Happy Thursday y'all! It's time for another 4 Crafty Chicks challenge and this week's Hostess is Nance and her "twist" is PINK IS THE NEW ORANGE!! For my card I've used a newer image from Graciellie Designs called STAY COZY. I've also used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #292 for inspiration!
I had lots of fun with this!!!!! First off I decided for some reason that this card needed some serious "shimmer" to go with all of that pink. So I started off with making my own background paper. The digital set comes with a tea bag image so I made it different sizes, mirrored it and rotated until my background paper. But wait, there's more!! lol I printed this with our Laser printer, then ran it through my Laminator (on heat setting) with some Gold Foil. I ran it through 3 times. Just look at how perfect that detailing is! And the shimmer is perfect!!! This was so much fun and way easy! (these next 2 pics aren't very pretty because I took them at night on my work table).
So next up, I colored my mug all up with some Copics, and filled in that heart with some Gold Gilding Flakes. I'm in LOVE! I didn't actually have Gold, so I just picked out some gold flakes from another container of mixed colors I had. EEEKKKKK!!! While I love the look of the gold foil, I love this different look with a little texture!
For the sentiment, I also printed it on the Laser Printer and then ran it through just like I did the tea bags. This piece I only ran through twice (I did this piece first, and after seeing this one I decided to run the background piece a third time). You can't really read it in this picture, but you can see that great shimmer!!
That's it for me, be sure to check out what the rest of the Chicks have been up to,
And don't forget to link up your creation at the Hen House!
