TGIF Challenge #TGIFC12 - Awesomely Artisitc

I think the cleaning up in my craft space as done my crafting a world of good because here I am again, two weeks in a row, entering my card into a challenge blog. Or I may just be avoiding my housework. I think it might be the latter. Who wants to do boring housework when there is so much fun stuff to play with?Right? This weeks challenge at TGIF Challenge is to break out your new favourite product and go for it! 

I just received an order last week with a box full of new stamps! Yay, new stamps!!! Just had to break open the set  'Awesomely Artistic'. I've seen some fantastic stuff done with this stamp set and just couldn't wait to have a play.

If you follow me on my Facebook page you will know that this card is the second attempt at this card. I embossed and coloured the flower image on the first card and then stamped one of the other images from this set and it all went downhill from there! It just didn't look right at all! Don't you hate that when you spend ages on doing colouring and you stuff it all up!! 

So I started all over again and, yay, I didn't ruin it! I think it turned out quite pretty. I am a bit of a pink girl after all! 

I embossed the flower image on watercolour paper using white embossing powder and used Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo to colour the leaves and the flowers.

The dragonfly I embossed with Gold embossing powder on Vellum. I have a bit of a thing with embossing at the moment. It is just a bit pretty and it gives you cards another element. 

Why don't you crack open your newest products and have a play at TGIF Challenge too?

Thanks for Stopping By!

  1. I was waiting to find out what color pink you used. I found it. Now on the Aug.18th card, I couldn't find the color listed. Such beautiful cards. I'm trying to make a wedding card for my husband's best friend. My husband says, " Don't make it plain". I'm trying to emboss, but for some reason my stamp won't stick to my clear blocks. So when I do stamp I end up with double tamp look. Not what I'm going for in a wedding card. I'm also in an embossing kick. I love the way it looks. Thank you so much for all the beautiful ideals you share with us. I for one like them all.
