So first I couldn't get into a creative groove, now I can't stop, LOL. This card is for 2 challenges, the first challenge is from Just Add Ink and it is a "Just Add...EMBOSSING! challenge. The second challenges is for Pals Paper Arts and it's a Wedding Theme Challenge.
Since Just Add Ink is an embossing challenge I decided that it was finally time for me to do the Split Negative Technique which you can find the tutorial for it on the Splitcoast Stampers website, or by clicking here.
When you do the split negative you get 2 separate images to work with, so you know I had to make 2 different cards.
For the first card I didn't do any layers, I just attached the split negative directly to the card. For the greeting I also did a split negative, but just with stamping, I didn't emboss. The more I look at this card I think I want to add some white brads to it, hmmmm.
I've seen some cards where they've done a couple layers and it really had a nice look to it. I was going to that with this card, but the problem is that the Medallion is so large and in order to do more layers you have to cut more of the Medallion off, and I didn't want to do that. So, for the second card I did only 1 layer, using Whisper White as my base. I tried it with using Basic Black as my base but for some reason the image didn't seem to pop as much when layered on the white.
Ink: VersaMark, Basic Black, Whisper White Craft Ink
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black
Punches: Word Window Punch
Accessories: Black Emobssing Powder, White Embossing Powder, Embossing Buddy, Powder Pals, Paper Snips, Neutral Brads, Mat Pack, Paper PiercerSNAIL
After I embossed the image is attached it to a piece of plain printer paper. This enabled me to play around with the image before adhering it to anything, and the plain printer paper is very think so you can't even tell its there when you look at the finished product.
Don't have your fan blowing in you're direction when you are using embossing powder, it makes a little mess.
Have a great day.
