Peaceful Trek


My card today is for 2 challenges.  The sketch challenge can be found here.  The 2nd challenge is

the Wednesday Rubbernecker Blog Challenge hosted by Design Team member Bev Gerard called

Nix the Ribbon.  We were to use fibers, cording, thread etc. No ribbon allowed.  Come play along!

The Winter Trek image is Stamp Oasis and was embossed in silver on glossy white CS.  The layer was

brayered using Kaleidacolor Blue frost ink.  The Peace text is Rubbernecker and was stamped in

Adirondak Denim pigment on CS Vellum, die cut usingthe smallest curved rectangles die from Spellbinders

The edges of the vellum was sponged withencore Silver ink and then dipped in silver EP and heat embossed. 

I die cut the same size and offset the navy layer under the vellum.  Be sure to stop by the Rubbernecker

website to take advantage of the awesome sale going on now.  Have a wonderful Wednesday!
