Regal 4 x 6 Card

Hi there! Yep, I’m back again with another project.  Told y’all I’d been busy, just not able to post my projects.

This 4 x 6 card was done for the Viva Las Vegas Stamps/Gauche Alchemy blog hop currently in progress.  I used the Charred Wood Background stamp from Viva Las Vegas Stamps, Versamark ink, and emerald embossing powder.  I was literally playing around in my studio when I came up with this idea.

This is done on a piece of mechanical board (LOVE IT).  I took my Versamark ink pad and inked my Charred Wood Background stamp, making sure I covered the entire stamp.  After stamping onto my board, I liberally applied emerald green embossing powder,shook off the excess, and then hit it with my heat gun.  I fussy-cut out the woman and the furniture (I don’t remember where I got them from) and using foam squares, “popped out” the furniture from the background.  I used two layers of foam on the woman to make here really stand out.  Next I added white fringe from Gauche Alchemy’s Black Out Mixed Media Color Kit and flat-backed rhinestones and a stick pin from their Banana Hammock Yellow Mixed Media Color Kit.

And there you have it.  A quick and easy 4 x 6.
