Hey everyone! I’m really enjoying being a designer for Makeesha’s challenges. They are so much fun and challenges are soooo my thing…LOL! This week was just a teency bit hard for me, so unfortunately it is not absolutely fabulous. I love it when something comes together so easily, but alas this one was not coming together for me too well.
Here is the inspiration pic-
Here is my submission-
I must admit though I did learn something new! For myself anyway, I, by no means, am saying that this is my own idea, I’m sure someone else has done it. But I have not yet heard or seen it before.
What happened was- I was thinking that white embossing powder would be too bright for the leaves. Going by the pic they seemed a shimmery white. I also thought that Clear would not be bright enough, so in a light bulb moment I decided to mix the two together. I thought this is either going to rock or it would be a disaster, especially wasting embossing powder by mixing them. But you never know if you don’t give it a go…..right?
So the result……I loved it! The texture it gave was wonderful and it even looked shimmery because in spots you could see through the embossing to see the colour below. Here is a close up-
Cool hey??? I’m not too sure about the rest of the design though….it seemed a little ….blah to me. What do you think?
