Here's the info:
This week's Mashup Challenge:
- Create a project with an "Antique Style, element or theme".
- Create a project using the "Embossed Embossing technique" (tutorial) .
- or Mash it Up! and create an "Antique project using the Embossed Embossing Technique".
I'm combining my card with the current Friday challenge over at Frosted Designs which is to use recycled materials and homemade flowers.
This is my card for both challenges........
I had lots of fun with this technique!!! First , I embossed a piece of leftover ledger paper with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and then used my brayer to layer some Versaink before sprinking TH embossing powder in Old Paper and then heat set it. To give it a more aged look, I stenciled some stains and then distressed and inked the edges. This certainly has an antique feel to it already. I made some flowers using a Stampin Up! punch for the larger flowers and my Cricut and the Art Philosophy cartridge for the smaller ones. The sentiment is an oldie from Close To My Heart called Thoughtful Seasons. My recycled items are some cheesecloth ,some dark brown hemp and buttons. To finish up the vintage look, I added a metal key and flower and a few gemstones.
That's my card for today... thanks for stopping by!
