Pin It


CFC#91: Hi Ho Silver!

It's CAS-ual Fridays time!

I hope you join us for this week's challenge, CFC#91: Hi Ho Silver!
Create a CAS project using a touch of silver!

I immediately decided to use a technique that I haven't for some time.
I'm not even sure of the name of it, but basically you heat emboss with silver embossing powder repeatedly over the same space (I did 5 times), then you stamp your main image into it. The silver embossing powder is thick and soft, so the image goes right into it. I used a Jenni Bowlin feather stamp that was in her kit last month. Then I added that great sentiment and swoosh from one of my favorite CAS-ual Fridays Stamps set, Breathe.
Here's a close-up:

Ready to play with some silver?! 
You might win a prize from this week's sponsor, Ribbons Unlimited!

I can't wait to see what you come up with! 
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Angie, this is an OSCAR worthy card! Super GALA GLAM! I cheered when I saw this card!

Huraahh. Thanks for sharing

So I haven't posted a card yet to HI HO Silver, but I will now. You have inspired me.

I love your faux metal feathers! I haven't used that technique in a while, but it is a fun one and I love the finished look.

I can't wait to stamp again. My stuff is all boxed so I haven't stamped anything in two weeks and won't be able to for the next couple of weeks either and I'm going through withdrawal! ;D I'm living vicariously through other stampers' blogs right now!
