This is definitely a scheduled post.
I'm going to be fluttering delicately into the new year, sharing not one but TWO DT cards for the first Lavinia Stamps Challenge of 2014.
The Challenge Theme is
Now, I'm more of a "Stickles" kind of girl so I thought I'd set myself the challenge of trying something different.
I read on Pinterest that you could add glitter to embossing powder so even though I'm a bit challenged when it comes to using a heat tool, I thought I'd give it a go, I would like to add that for the first time ever my heat tool behaved, usually it overheats mid way though an image.
I tried lots of variations, my favourite result being the one shown here where I used clear embossing powder and a mix on green and fine gold glitter on the butterfly stamped using black Versafine ink. The colour was created using a wet brush and some Cosmic shimmer that has been in my drawer unopened for several years.
This was the first DT card that I made, this one I created by making a mask so that I could ink pink and purple shades before stamping the Zentangle butterfly and adding stickles. I pierced a frame around the image then masked the centre before stamping the Zen leaf.
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
