending stump too.
