Embossed and Sparkly

Tuesday, 6 October 2015

Hello Friends !

Sharing a CAS card after quite a long time. Actually it seems like ages, if you ask me !!  About a year ago, I was bubbling with ideas and made at least one card everyday and shared on my blog too!  And here I am now, completely down on mojo, struggling to find time and ideas for making even a single card a week :( Hopefully, I get my mojo back soon.  Does this happen to you as well ? How do you bounce back?

I think the best way to start again is by participating in the challenges. So, I made a card today inspired by Cas-ual Fridays Challenge#144-Tic Tac Toe and Waffle Flower Challenge for October, where the theme is - Embossing and also Lulupu challenge- Embossing.

So, here's my card:-





  


For the Cas-ual friday's tic tac toe box, I chose to go along with the bottom row--Embossing, distressing and sparkling. 
And i got inspired a little bit from both the sketch and and picture from Waffle flower crafts 
To make this one, I stamped the image from the Penny Black Dazzlers stamp set, using versamark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. It took me many tries to get this one right. After heat embossing, sponged it with two diffferent colours of distress inks and added a few rhinestones for that sparkle. Finally, mounted the white card panel over a kraft coloured card base , tied a silver string and added the white embossed sentiment from Waffle Flowers Bowtiful stamp set.



Would love to hear your views about my card. :)

Thanks so much for visiting and leaving your kind comments.

  11. I'm so glad you were able to make this card, hopefully it gave your Mojo a kick in the backside!!! This happens to me quite often, one minute I have card ideas coming out my ears and the next I can't even bear to look at my stamps, so don't worry it always returns. Your card is beautiful and I love the colours you used with the distress inks. And that lacy stamp is gorgeous!! I'm so very excited you joined us at Waffle Flower and CAS-ual Fridays and hope you come and play again!!!
