Good Morning this Happy Fathers Day! Poppy (grandfather Steve) is sill sleeping...and I'll let him. This morning at AAA Cards we are launching our 7th game/challenge! We are playing the game called "CREATE". The "CREATE" challenge is one all about techniques...this week we experiment with Embossing Techniques.
We love seeing a bit of pink in the cards and the dare is to use TWO different types of embossing. There's a few types, for instance...Dry Embossing with a stylus, Wet Embossing with paste, Folder Embossing, Powder Embossing, have I missed any? AAA Cards CAS Challenge has 7 artists (yep, I'm one), and we all have such different styles. I've really come to love CAS cards. These "simple:" cards have caused me way more thought in the creation of a card- and I like the challenge!
So, that card above had a few challenges in it's design. I had an idea to carry out....
Card mess number 1, with this card I loved the background. Got that part right 3 times. The ray burst is a different story. I used a clear embossing paste and covered it with lovely clear glitter. Looked white until it dried.
Card 2.....hmmm the first is too clear, I'll use white glitter! Still dried kinda clear- and I messed up the powder embossing.
Card 3. With a little more thought...I added white paint to my embossing paste and covered it afterwards with white flock. Eureka! Got the look I wanted! A vibrant, bright and modern CAS creation.
Please visit AAA Cards CAS Challenge and test yourself with an embossing challenge, it's just so fun to experiment and play with our toys! There's stamp prize this week from BlueMoon Scrapbooking too!
