Having wracked my brain with thoughts of ice-cream, melted hearts and snow, I had a spark of inspiration as I was going to sleep last night. How about melted embossing powder ... especially ultra thick embossing powder?! I have a big pot of gold UTEE that's never been used.
Keeping it super simple, I embossed 3 layers onto a square of thick cardstock (400gms), and pressed in my bold rose stamp.
Another shot trying to get the shimmer and shine.
Pop on over and be inspired by what the rest of the DT have created :
I'm playing with the wonderful Penny Black Butterfly, Copic colouring for the butterfly and Distress Crayons for the background for this card.
But it's not just a card, it's a gift on a card. The square is actually a coaster that is held on the card by temporary glue. I took some board, glued on the stamped card and sealed it with that auto-stick plastic wrap. With the high humidity here, it was best, and it allows for easy wiping.
I love the fresh green of this Hero Arts Green Hills - just right for spring. The leaf stamps are from Papertrey Ink. For the design, I took up Susan Raihala's challenge to make a fresh take on her basic layout--three images in a line and a sentiment underneath.
Check out the Design Team cards for some great inspiration!
