Crazy 4 Challenges #4

We are on week 4 at Crazy4Challenges and we are all having a blast!
Thank you so much to all of our participants. We are so happy to see that you are enjoying the challenges!
This week, we have another awesome sketch from Cindy Haffner. She can create a sketch like no other!!My card doesn't look nearly as nice in the picture as it does in real life. I hate not being able to capture the glitter on camera!! This card uses one of my favorite techs with embossing folders. I absolutely LOVE to ink the side of the folder that does the background or indented part for the embossing (does that make any sense??) with Versamark and emboss with glitter ep. When done, you have the background all sparkly and the raised areas are plain and it looks so cool. It can be elegant or whimsical depending on how you use it. For this card, I embossed both the white and black panels with the Textile folder and glitter embossing powder...it looks so elegant irl. Sadly, in the picture, it looks quite blah :( I also love the look of a black and white card. It sometimes, we just don't need alot of color! lol
Materials: PAPER-Colormates (WorldWin Papers), STAMPS-Heidi Grace (Fiskars), INK-Versamark (Tsukineko), OTHER-Textile embossing folder (ProvoCraft), Glitter embossing powder, Black detail embossing powder, White satin ribbon
Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to check out what the other C4C designers did with Cindy's sketch this week!!
