Okay, so I actually got my mom's bday card done early!! This one is for Simon Says Stamp Challenges Blog---Girly Card. Think this one qualifies! I have recently gotten distracted w/a new obsession---metal!!! Been watching Ten Second Studios' Taco Tuesday archived videos like crazy---it's like potato chips, once you watch one you have to have the whole lot!! Anyway.....this is what I came up w/for Mom.
This is actually done w/faux metal as I am still waiting to get my metal by Ten Seconds. I embossed the 'metal' with Sizzix Embossing folders and inked w/Watermelon Alcohol Inks by Ranger. The main pink card is spritzed w/Perfect Pearls using a Mini Mister before layering other pieces. The middle piece was done by inking the edges of pink cs w/Worn Lipstick Distress Ink then background image was stamped and embossed w/white embossing powder. The decorative corners were embossing w/Cuttlebug ef and punched out w/EK Success photo corner punch. The borders on inside message were done w/Fiskars Heart Border punch. I inked the silver heart brads w/the Watermelon Alcohol inks (per Sheryl's suggestion) and doodled a bit w/a white pen (again, per Sheryl's idea).
