Camp Create: Watt's Up?
My Favorite Things is having another week-long session of Camp Create on their blog. This is going to be fun! Yesterday's challenge was Fantastic Foiling, which set me aback at first because I don't own a Minc machine, but the actual assignment was to use something shiny. Whew! That I can do! I pulled out some silver adhesive-backed foil, the Watt's Up stamp set, and Lightbulb dies.
Love it! For the background, I cut Harvest Gold and True Black cardstock with the Ray of Sunshine die by Taylored Expressions. I sponged Harvest Gold ink in the center just on the Harvest Gold pieces so it would look like the lightbulb was glowing. Then I pieced it all together and glued it to a white card base.
I cut the lightbulb from white cardstock and sponged Lemon Tart ink in the center to make it look like it was turned on. I got that idea from a card by Karen Giron. It works well with the sponging on the background too. The narrow black lines suggest movement and really draw the eye in. I love the effect!
I cut the lightbulb filament and base from silver adhesive-backed foil, backing the base pieces with Soft Stone cardstock for additional dimension. Once I assembled the lightbulb, I glued it in the center of the Ray of Sunshine background. I embossed my sentiment on a Fishtail Flags Layer STAX die cut using black powder, which adds additional shine to fulfill the challenge requirement, and added it to the top of the card. Here's the badge I earned!
