Emerald Creek Dare Guy Style

Hello there! I am a guest designer for the Emerald Creek Dare blog this month. The challenge is to create a Guy Style project. 

I decided to go for a motorbike themed card.

I will show you the step by step. Lots and lots of Emerald Creek Craft Supplies were used. 
I used two stamps and 10, yes TEN different embossing powders! 

Here the process of how I made my card:

I inked the top half of my card with my embossing ink dabber, and heat embossed with Northern Lights embossing powder from the Allure range. Next I inked a strip along the middle, again with my dabber, and heat embossed it with Dirty Sand from the Baked Texture selection. And last but not least I inked the bottom part and used the Rocky Road Baked Texture granules to create my asphalt. The pics don't do any of it justice as you cannot feel how real this feels and looks!

After it all cooled down I stamped a skyline with the Aldergrove and Summer Camp stamps. I used a permanent ink as that is suitable for stamping over non porous surfaces like heat embossing. After the ink dried I "coloured" over each tree with an embossing pen. I did tree by tree as I used various embossing powders to "paint" my trees. I used Forrest Folliage and Ammo Camo from the Allure collection and Vintage Ivy from the Era range.

I love how they made these trees come alive!

I die cut and dry embossed the motorbike and then took my embossing pen again to "paint" it. The fenders and gas tank are Hammered Metal from the Era granules, the seats are done with Mercury Rising from the Allure powders and the rusty bits... you guessed it, I did those with Chunky Rust Baked Texture. I tell you, once you played with all these... you wonder how you ever did without them!!!

I glued my paper doll and stuck my bike on the card and for the sentiment I used a Tim Holtz embellishment that I "antiqued" with Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture granules. 

And voila, you have a guy style card!

 Thank you for stepping by and taking the time to have a look.

Take care and keep your craft on.

Crafts Dreamy Challenge May

Hello dearest visitor,

Today I share my project for the Crafts Dreamy Challenge Blog that I am a design team member of.

We have a monthly moodboard for inspiration. 

This is this month's moodboard. Inspured by the sea.

This is the card I made. I decided to make my background using various embossing powders from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies. I made the beach with Dirty Sand powder, the water part is Deep Sea powder and the surf and sea foam is Soft Fallen Snow powder. The sentiment, starfish and shells are covered with Vintage Beeswax powder and the coral with Spiced Candy. I stamped with various colours of archival ink and coloured with distress markers. 

Thanks so much for stepping by and taking the time to read my post. I hope to see you again.

Take care and keep your craft on!
