CASE-ing Debby Hughes


I have been so inspired by Debby Hughes's mixed media cards and I  because I recently received some new products, I decided to case this card of Debby's.
Here are the steps I took to create this card.
  • On a piece of Bristol card-stock I stamped and embossed Hero Arts 'Friends'  with Pearl embossing powder.
  • Smoosh the card on a mix of D.O. Speckled Egg and Tumbled Glass ink. Continue until happy with colour.
  • When dry,  stencil some Distress Embossing Paste (crackle) in corner of card.
  • Sprinkle some Ranger Platinum embossing powder on parts of still wet panel and heat emboss.
  • When dry,  die-cut the panel. 
  • Die-cut Alexandra Renke Foliage, swipe with Versamark and emboss with Liquid Platinum.
  • Colour some twine with Tumbled Glass Ink. 
  • Stamp and emboss the Inspired by Stamping butterfly on vellum with Liquid Platinum .
  • Attach all elements to mixed media panel and mount  on Curious Skin Stone card base.
I chose not to add a sentiment just yet, so that I could save it for the right occasion. 
Thank you Debby for the inspiration!
