Well every now and then there's a bit of delightful randomness thrown in. Like this one I got this week:
That's right - the world's largest cup of coffee.
I was tempted.
Or this one, which is even more me!
Now speaking of resistance, today is the second MIX-Ability challenge and the technique is emboss resist!
Now I told you that my goal is to make CAS mixed media cards, and so that's what I did for today's challenge.
I actually did TWO kinds of resist - acrylic resist and ink resist over clear embossing.
First, I stamped the larged heart from Hearts a Flutter with Versamark on Whisper White and then I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I rubbed it with an Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber in Willow, and then wiped the paint off the embossed portions. Then I took a sponge and rubbed Bermuda Bay Ink on top of that and again cleaned the embossed parts.
I used the paint to give it a little variegated look, since one color is so... well, one color, and also to add a hint of yellow to match the Summer Starfruit I used on the rest. The paint is almost identical to Summer Starfruit.
Then I cut out the hearts with the Hearts a Flutter framelits, added some linen thread and boom - resistance is futile!
