Two weeks ago Jules challenged the Prettie Girls to turn trash into treasure. How about if I use trash to make a treasure? Hope that counts! :)
For the trashy part: I took some bubble wrap I had lying around and inked up the bumpy side with Brocade Blue Craft ink. I then laid it over a piece of Kraft cardstock (inky side to the paper) and pressed on the back of the bubble wrap until the ink transfered to the Kraft cardstock - this created a fun crinkled dotted background. I then coated the dots with Iridescent Ice embossing powder (Craft ink was still wet) and heat set to add some sparkle. So the trash isn't part of my card... but I did use some. :)
Other notes: image was colored with Copic markers (although you knew that was coming). A bit of sparkle was added to the belt and boats with Spica pens. Also, all layers except the card base were sponged with Close to Cocoa Classic ink.
I can't wait to see what treasures the other Prettie Girls rescued from the circular filing bin. Have you rescued something? If you did, let me know so I can check out your wonderful creation. Have a great day!
