Wow what fab fathers day card and sporty cards you all made. Another week another and another fab challenge and one I'm sure we will have loads of entries for EMBOSSING, and time any kind wet powder or dry.
Another wonderful and generous sponsor once again too this time
I used the same technique on the buttons that came in the kit, I must admit it felt as if I was cheating as the images were already coloured, but all the colours work so well together. I again embossed with versamark and clear embossing powder and poked holes in the buttons. I thought they looked quite effective especially when you put some together.
The card I made I thought would make a fab retirement card and to keep in with the whole theme I deided to print the journal page in the kit for the inside of the card, to keep in with the older feel of the card.I just love the details of the watermark like effect of the leaves. The overall finished card looks like this, but have to say I haven't added a sentiment as although I had initially decide on a retirement card it would really do for a mans birthday card too afterall all men no matter what age are little boys at heart.
My second project is an index file, (said there would be more) I have been indexing all the stamps and images I have in hope that I will use all my stamps more regularly, plus if someone wants something specific I'll beable to show them the images I have for them to choose from. This was perfect for this index as I have animals and flora in it. I used another image fromt the same set and the journalling label and some of the brads and more buttons again from the set which I again embossed as before.
