RSS challenge #14

Here's my card for challenge #14 at Ready-Steady-Stamp!

Here's the recipe for this challenge:

And here's the card I made:

The word Friends is metal, and I heat embossed it with copper embossing powder.
I've used a border punch on the photo and inside the card. I've used stamps from the Tim Holtz, Prima Marketing and Norsk Stempelblad.

I didn't like the look of the funky foam star, so I had to think of something to make it fit my project. :P
I heated it with my heatgun, and put it inside a Quick Kutz Goosebumpz folder while it was still hot. That gave the star a nice embossed look. (-And my arm a pretty good burn.. Don't place your arm on a heatgun seconds after you've used it..! ;P )

Then I inked it with Perfect Medium and added copper colored Perfect Pearls. :)

Thanks for looking! :)

Hi Ruth. Love what you've made and glad to see you did some altering too. I altered my funky foam with paint as it was purple!
