MFT Creative Olympics – Crafty Biathlon

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with my last card for the MFT Creative Olympics. Event #3 is called Crafty Biathlon and we had to choose a technique and a card type to make our projects.

From the list I chose Emboss Resist and Shaker, here is my card:

I stamped the Watercolor stripes background stamp with Versamark ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock and used Hero Arts White satin pearl embossing powder. After heat setting it, I added Distress Oxides (Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber) to have a gradient effect. I die cut a stitched rectangle and also the word You. I used black Staz-on ink to stamp my sentiment on the embossed part.

I backed the panel with acetate and created my shaker wells using 3D foam tape. I separated the letters as I wanted to add 3 different coloured microbeads along with some red heart sequins to match the distress oxide inks I used. I glued the card base on the panel and my shaker was ready.

First I thought I would add die cut flowers to the front but then I came across the little sheep from Ewe are the best set and had to use that. I coloured it with Copics and added glossy accent to the heart and used a black glaze pen on the hooves and eye.

I will submit this card to the MFT Creative Olympics Challenge and to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Add a die cut.
