Arrrr ye mateys, it's Treasure Hunt Tuesday at Rubbernecker. As always, you can find the clue on our home page.

In order to claim your treasure, place your choice of the two images in your cart, and then purchase only one other item.
Our Design Team, as always, will delight you with their creations. Be sure to visit their blogs.
The fern background was stamped in versamark and embossed in clear EP on Vanilla CS. Then, I made an alcohol ink background over the top of the embossing using Latte, Meadow & Lettuce.
With the craft iron set on High/Cotton, iron the embossed image between a sheets of plain white copy paper. I actually use my craft mat for the under layer as it is heat resistant. The embossing will melt and absorb into the copy paper. The result is a faux bleaching with a multi colored background. Cool Huh? Thanks to Bad Sherry for playing around with this while we were demoing in Chicago recently. Love it!
Here's what the iron looks like when collapsed. The handle pops off and slides over the metal base. When compacted, it measures 7 1/2" long and 1 5/8" thick. It also has a steam attachment and comes w/ a carry bag. Mr. Rubbernecker/Dave would love to add one to your Treasure Hunt order today. This is not only the perfect craft iron, but travel iron as well.
Back to the card details. The tags are both Spellbinders dies, the tan one is from the tags trio set. The Green one is from the double ended tags set and I simply folded the top of the tag over the ribbon and secured it with a glue dot. Both tags were die cut and then run through to emboss them. Follow your Heart was computer generated. The main sentiment was stamped in stazon black on CS weight vellum. The back was DTP'd with Distress ink/Peeled Paint. The leafy silhouette stamp was inked in Blanco Opaque White and stamped on the distress ink. Layering the colored vellum on the artichoke CS made the white images pop through. The black was sponged on with Blending Foam and the alcohol ink applicator handle. The strip under the tags & sentiment was stamped w/ the same silhouette stamp in 3 colors of VersaMagic chalk inks on Kraft CS. I used Sage, Hint of Pesto 7 Sahara Sand. It is layered on Caramel CS with torn edges that were sponged with Distress Walnut Stain. Stamps, inks, spellbinders, embossing powder and craft iron available from Rubbernecker Stamp Co.
