Just a fun card today using leftovers I had sitting on my desk.
As many of you that visit my blog know, I save my 'DUDS'. You know, the pieces that haven't worked on a card or just aren't the results you expected.
The blue piece was supposed to be a card front, but I wasn't happy with the way the Brushos dispersed when I sprayed on the water, so I tucked it away.
So, today's the day I will use my leftovers and here's what I did.
I inked the inside of a Darice embossing folder called Henna (the raised side) with Versamark ink, ran it through my Cuttlebug and then sprinkled on clear embossing powder and heat set.
Next, I sprinkled on Brushos and sprayed with water. The clear embossing powder acts like a resist allowing the pattern to show from under the Brusho powder.
Next, I took the negative part of the snowflake (Simon Says) leftover from cutting snowflakes to use on another card that was also sitting on my desk. I stamped this wonderful sentiment from The Stampin Place and die-cut the stitched edge using a die from MFT. Love that sentiment.
Last, I place that over the Brusho inked and embossed piece and was very pleased with the results.
Adding my card to these challenges:
Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES
Addicted to Stamps- MAKE YOUR MARK
My Time to Craft- LET IT SNOW
Addicted to CAS- DIMENSION
I hope you get a chance to use up some of your leftover pieces. So many possibilities.
Thanks so much for the visit to my blog.
