Today I have a somewhat unique card to share with you. In full disclosure, I will say that it's not one that I particularly like, but let me explain. . . It started with the "sunset" challenge from Stamp Ink Paper. Knowing full well that I don't stamp, brayer, or sponge backgrounds, the odds were never in my favor. Boy, do I ever admire stamp artists like Michelle Zindorf. She is ah-mazing!
Soooooo. . . I kind of cheated a bit. Well, I guess that depends on your definition of cheating! I simply used a piece of 12x12 scrapbook paper, cut down to mat size for the background of this card. Voila! Instant sunset. I then heat embossed a sun, added some clouds and a sailboat from gold foil paper. What I DO like is that by using the gold foil paper, it almost appears as though the sun is setting and reflecting off the sailboat. Kinda cool, right?
Supply List: Marina Mist cardstock/Gold Foil paper//Kinda Eclectic stamp set/ Calypso Coral embossing powder (retired)/Heat Tool/Versamark/Embossing Buddy/Big Shot/Mama Elephant Ocean Waves die/Snail Permanent Adhesive/Seaside embossing folder/Stampin' Dimensionals
