Craft Stamper TIMI August Challenge Reminder



Hello Friends :)

I am back with a wee reminder of our August TIMI challenge - Take A Technique. You have to use your pens and pencils on your project this month.  I made this card and used my fine liner pen to create a border around the edge.  There is so much you can do with this challenge, all you need is your imagination.  So grab your pens and pencils and create something beautiful.  There is a great prize to be won a lovely stamp plate from Chocolate Baroque.  All of the details are over at the Craft Stamper Blog.

I made my card using a sentiment from the Unity Fly With Wings of Hope stamp set.  I stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I sprayed my paper to make it slightly damp. Next I sprinkled on two colours of Brusho. I chose turquoise and cobalt blue. I love the way both of the colours blend into each other and left this crazy pattern behind.  I dried it with my heat tool and then used my fancy scissors to cut around the edge of the card. Next I punched some of these lovely white butterflies using my Martha Stewart 3 in 1 Butterfly Punch. I glued them on to the card leaving the wings pulled up slightly. Then I attached it to a white card base. Finally I used my fine liner pen and just squiggled a rough border around the edge.

 I hope you like my card and you come and join in the challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

  4. That background is amazing!! I just got Color Burst pigment powders from Ken Oliver so I'll be able to try this technique. Have you tried these powders? If so, how do they compare to Brusho?

    Again, beautiful card! Thanks for the inspiration! :)

    1. Thanks Frexygirl :) I have not tried Color Burst so I cannot compare them. I hope to get them soon though.
