It's a FIRST!

Mix It Up Challenge Blog

May finally arrived and our new Challenge Blog
Mix It Up Challenge is in full swing with Team A
showcasing their Craft Styles.
It is Team B's turn to showcase ours and
as a REMINDER! to get your entries in
and join in our First Challenge -
It's an Anything Goes Challenge with the
Optional Twist to Emboss.
For all the nitty gritty check it out HERE

Here is how I made my card -
This was my first attempt at using Brusho's
and I had only bought a few so of course I wanted to
'use them all' only 3...
My base is basic black card stock.
The fun began when I added
black turquoise and violet to my water colour paper
and let some magic happen.
Once that was dry I kept on adding bits & bobs here and there.
My rose stamp is from Penny Black - Temptation
which was heat embossed with Ranger black powder.
I think I should have done that first as it
didn't stamp as clear as I would have liked
but I did have other 'stuff' added (gold gelatos) which didn't help.
Next time I will know better!
For a bit more texture I have added
splotches of Inka Gold.
There is a tiny bit of script to the left side which is
from 49 AND Market
Some grunge from STAMPlorations Scribbly Splattery Grunge
Sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping.
Added a stitched sheet of card stock as a frame
and finished with a rounded corner.

Hope you will pop over and support this new challenge
by entering in your Embossed Project.
Thanks for dropping in -
We all love reading comments so why not leave one for me
and the Team while you are over there!

Really nice background. There is a learning curve to the Brushos and it looks like you have mastered it. Great colors and I love the black silhouette of the rose. Beautiful card!!!

All the bits and bobs made for quite an interesting look, SS. I love the Brusho bg and the gold really makes it all pop. The fun part creating such a bg is you never know what you'll get. Beautiful.
