Happy Friday!! We're in the process of getting a HUGE snow storm here today (at least that's what the weathermen are saying - so far, so good!), so what better time to clean the house a bit and then get crafty! As I mentioned last week, the new Mix-Ability Challenge at SCS happens on Fridays so I played along. Today's challenge is Emboss Resist which I haven't done in forever!
(All the supplies are from eclectic Paperie and will be linked up at the end of the post.)
I'm calling this my "dirty chalkboard" card - lol! First, I stamped and embossed (with white ep) the images and sentiments using Cupid's Arrow from Wplus9 on black cardstock. Then I used Picket Fence Distress Stain and swiped it all over my card to make it appear that the chalkboard was really chalky - you know, like those cheaper kinds of blackboards that you can never seem to get clean?! :) Then I heavily sprayed the whole thing with Light Pink Glimmer Mist which you can see better in the close-up photo.
I also used the emboss resist technique to make the "frame" - embossing a woodgrain pattern on kraft cardstock with clear embossing powder and then going over it with a sponge applicator and Distressed Walnut Ink. The rest of the card was kept pretty simple. I used pretty paper from the Love Story pad by Echo Park. While I was in the embossing mode I embossed a chipboard heart several times with red ep, edged it with some antique lace and added a Rhinestone.
Thanks for visiting today, stay warm out there all my New England friends!
