Craft Stamper Blog Challenge!

The latest Take It, Make It challenge over at the Craft Stamper magazine blog still has another couple of weeks to run, so you still have plenty of time to join in!
The technique this time is a really fab embossing powder technique.....creating backgrounds using just coloured powder!
I have created another sample to show you....
I sprinkled the powders over the circular card base, and just kept melting, sprinkling and melting until I got the look I was after....
(That rub on phrase is very meaningful for me this week..... I have never sat on my hands, held my tongue and simply stepped away from the computer as much as I have the past few days....It's flipping frustrating when you know people are spreading falsehoods, but to correct them is stepping waaaaay over the professional line, and I have to simply wait for time to reveal the real situation. Ugh.)
Enough of me being all cryptic.....
I added the white embossing powder detail by sponging Perfect Medium through a stencil for the powder to stick to!
Butterflies stamped onto acetate were my focal images....
I finished off my hanging by adding a large eyelet, and then threading some suede thong through the hole.
It would be totally fabulous if you popped on over to the Craft Stamper blog and had a look at all the details of the challenge, then joined in! There are some gorgeous stamps to be won, and the entry the DT thinks fits the bill the best will get published! Not something every challenge blog out there offers eh?!!!
Love Trish xxxxx


  1. I absolutely love this Trish. I might need to dust off my embossing powders and give it a go.

    Well done for stepping back - its not easy to bite your tongue but Im sure it will prove worth it in the end

  2. So cool! I bet the texture is fab from all those powders. And I have tons of e.p. guess what I'll be trying this weekend! Now I'm off to check out the blog for the challenge deets. Thanks Trish!

  3. thanks for the technique...must try it soon! hope it comes out as pretty as yours!

  4. Utterly beautiful Trish, this isn't as easy as you have made it look so bravo - especially to get such a perfect blend, just look at those fab colours!! Butterfly is my favourite image/embellie of all & yours really are the focus, love them! The way the white came out looks amazing & cool to see circular card base.
    As to sitting on your hands & stepping awaaay - I know from personal experience how hard it is, 'every part of you wants to'... You are totally doing right thing but you know that!! It'll come good just because you are being the better person, hang in there, we are all behind you!!
    Anywaaaayys..... Certainly not affecting your creativity (that's gotta give a sense of 'rising above'), glorious piece!! :)))

  5. The embossing powders are just glorious - what a beautiful background... and I applaud your "rising above" - though I've no idea what it's all about. A truly inspiring make, Trish.
