I don't know how many of you are fans of Pinterest, but I am seriously addicted! I spotted this card that someone had pinned from A Path of Paper. I fell in love and knew it would be my next project. I'm sure I'm embarrassingly late to the easel card party...I'm always so behind the times. ;-)
Inspiration Emporium blog next Tuesday, so make sure you check back to see how it's done!
Grungy Monday bit! This week we were inspired to use Tim Holtz's Rock Candy products - either Rock Candy Distress Stickles or Rock Candy Crackle paint. It's so hard to see, but my French text flowers are coated with Rock Candy Stickles. It adds such a nice sparkle and also gives the paper a little extra body.
I got the idea for this clip from the brilliant Tammy Tutterow. She is a genius when it comes to altering things with paint and embossing powder. In one of her recent posts she showed us how to paint metal elements using Adirondack Dabbers and then emboss them for an enameled look. So cool! Like most of these pictures, you definitely want to click on it for the larger version.
So many little drawers! This one holds a roll of Idea-ology Tissue tape. It's a perfect fit! I love how well the Idea-ology Hitch Fasteners work as little knobs.
This is another piece I made using the Faux Crazed Enamel. Doesn't it look like a real metal enamel tag? So easy to make!
Simon Says Stamp and Show is Anything Goes, I'm also entering it for that challenge!
Don't forget that Inspiration Emporium also has a challenge this month. The theme is embossing and you could win $50 gift certificate! Read all about it here. Thanks so much for stopping by - I promise I'll be back with some more fun stuff in the next few days!
