CC3C Challenge 11
Hello, thanks for stopping by at my blog and a warm welcome to all my new followers.
We are now onto Challenge 11 over at Linda Ledbetter's CC3C Challenge. This fortnight the challenge is to use Tim's special Distress Embossing Powders. I can't tell you what to do or how to use them but if you check out Tim's book Compendium of Curiosities Volume 3 on page 52 all will become clear, but you have to use your own copy.
This fortnight the challenge is sponsored by the Sensational Inspiration Emporium with a generous shopping spree of $50, how cool is that ! And if that's not enough you also have a chance of being chosen by the Super Talented Curiosity Crew to win a bumper bundle of Tim's products, kindly donated by Tim and Mario.
For this challenge I had an idea of super glossy meets distress powder as I felt this would show a fabulous contrast and the effects these powders can do. I decided the best die to do this was Tim's Old Jalopy. I cut this out twice in heavy duty black card and glued together ever so slightly offsetting so you would see a little matte at the back edge of the car. I then pressed Versamark onto it and went over it 3 times with clear embossing powder heating from underneath to give a real glossy feel. My husband Chris now thinks I would do a marvellous job of polishing his car - NOT !!! I die cut out my windows in Miri foil card and inserted back into the car.
The effect on the rest of my car you will find how to do in Tim's book. I also used this effect on my cogs and lamppost, using a variety of colours in the distress powders.
You will also notice on my lamppost I inserted mirri foil card, but this time I rubbed a little Rusty Hinge Stazon ink onto it before placing in my lamp. I love how the Ray stencil looks like light reflecting from my lamppost. I applied 3 colours of distress when shading through my stencil.
I stitched around the edges for interest and added a collage with a stamped image, rub ons , fussy cut paper and emphemera to finish.
Thanks for looking at my card and Good Luck to everyone else entering the CC3 Challenges. And a extra big thank you on all your lovely comments.
