Blog Hop: Shine On!
High Gloss is the name of this month's blog hop over at Nichole's blog for PTI. I immediately thought of layers of color and using the Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE) to gloss up my card. Then, I thought about how neat it looks to emboss a background image before finishing the card. Out came this card from the combination of those two ideas. I embossed the Circle Spirals after cutting one inch strips of four pretty, pretty colors. After embossing the scribbly circles, I covered the entire sheet with Frost Versamark and the UTEE. I wasn't sure how it would look but I love the result. The UTEE looks like raindrops in places because it doesn't cover perfectly since some of it blew off as I was embossing the card. I really like the effect though with the scribbly circles in the background. To take the shine challenge on step further, I embossed the edge of the frame with silver. I stamped a sentiment from Framed Out #2 in the center in Royal Velvet. Wow, What a beautiful purple that is!
