This is my card for the Card Positioning Challenge. The image is from Magenta and colored with copics. The pink piece was embossed with a cuttlebug folder. The patterned paper is from DCWV and was a good match for the embossing folders. Brads in the corners of the images. The image is popped up.
This weeks Penny Black Challenge was Shabby Chic. I embossed a whitewash coordinations paper and then sanded it so the back color showed up where the embossing is. The edges of the embossed piece were distressed using the Tim Holtz distressing tool. The image was colored with copics that were more earth toned. Flowers are from Prima.

Stamp Camp has demos every night of the week. After Camp the Challenge is to use the demos to make cards. Here are half of the demos. The others will be posted later.
The demo used on the tool man was the background paper behind him. Acrylic paints were put on a piece of cardstock and then spread with a credit card.
This demo was making shimmer paper. I used a textured black paper and painted a mixture of water and perfect pearls onto it. There was no recipe for the amount of water and perfect pearls. My piece is used as the scallop on the card.
Another demo was using self-adhesive laminating sheets to make snowglobes. decided to use my snowglobe as the focal point on the card.
The Simon Says Stamp Blog Challenge this week was food and drink. Who would think that after doing 110 wedding invitations with corn on them, I would ever want to see another stamp with corn. Colored with copics.
CAS-ual Friday challenge was to use embossing. I did stripes of plastic tape on a piece of white cardstock and then embossed with a cuttlebug folder. This was one of the quickie demos from Stamp Camp this summer. The image is Stampin' Up! and colored with copics. Flocking used for embellishing the hats and earmuffs.
