Freshly Made Sketches Challenge 132
Soooooo.....once again, I sneak in just under the wire. You'd never know that I spend the majority of time on these sketches, I bet. Actually, I average 4 cards per FMS challenge. I send them to my friend SP, who says "Love it, Hate it (or) Wait until my Tylenol 3 kicks in...I've got to be on SOMETHING to stare at your creations for longer than 3 seconds."
You've got to love someone fearless enough to be honest!! :)
If you go back several posts, you can find the person to blame for my heated copper obsession. I ran some sheets through my Big Shot using my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die, then took the heat gun (along with my safety and well-being) into my over-caffeinated hands and BAM! We have my focal point!
Heated copper isn't difficult. It just takes a while for the copper to heat up and produce the colors above. But I think it's worth it, in the end. MAN, I love the look! You can also dry emboss it! It's a terrific addition to a card...ANY card.
I used Mother Teresa's saying from SU! Inspired by nature and a sheet of actual cherry wood from Mixed Media 101. I took a piece of organza ribbon and a piece of jute and knotted it on the PTI Rustic Cream Cardstock.
