Like yesterday's card, this one I got to play with another favorite challenge just for fun! The colors for this challenge were definitely a challenge for me. I don't have a lot of gold/silver things, but I do have some embossing powder.
This is the newest color scheme over at The Play Date Cafe and I sat on it for a few days wondering how I could incorporate those colors. Okay, I won't lie to you, when I picked this image from Stampotique to use, it only took me about 6 times to heat emboss the images before I got one I embossed evenly and looked good. After I embossed it with some Shellac Gold EP (from Stamp N Plus Scrap N) I sponged on some Cool Carribean around the image and colored in the face with an E00 Copic marker.
I had to take a side view picture of this card as the image kept glaring at me since it was embossed. I added some layers of Kraft & Cool Carribean to the card. The strip was embossed with the Argyle cuttlebug folder after I had inked it up. I used the Viva Pearl Pen in silver to add a few dots to the card.
Of course I had to combine this challenge with a sketch challenge- the Card Positioning Systems sketch for this week. I eliminated the rounded edges on the card & my image, but followed the rest of the sketch best I could.
