ASB product challenge #64

this challenge was to get out your brass stencils and use them. so i did! you can see the challenge here.

started off w/ generic blue-something CS for CB. cut SU Wwhite to stamp on and cut out a scallop, double sided taped it to CS to use as "faux frame" (didn't work, tape wouldn't come off, ended up covering it up with another scallop punch out w/ sentiment). used some foam michaels flowers and 2 flowers from my SU set "mixed bouquet" (retired). all inks are SU, used Ppink, Llavender, Ssaffron, and versamark. stamped flowers, then used
flower brass template on top w/ dreamweaver translucent embossing paste. covered paste w/ lavender & pink glitters
then heat embossed to get paste to harden.

rounded bottom corners, used wide organza around card, layered same size scallop oval (under oval is Wwhite, distressed w/ Llavender, used pink stickles on edges) in the center. sentiment is from SU "love matters" (winter mini '06-'07).

this second pic. shows just how "puffy" the card turned out. i wasn't thrilled with it after the stamping, stenciling, pasting, and embossing, but i do have to say, it turned out ok.

great challenge, thanks ASB!
