Inspiration Hit!

Phew. I would have to say that that was one of the longest weeks of school ever! It just seemed to drag on and on.... Last night I had my best friend and his hubbie over for some crafts and Wii, we never actually got to the crafts, but after they left I checked out SCS (as I always do) and found Stephanie's Inspiration Challenge and I started putting these cards together.

It was inspired by a piece of Etsy art and it just so happened I had some Basic Grey Papers with the exact same colour schemes rotting away in my stash! I altered the paper a little by airbrushing the circles, drawing the vertical lines, and inking the edges.

Special Technique: Another touch I did on both of the cards was add a sprinkling of UTEE. I have an oil painting from a local artist and she didn't glaze her whole work, only in random spots, so I did the same with the embossing powder. I literally sprinkled it on and heated it up from below!

Stamps: Crafty Secrets (Sentiment), PTI (Sentiment)
Paper: basic grey, neenah
Ink: ranger lamp black
Accessories: Black Pearls (Queen Bee), Brads, Utee, Silhouette die cutter, black pen

  4. I loved the look of the embossing powder so tried it on a valentine I was making. I wondered why you heated from underneath. Sooo I tried it from the top and realized why as I blew embossing powder all over the kitchen.
    I understand now!
