OLW13 Christmas in JulyPosted: July 23, 2010
I have been playing around with Susan’s One Layer Wednesday challenge again this week. It is Christmas in July. I don’t know whether it is just the influence of the sun and summer but I can’t seem to achieve the outcomes I want. Neither of these cards are quite what I imagined. Perhaps the versamark pad needs to be replaced because the gold and silver embossing is not as shiny and striking as I would like.
To create the top card I masked an area around a rectangle, sponged and then embossed the Christmas ball inside, I added the Noel but if I did it again I would like a different word there. For the card below I punched squares out of my post it note and then followed the same process with sponging and embossing. I hope to create something else, so I might be back with another OLW13
