Howdy! I'm back to making cards again. I kinda took a break during the creation of Looking4Challenges. I saw some colors I haven't tried before in the challenge for The Play Date Cafe, Splash of Red with black and white neutrals. And at The Case Study we have been introduced to Guest Designer, Julie Lacey, and her clean style. Oh, clean is so hard for me!
My Red Halloween Card
I've done a very old technique with the Scarecrow, Wet Embossing. I first did one of these 8 years ago while scrapbooking. I've taken a brass stencil and Artist Medium (clear thick gel) and created a dimensional image. You squeegee the paste over the design openings of a taped down stencil. Carefully peel away and toss over the glitter. Shake well and enjoy the detail!
Recollections Black Cardstock
