Our Bloggers Challenge this week is embossing. There are alot of ways to emboss, I went with Versamark and embossing powder.
I could not resist making another card with a summer theme…..come on Summer! I colored the umbrella’s with Copic markers and painted over the Copics with Creative Inspirations Paint.
While I was at it, I decided to make a second card with the same stamps (Happy Hour) by Firecracker Designs by Pamela. I used a Sketch Challenge by Operation Write Home Stars and Stripes blog from last week- a project to make cards for the troops. My Blog sister Karen is very active in this group and has inspired me to try a challenge. I have been sending boxes to soldiers for about 5 years- I try to include cards for the kids to send home- the current soldier is the son of another nurse that works in my department.
How fun is this? Put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up, Put the lime in the coconut call the Doctor woke him up said, DOCTOR……am I aging my self??? I loved that song way back when….
I used the one inch circle punch and Coordinations CS, cut the top of the circle off, added a little piece of white CS to mimic milk in the coconut- and lightly sanded the CS.
I then finished the card using the sketch and alot of TJ Techniques, including Depth of Field, Sanded Coordinations and Whisped Frames.
