I hope you are all having a good week. I wanted to make something for this month's Craft Stamper Take It, Make It Challenge. This month you have to use the embossing resist technique. If you know me you know I LOVE to emboss. So much so that I had to go and get a new heat tool this week. My old one was dying!!
Anyway on to my card. I absolutely LOVE Anne of Green Gables. I still have the DVDs and all the books I was gifted many years ago. I have yet to make my trip to Prince Edward Island but it is on my list to do so. I picked up this book at the dollar store month's ago. I wanted to use it more for quotes for my cards. But then I got the idea to rip out a page and actually stamp on it.
I first stuck the page to a piece of card then very lightly went over it with gesso. I then stamped my images and heat embossed them with white and silver embossing powder. I would usually wipe the excess embossing powder away with a small brush. But I wanted that messy kind of sea spray look you get when you little bits behind. I heat set it and left it to cool. Next I took 3 different distress inks and wiped them on to my craft mat.
I added a little water and then just worked the ink on to my card. I built up the colour until I had the look I wanted. Then wiped off the ink from the embossed areas to leave clean images.
Once it was dry I added some tiny butterflies. I then typed up the quote from Anne herself and printed it out. I wanted it on white paper and not the the yellow book paper or I would have used it from the book. I cut it out and glued it on the card then mounted it to a white card base. I really like the way it turned out. Thanks so much for visiting.
