Did you know that the folks over at the Winnie & Walter blog are sti-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-lllllll celebrating World Card Making Day???? That's why they are calling it World Card Making Week! They have a ton of fun challenges each with coooooooooool prizes that are still open through Saturday evening!!! I am so delighted they are doing this because I did not have a chance to make any cards last Saturday.
Aaaaaaaaaaaand.......to add icing to the cake, there is also a chance at their Grand Prize of a $50 W&W Gift Voucher if you enter at least 3 of the 7 challenges with a different card for each. You do not have to use any of their products, although it would be wonderful if you do.
That's still not all........If you don't have a chance to enter the challenges, you can still enter their comment contest by commenting on each of their WCMD posts!! How cool is that????
One of the challenges is a super-easy one: A WCMD Craftie!!! All you have to do is take a shot of your craft room or table with a WCMD craft in progress, or perhaps one of you and/or your crafty pals working together, or something similar for WCMD. This counts as one of the three challenges for the Grand Prize contest!!!
So here's my craftie:
I am in the middle of heat embossing the living daylights (whatever those are!!) out of a piece of cardstock for what I hope will be an entry in the Pattern Play with Shay challenge. :)
This beleaguered piece of white cardstock has had a bunch of techniques exacted upon it......and I love it more and more with everything I do to it! It started out as one of my reject backgrounds in this MFP challenge. I put distress inks on my Darice Henna embossing folder and put it through the Big Shot. I loved the colored and textured pattern, but it lacked something. So this week I decided to begin adding rusty bronze and copper metallic embossing powders to it......over and over.....till I saw that lovely metallic sheen that makes my eyes glitter and gleam. @@
Here's a shot of my background after I got all the heat embossing done:
My camera is not capturing all the gleam in this, but I hope this angled shot gives you a little idea of how shiny it is:
|Now I just need to make a card from it!!!!! :)|
Thank you for the honor of entering this craftie in the following challenge:
