This week, our super talented hostess Broni is challenging us to create a card or project using or including something from around the house (FTTC215). You can as creative with this topic as possible! There are so many cool possibilities... safety pins, band aids, stick pins, tape... the sky is the limit!!
For my card this week I started with some paint. Paint in white, teal and grass green. I put a few small blobs on my craft mat.
Then I took a piece of Saran Wrap (a household item!!) and crumpled it into a ball. Then I pressed the Saran Wrap into the blobs of paint. I lifted my ball and turned several times before applying it to my paper.
I took a piece of Flourishes Classic White Cardstock and dabbed my paint dipped Saran ball all over it. I made sure to press the paint into the paper in several different directions so I wouldn't get any true pattern to my paint.
I let my paint dry and then I took some Versamark ink and stamped on my hummingbird and plants from the "Humming Along" stamp set. I sprinkled on my fine silver embossing powder and heat set my image. I then added a little bit of the same paint colours I began with to my image to make them pop!
Next I took a piece of scrap cardstock and wrapped some aluminum foil around it. I secured it to the back side using some tape.
Then I ran the foil wrapped cardstock through sandwiched in a fun hexagon shaped embossing folder. Isn't that cool? The cardstock allows for the foil to remain rigid and keep the embossed design. It's super fragile so be careful when using it!
And here is my remaining card, using the Saran Wrap back ground, my fun stamped image and my foil embossed cardstock!

Sheer Line Edge Teal and White Ribbon. I added a fun "Crystal" coloured KaiserCraft Sparklet to the center of my simple bow!
