Another blowy snowy day. Our daughter and 2 grandsons, ages 6 and 8, were supposed to come up for a weekend visit today, but they had to drive from Lansing. 127 was closed because of a 40-car accident, and the roads were terrible. Needless to say, they are staying home until tomorrow. So - that gave me some time to play in my craft room. But I would rather have been hugging my babies.
This card was made for the Mod Squad Challenge, which was to use gold on your card in honor of the Olympics.
Here's my card:
I used the stamping with bleach technique, really fun to do. I took a whole bunch or paper towels, folded them to make a stamp pad, placed them on a plate and saturated them with bleach. Then all you have to do is dip the stamp in the "pad" and stamp. Each color of card stock will bleach out differently, and it's best to use dark colors. Here I used Gina K Designs Black Onyx, and it came out this pretty gold color.
The feather is from the Papertrey Ink stamp set, Feather Finery. After stamping with the bleach, I used the dot overlay stamp that comes in the set to gold heat emboss. The greeting is a stamp I got in a grab bag over at StampTV, so I do not know which set it's from. The gold paper I used for the matting is Mercury Glass, by Recollections. I love this stack, it really looks like old fashioned mercury glass and comes in several colors.
That's it for now, thanks for stopping by - and stay warm my friends!!
