Here is my project:
|Masculine birthday card featuring the Sassy Salutations stamp set and using the Faux Patina technique.|
- Beginning with a 4"x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock, I sponged Daffodil Delight ink all over it. Then I lightly sponged on Bermuda Bay ink, blending the colours as I went. I left some areas a bit more yellow...I liked the depth it created.
- I ran the sponged card stock through the Big Shot with the Alphabet Press TIEF. Then I sponged again, lightly, with Bermuda Bay ink to highlight the raised areas.
- I lightly ran a Versamark pad over the entire surface, taking care to try to only hit the raised pattern. I sprinkled on gold embossing powder, shook off the excess and then heated it with my heat tool. I love the way it turned out!
The star image from the Many Merry Stars set. I stamped it in Versamark ink on Soft Suede card stock and then heat embossed in gold. I die cut it out using the Stars framelits. This brings me to my little clock embellishment. It is from the long-retired Tea Time Trinkets. I wanted something in gold, but the trinkets in that set are silver, so I took matters into my own hands. I mashed the little clock into my Versamark pad and then dunked it into my pot of gold embossing powder. I heated it and...voila...a gold clock!!
The rest of the card is pretty simple...I stamped the sentiment from Sassy Salutations in Bermuda Bay ink and trimmed it into a pennant. I added a few In-Colour sequins to add a little more bling. The card front is mounted on a Soft Suede card base.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
