Today is a new challenge for us at The House That Stamps Built and it's one of our followers favorites, Anything Goes.
I'm always in need (or so it seems) for male birthday cards, so that's what I decided to create for the challenge this week.
I created this card by first stamping the Mason jar RI#9701-S "Jar With Lid", on a separate panel of white card stock. I then colored it with Copic Markers. I then stamped the ship RI#9508-J "Ship (in a bottle)" and colored that with Copics as well. After fussy cutting the image I then ran it through a bubble embossing folder for "texture". I wasn't pleased with the raised bubbles so ran the image back through the die cutting machine just between the embossing plates. This flattened the raised bubbles and I liked it much better.
I stamped the jar image a second time on some fun foam and cut the shape out and placed it behind the colored image so I could lift the image off the background layer, giving it demension. I stamped RI#2501-H "Happy Birthday From..." (using only a portion of the stamp) in VersaMark ink and heat embossed white ep to make it pop. For some fun detail I added clear Nova Chrylstal drops.
Come on over and play along with our ATG challenge. The details on how to enter the challenge, and what you can win, are at THE HOUSE.
