It's time for the weekly challenge from Our Creative Corner! This week's challenge, hosted by Jennifer Meyer, is to make a card/project using dry embossing.....cuttlebug, brass templates and stylus, Nestabilities, etc. If you don't have any of those tools, try faux dry embossing. There's another giveaway this week...yay!...so be sure to stop by the Our Creative Corner blog for details.
My mom needs a baby shower card for a co-worker. She asked for something neutral in green and yellow since her friend doesn't know yet if she's having a boy or a girl. Hope she likes it!
I followed this week's SCS sketch challenge (SC185).
I ran the white panels through the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, cut the Celery scallop panel with the Nestabilities Scallop Rectangle die and popped it up on a layer of dimensionals, and faux stitched around the outside of the ducky panel with an Old Olive SU marker using the template from my SU mat pack.
The duck was stamped in Colorbox Black ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder, as was the sentiment. I colored the duck with a combination of things: watercolored with Barely Banana and Certainly Celery inkpads (by smashing the ink in the lid, adding water, and coloring with a small paint brush), added the halo around the entire duck and string with a Warm Grey #1 Copic marker, and used my Honey Copic marker for the highlights and the duck's beak.
The inside of the card includes a white panel with a scalloped edge at the bottom, a strip of the green gingham ribbon, and the *new little someone* stamp from the SU Bundled in Love set. The *baby* sentiment on the front of the card is from Papertrey's Mixed Messages set.
