Hope everyone enjoyed all of the fun this past weekend. I know I did -- I still need to visit many of the wonderful works of art everyone has posted for all of the challenges.
Today I incorporated three challenges plus today's tutorial regarding glitter. I usually don't use any glitter for our OWH cards except I have done two cards now with some glitter. OH NO!!!! you say -- but wait! -- I did cover the glitter so it couldn't escape -- much like Sandy did in her glitter video. I used glitter under my stained glass technique for first challenge in the VCMP and today I put it under my velum. It sparkles a little, but you really have to look. I used it on the candle tips for the flames on today's card.
Today's card is for the OWH Bonus Sketch on Monday - Fawn Lawn Week making cards for our service members to send home to their kids. I checked out their stamps and they are really cute - unfortunately I don't have many kid type stamps nor do I have any Fawn Lawn stamps (for now anyway). I did find in my stash of stamps a set that I received some time ago from the Cardmaking magazine designed by Adam Pescott - so I used one of these stamps.
In addition to the OWH and Lawn Fawn challenge I am also entering in the The Lollipop Ladies fortnight Challenge 53 - Sherbies and Embossing. What is a Sherbie you ask? It is an Australian candy with a orange and blue wrapper. I found this Challenge from an invite I received on my blog from Lauren whose blog is Let's Get Messy!
On today's card I used three embossing folders - Perfect Polka Dots and Fancy Fan both from SU and Happy Birthday from Provo Craft. I heat embossed the image on one velum and on the reverse side I painted and placed the glitter.
Thanks for stopping in and hope you have a great week.
