Good morning! It’s the first Monday of the month which means we’ve got a new challenge up at Lawnscaping and it’s a fun one! Challenge #113, sponsored by Ellen Hutson, is Texture! You can add texture to your projects in a variety of ways and I look forward to seeing the different ways you interpret the challenge! One lucky winner will win a $25 gift certificate to shop at Ellen Hutson!
I stamped the sheep in Versamark and then heat-embossed them with clear-embossing powder. I also added the light bulbs to one sheep for a little fun and stamped the sentiment with pigment ink and embossed it with clear powder! I colored my sheep with copic markers and then added clear wink of stella glitter to the lightbulbs. I applied a thin coat of glossy accents to the light bulbs and the ram’s horn and then let it dry overnight just to make sure the flocking powder wouldn’t get stuck in the glossy accents. The following morning I went over both sheep with my Zig 2-way glue pen and before they dried I sprinkled them with flocking powder. I tapped off the excess and then resprinkled just to make sure it totally coated my sheep! Then I placed a sheet of typing paper over the sheep and rubbed well to make sure the powder was set!
Next I added strips of patterned paper to the top and bottom of the panel. Then I decided that I didn’t like the edge of the white-based patterned paper against the sheep panel so I added a piece of twine to break up the edges. Finally I adhered that panel to a top-folding white card base and finished it off with a few red satin sequins! I forgot how much fun flocking powder can be…it’s so fluffy and soft!
