Happy Thanksgiving! To all of you celebrating today … may you be blessed with the joy and love of family and friends as you feast! At Time Out, we’re half way through our latest challenge, where we’re focussing on embossing with an optional twist of sparkle. I’ve gone with two types of embossing and plenty of sparkle and shine this week …
The panel started off life as white card stock, embossed at the Lake House with a Stampin’ Up EF (I think … another goodie in the collective stash … don’t know which of the BABES it belongs to). On the debossed side, I coloured in the snowflake impressions with a silver fine liner, heat embossed the sentiment (SSS and Uniko Studio) in Hero Arts silver EP and then set to with some Distress Inks. Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire were sponged over the panel, and I splattered and sprayed Shimmer Spritz over it to lift the colour and add some delicate sparkle … a sort of all over Wink of Stella effect. To finish, I added a little bling to each snowflake and a few star sequins, and popped the panel up on foam dots on the card base.
There’s already a wonderful gallery filled with embossed and sparkly delights … and there are ideas galore from the DT over at the Time Out blog. If you haven’t played along yet, why not pop over and see where your imagination might take you … you could win the chance to be a Guest Designer … and if you use the optional twist, you’ll be in with a random chance of winning a stamp set from our sponsor, Avocado Arts!
My card’s heading over to join in with …
