Card stock used is Blushing Bride, Early Espresso and Thick Whisper White. The image is stamped on the Whisper White with Basic Gray ink and colored with Watercolor Pencils.

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 124 - Fiona's Masculine Anything Goes Challenge

Fiona hosted this week's challenge.

Masculine cards make me stretch myself.  I've had the stamp set Country Livin' since it came and I'm finally using it.  I thought the boot image would be great with the Faux Leather technique.


I heated tan fun foam with my heat gun until it started shrinking and was shiny, I pressed the stamp,  inked with Early Espresso ink, into the hot fun foam. It leaves a debossed image in the fun foam. I cut the fun foam and a piece of Dapper Denim cardstock with the largest circle Stitched Shapes Framelits(the fun foam shrinks that much). 

The card base is Thick Whisper White and the layer is Pool Party sponged with Dapper Denim ink.
I used a thinlit from Eastern Medallions Thinlits and a Circle from Layering Circle Framelits to cut the Silver Foil and the same circle to cut Dapper Denim cardstock. I used a 1" strip of Wood Textures DSP as well as a coil of string I had on hand.

Climbing Orchids

One of the first stamps I wanted for this year's catalog was Climbing Orchids(143723), with the Orchid Builder Framelits(143747). Bundled(145334) you save 10%.


The card base is Thick Whisper White(140272). Layered Flirty Flamingo(141416) and Whisper White(100730) Cardstock. On the Whisper White Layer, I used Embossing Paste(141979) with the brick mask from Pattern Party Decorative Masks(144130). This was my first time using Embossing Paste and I love how easy it is to use and how nice of a background it makes.
I did use a scrap of  Lemon Lime Twist(144245) for the stem. The stem is the branch from Seasonal Layers Thinlits(143751).

I stamped Orchid petals with Flirty Flamingo Ink(141397) on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. The centers were stamped with So Saffron (126957) and Flirty Flamingo inks.  After cutting the images out I curled the edges of the petals putting each flower together with Mini Glue Dots(103683), I popped the images up with Dimensionals(104430).

I left it without a sentiment because I figured I could choose one for the inside when I was ready to give it someone.
