CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Inspiration Photo

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge Inspiration Photo!!!

This month’s theme is Take a Technique: Embossing!!This means using texture paste or embossing paste on your project or using a technique such as embossing, either embossing powder or embossing folders. Anything that gives your project a “touchy-feely” style!!

Take a look at my card:

You lift me up (TIMI)

I am so tickled about this card!  That little giraffe from Wplus9 Party Animal Stamp Set is the cutest little thing I’ve seen lately.

I original colored this image for Kathy’s 30 day coloring challenge this past Wednesday.




I colored this image while on the train to work.  Coloring everyday had made my commute to work that much easier!!

When I was done, I was happy about the giraffe, but not with the balloon.  I used my Derwent Intense Watercolor Pencils with a water brush.  I wasn’t happy with the water brush.  So, when I arrived home I used a small paint brush for a smoother effect.

Totally love how that turned out.

To create the rest of the card:

I embossed my card base with Stampin’ Up! Decorative Dots Textured Embossing Folder.

I fussy cut my giraffe and balloon and adhered the entire piece using 3M foam tape.

I used my Misti to stamp my sentiment that came from the stamp set with My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink.

Nice and easy!!
