Back to School

Hello everyone who was waiting a whole week to join our new 
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Here we are then with 


As always you can win a $50 voucher and spend it

My card is a special one cause dedicated to my lovely son 
who is starting the last grade at the Technology College. 
This will be a tough year with the matura exam at the end 
and a hard decicion of which high school to go. 

Anyway, he's studying cooling technology at an electric college 
so the Inventor 2 stamp set is just designed for him, don't you think? 
The word in the center means: discover...

I started with die cutting my lately favorite Mixed Media 6 die set 
in a watercolor paper with previously stitched the edges. 
Since I do not have enough space to store my sewing machine on hand
I take it out sometimes and make lots of stitched card bases for future.
This was the case as well. 

Then I just played with touching the base to my craft mate 
where distress oxide inks and water were applied.

After that I placed my base onto one of a TH Crowded Attic paper 
to have some interesting background beneath 
and started to stamp and emboss. 

I stamped the bulbs with Distress Oxide Black Soot ink and applied 
SSS clear embossing powder, heated it up and played again 
with oxides to color the background. 
Stamped another pair of bulbs, filled the inside with 
TH Distress Wild Honey spray and fussy cut them 
placing one on another with a 3D foam dots.
