Yep, I'm posting a warm, summer, vacationy card in the middle of December... Why, you might ask? Cause it's my blog and I can post if I want too hehehe! Really it's because I really wanted to play along in the Anything Goes Mix it Up Challenge happening on the Sugar Pea Designs Blog and I needed something to warm me up...
Another fun thing about this card is that it gave me a chance to try a technique I have only done maybe once, a year or two ago? To create this card I started by inking a panel with versa mark ink and heating it up with gold embossing powder. I then redid this around four times until the embossing powder was nice and thick. While it was still warm I smooshed the crap out of my pineapple stamp :), and ta-da! I finished it off by trimming it, adding my sentiment at the top with Versafine ink and paneling it in black and pink cardstock. I LOVE it! And while the picture is cool, it is so much cooler in person!
Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my blog today!
