"The way to get on with a cat is to treat it as an equal --- or even better, as the superior it knows itself to be."
I'm here with #2 in my Birthday Card Marathon for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Happy Birthday. Their Wednesday Challenge is 6 years old and they are giving away 6 prizes this week.....so
You might not realize this about me, but I am a science nut. I have long said that I'm a mad scientist and an alchemist at heart because I love mixing stuff together to see what happens!! Ha. I used to spend hours as a child mixing all manner of household items together. Fortunately, nothing dangerous ever occurred!!!
( I did present a first grade teacher with some "perfume" I had "made". Oh, my....I don't remember what I put in it, but she was a sport and said she wore some when she and her hubby went out for the evening!! And you know what? I bet she really *did* wear a dab of it! You can see what an impression that made on me that I am still talking abt it over 50 years later!!)
Oh, did I digress??? Just wait till I am on Card #5!!
So, with my natural curiosity, you can see why I LOVE embossing powders, right? This metallic card is a mad chemist's dream! I dry embossed some heavy duty cardstock with my Darice Birthday with Dots folder and Versamarked all over it......smush, smush, smush....then I covered it with silver embossing powder and zapped away with my heat gun. I did that two or three times and then started adding copper powder, too. My inner crow....yes, my mad scientist has to move over to make room for the crow, too.....loves anything shiny and gleaming, so I love playing with metallic powders!!
Here's a shot of the words.....
Oh, this was so much fun!!! I kept it completely unadorned to be suitable for a masculine card. I think the metal look is perfect for a guy.
Okay....two cards posted. On to the next.... See you soon!!!
