Hi everybody. I bought this That Special Touch mask - Flying Ducks fairly recently with masculine cards in mind and a husband of one of my cousins has a birthday at the weekend so I decided to give it an outing, its first actually so NBUS!
I had in mind to use some texture paste which I have which is clear gloss. Well, I had three attempts which were all dismal failures so I gave it up as a bad job and decided to use Versamark Ink through the stencil and heat emboss. I used WOW Silver Metallic Embossing Powder on to a snippet of dark blue card and applied it through the stencil with a piece of blending foam which worked well. I did need to tidy it up a little and there were inevitably a few stray bits but it was OK.
I also used a Creative Expressions Embossing Folder called Checkboard Pinpoint and embossed a snippet of orange card which at first I wasn't sure about as it was a very bright colour, but once embossed and adhered to the base card with the dark blue card on top looked fine.
I had a space at the bottom which I decided to fill with a new NBUS Petite Striplet die called Tiled Squares. I cut a strip from a snippet of dark blue card using the outside die and then cut the inner die using a snippet of orange, and layered the two together
I finished by stamping a sentiment with Versamark Ink and heat embossed using the WOW Silver Metallic EP using another snippet of the dark blue card, and cut it into a double fishtail banner and placed it over the Tiled Square.
Thank you for looking at my blog today.
I am entering the following challenge:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop - Week 232 where we use up our snippets of paper and card etc.
Uniko Challenge - No 32 Masculine with the Optional Twist of Father's Day which I didn't do.
