Be you (with a lot of embossing powders)

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to our new monthly challenge.
Irit is here with some  embossed inspiration.
This month we challenge you to use Fabric (any fabric as you can see from my project).


This is a new Mixed Media piece I made for WOW! Embossing powders Fabric monthly challenge.
My fabric is canvas I worked over and I tried to use some different mediums and to add embossing powders over those mediums to see the results.All mists are from LSG.
All chipboards and masks are from Tando Creative and I used black gesso, glossy accents and white molding paste to add a lot of embossing and to check the results.
Well, it works great over the black gesso: we  still see the black colour, but then it gave us a textured look and made the gesso mask very visible.


The " blood drops" over glossy accents are less visible, but still gave a good  textured result.
Adding powders over wet molding paste gave the most visible texture (the outer frame splashes were made this way).


Then both the chipboard frame, words and all arrows were covered with WOW! powders and I really  like this not so perfect coverage. I even added some inking over the edges to make it even more imperfect.
And here is a list of powders I used for this project:
Fluorescent blue
Opaque pastel blue
 Green Pearl
Primary Apple Red
Copper Pearl
 Pearl Gold Sparkle
Now it's your turn!
Play with our monthly challenge- Fabric- and you can win some great goodies. All you need to do is to use heat embossing or one WOW!  other product to enter.
See you next month with more inspiration.

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…
