Hello all my blogging friends!!!!! This week at Digi Doodle Shop's Best we are challenging you to do some embossing! Heat or dry, whichever way you like! We just need to see embossing somewhere on your card!
With a heavy heart I am also announcing that this will be my last post for Digi Doodle Shop's Best. After this challenge I will be stepping down from my post as DT Coordinator. I have truly enjoyed working with the TEAM and Judy and Joy are wonderful to design for! Be on the lookout for a brand new design team and two new coordinators to keep things fresh and exciting!
My hubby's Uncle has a Birthday coming up in the next few weeks and when I saw this glorious image that Joy drew I just knew that I had to Kreate with it and make his card. The stamp is called "Old Man Fishing" I hope he is not offended by the title!!! He does love to fish and I thought it would be magical.
I colored him with my copics and then started playing with my embossing powders! It has been ages since I have used them and I have so many! First his hat, pants and the edges of the dog got a coat of clear powder. That wasn't enough!!!!! I wanted the pond to really look like glass so first of all I took some glassy accents and made some squiggles in it. After that dried I took my versa mark pen and colored the entire pond and laid a thick layer of clear powder on it and once again to the heat gun I went. I did this two more times until it had a nice thick glass like appearance. Stickles were added to the grasses to give that sparkle and I added the background and foreground with my chalks. As the last bit, I took a part of a fishing lure and tied some bright aqua feathers on it and put a brad through it to fasten onto my fish DP. It was kinda fun to go back to OLD SCHOOL and play again with my embossing powders and heat gun!!!
I printed a sentiment for the inside that reads
" Fishing is much more than casting and retrieving and playing your catch. It's the wind in your face,and the sound of wakening birds as the sun peeks over the horizon. It's discovering the magic in each new place and unlocking the mysteries that lurk there."
Have A Happy Birthday!
