HSS Technique Challenge #140

So I have to be honest, I was a little nervous in the beginning stages of making this card. I had some ideas for it initially, but I wasn't quite sure where it would end up. In the end I was really happy with it. I tried some techniques and looks that I wouldn't normally use and voila...not too shabby!


I started with a Sahara Sand base and used the Spider Web Embossing Folder and Elegant Eggplant ink to do the Inked Embossing Challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Then I just layered a Paper Doily Sizzlit cut from Very Vanilla card stock with a piece of Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP cut with a Labels Collection Framelit. I am so LOVING this paper! It has some really fun patterns and the colors are perfect. After Embossing the image from the Toxic Treats set with Very Vanilla embossing powder on Basic Gray paper, I cut that with a smaller framelit and used Stampin' Dimensionals to add depth. 


The final touch was the addition of some coordinating ribbon and a few dabs of Dazzling Details for a dewy effect.


 This week's challenge was so simple and FUN! Hop on over to HSS to check out the other designer's projects and then come join us!

Very cool! I loved the Dazzling Details right away, and then you mentioned it was used as dew - so clever, that's just what it looks like :) Lots of great detail...heat embossing, the doily and the pretty ribbons! So nice. erika
