WATERCOOLER WEDNESDAY CHALLENGE WWC169 - "ALL ABOUT OCCASIONS" CHALLENGE




a
 
 
 
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL YOU WOMEN WHETHER YOU HAVE CHILDREN OR NOT!    HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!
 
 
My challenge card this time is a FUN technique.   I saw this on Debra Smart's blog and loved the finish on the card front.   Thanks Debra!    It is called Brusho on Foil.    My card is on Gold Foil, but also looks terrific on Copper Foil.

Supplies Used:
 
Stamp Sets:  Doodle This (Barouque), Epic Celebrations
Card Stock:  Gold Foil, Dapper Denim, Basic Black
Ink:  Versa Mark, Tip Top Taupe
Misc.:  Gold E.P., Brusho - Yellow, Prussian Blue, Moss Green, Thinlits Expressions - Love, Spritzer, Heat Gun
Technique:  Brusho on Gold Foil
 
This is a really "Fun" card to do.  Just make sure to only sprinkle on each color one at a time and use your spritzer with water often.    Then the fun is when you use your heat gun and you can see the droplets of Brusho travel over your foil paper.    It is fun and easy to do.     Don't forget to check out WWC 169, and see the fabulous cards the Design Team have made for us.    Be inspired!  
Thanks again Debra.   You can check out her blog at http://stampandcreatewithdeborah.blogspot.ca/ 
Happy stamping!   Heather :)

WATERCOOLER WEDNESDAY CHALLENGE WWC 164 - MARSHA'S FEMININE "ANYTHING GOES" CHALLENGE

 
Yesterday was Mom's Birthday.  She is 96 year's young.    I tried to  post on her birthday, but system would not let me import the pictures.    She had an awesome day.   My sister and husband and sister-in-law and brother took her to her favorite Chinese Restaurant for lunch.    She loved the card!     Her vision is very poor, but the bright colors got her attention.

I saw this technique some months ago and I decided to make Mom a "Wow" Birthday card.  It is called a "Cascading  Card".
