TLC160 - Negative Effects Monday Technique Lovers Challenge


Be sure to scroll down to my previous post and check out the FABULOUS RAK Jens sent me!!

Hey Everyone! Yup, I did another SCS challenge. This time I did the "Technique Lover's Challenge - TLC160 - Negative Effects". The challenge was to ink the negative side of a CB embossing folder and run the cardstock through the machine which then transfers the color on to the cardstock.

Well, being me. . .I decided to do something a little different. I used the Sizzix embossing plate instead. I labeled my SCS post as the Fiskar embossing folder but that was an error. . .I used the Sizzix embossing plate. Oops! I realized my mistake after I posted the card. Oh, well. . .same smell.

Anyway, I inked the embossing plate with white craft ink and ran my cardstock over it which transferred the white ink on to the cardstock.

I then added a bit of glitter by writing over the embossed areas with a glitter gel pen.

As for the SU "Fabulous Flowers" image, I inked it with the SU eggplant envy dye ink, inked the whole image with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I did this 3x and cut out the images and layered them with foam tape. To top off the flower, I used a Making Memories decorative brad. The color combo for this card is SU Lavender Lace and Blue Bayou. The designer paper is by Making Memories. I punched the corners with the SU Ticket punch. To finish it off I added an organdy ribbon and stamped the background with the flower using Versamark ink.


Anyway, when you have the time, stop by my SCS gallery: CardInspired I don't upload regularly but my goal is to work on the challenges so I can step out of my little box once in a while.

I tend to not venture out much and don't know what is going on in the world of stamping. I'm a bit isolated . . .:) LOL! I need to venture out more. I'm feeling a little stagnant so I felt participating in the challenges will bring me out of my little world. I need to step out and smell the coffee once in awhile!! LOL!!


Here's the sketch to the card!!
