SoSS #134 - WTF






Edna's mind is clearly blown at the thought of the WTF challenge!!

Me, I do so love a challenge that let's me fly my profanity flag, so having said that, be forewarned, my project is a tad sweary.

This is my interpretation of flying fucks.



I had way to much fun making this card, it was an inky mess and I am also pretty pleased with how it came out. 

That's a crafty win-win in my books!

The image is heat embosses on vellum and coloured on the back of the image.

Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Black cardstock (Recollections)
  • Vellum (Recollections) 
  • Winged Things stamp (Tim Holtz)
  • Alphabet stamp set (Studio G)
  • Versamark
  • Black embossing powder (Recollections)
  • Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door, Spun Sugar and Dusty Concord distress markers (Tim Holtz)
