SumMore Fun - Mood Board Challenge #19

Hello & Happy Friday Everyone!
Today... starts another FUN Challenge over at: 

 YAY! I know how you
guys enjoy a good Challenge!

Our Mood Board is -- TRY SOMETHING NEW

 You can use the Mood Board or go by the Theme
or Use the color combo or Use all 3!!! You don't have to use
a stamp from SumMore Fun if you don't have one!

All the rules for this fun challenge are RIGHT HERE!

Here's what I created to inspire you --

I decided to try something NEW to ME! I've NEVER EVER tried
the BABY WIPE Technique - So, I watched a couple of videos
and then felt good enough to try it myself - I started with a stamp --

I really didn't like how it came out so then I thought???
Hey, I can just use this baby wipe on some
Watercolor paper!! Right?? Maybe?? Let's see....

And so I did use the baby wipe method on some watercolor 
paper, I used Distress Re-Inkers (Peeled Paint, Dried Marigold,
Worn Lipstick, & Scattered Straw)
Dabbing my Baby wipe all over the watercolor paper
then proceeded to spritz some water on the watercolor 
paper - to help mix it up a little more
and the background you see here is what I got!

I ended up liking how neat it turned out - so I dried
my watercolor paper completely and then sprayed it with some
Sheer Shimmer Frosted Spritz - I LIKE SPARKLE!!
Then I needed a little bit more so I added some
Splatters of Distress Spray in Tarnished Brass
Once that all dried, I REALLY LIKE my background
I thought it was so NEAT!

So, then I thought what else can I do???

I've NEVER EVER Embossed on ACETATE Before -

and I bought some acetate that's designed for
heat embossing but never tried it until now!!

from Victorine Originals and stamped it on some
Heat Resistant Acetate (Crafter's Companion)
using my Versamark ink, then using some
Super Fine White Embossing powder to cover over it -
shook off the excess powder
 then pulled out my Heat tool and away I went!

And it turned out so PRETTY! EEK! 
I didn't want to cover up my cool background so
I used a label shape die I had to cut out the
Happy Birthday Sentiment, then used that same
die to create a thin frame around the sentiment -

I didn't add anything else to my card, because I
thought all that color was so pretty and didn't think
I needed anything else to add!

Of course I did the inside of my card as well --

I didn't use any special techniques, but I used that
Pretty BEST WISHES Stamp from Victorine Originals
along with a flower & Gem from my stash!

I hope you guys can join us --
 I would LOVE to see what you create!

So glad you're feeling better, Theresa, and please know that you don't have to comment on every blog post! That starts to become a chore. Only comment on the ones you absolutely LOVE!

Your card is fabulous! Love the background. So happy you tried new techniques. That's always fun. I've been trying new techniques in my knitting and having a blast!

Have a good weekend!

Fun technique!! thank you for sharing and I love embossing in all forms!

Beth F. said...

I have never done the baby wipe technique either and I love the idea of being able to spritz it with water to blend the colors a little more. The heat resistant acetate would be a gun medium to use as well. A very lovely card, Theresa!

Super cute card! The background looks awesome! I am happy to hear that you are feeling better! I have been in the same boat as you, on vacation and then ended up being sick! I'm trying to play a bit of catch up but hope to be back to the swing of things next week!
