As promised here is another swap I'm taking to San Antonio in January...
Just Believe (pg 109) is a great stamp set! Here I used Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive markers to color in the foilage image, spritzed it with some rubbing alcohol (to give it a real watercolor look) and then stamped it on a 3" circle cut out of whisper white cardstock. The edges of the circle were sponged lightly with Elegant Eggplant ink.
Old olive cardstock was embossed with the Finial Press Embossing Folder (pg 219) and then wrapped with a piece of elegant eggplant 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon (pg 195).
I love this ribbon that is listed as "dotted" ribbon but the reverse side is a solid color. The verbiage is from Petite Pairs (pg 164). The card base is crumb cake.
Counting down to Leadership in San Antonio in January. Still have more swaps to make and so little time.
I was asked what I used to hold the recycled soda cans to the cards. I use a liquid glue for these type of layers ... Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive. This is not a Stampin' Up! product, but it's something I've used for years and it really does dry quickly and holds very well! If you decide to use it, though, make sure it doesn't seep out the sides of your layers. It DOES NOT dry clear and will ruin your project if not careful.
Back to my technology challenges ...
