It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Vicky Gould our challenge hostess for the month of August continues to bring us some fun challenges.
Vicky has challenged us this week to Make your own embellishments, buttons, flowers, brads, etc. Use at least two designer papers and an embossing folder.
I recently discovered a new (to me) digital stamp store online called Di’s Digi Stamps … she had some fun images including a few owls I had to have and the image above was another I just had to have because my sister loves elephants haha! This is called Penny’s Pet.
The embellishments I used on here which I made are the roses on the top left hand corner of my card … these are made using a mold and some paper clay and then airbrushed with my copic airbrush. It is an absolute fluke that I used more then 2 designer papers on here as I only read the embellishments part of this challenge before I made my card oops … but you might notice I didn’t use an embossing folder … oops!
Here is the inside of my card …. as I mentioned above I didn’t read I needed to use an embossing folder until AFTER my card was made, so once I found out and I hadn’t done the inside at the time I was able to emboss a piece of designer paper and use that. So I have completed the challenge as I was supposed to…. Vicky didn’t say it all had to be on the front haha , and I know she even forgot that part of the challenge which is just too funny!
