Ok Nina had another awesome card up ...
make sure you check it out
it was a challenge from
challenge #99...by their
newest Challenge Team Member Linda Pekrul...
The theme she has chosen is a "Place in Time".
the rules are easy ...so please stop and give the challenge a try...
Now I know your are to use a photo ...but my printer decide today
 was a good day to run of ink....
so
I
decide
to use this sheet of paper I had for awhile ...

the paper is Gartner - BonVoyage-Map Collection
the paper had that picture of the ship so ..I thought lets go with this ...
I need to learn so much more about embossing ...
on the Welcome Home I used Stampendous-Shabby white
embossing enamel...
I used the old fashion picture corners to age the picture ...
well I can't believe card number 3 ...wow
well I hope you enjoy the card ...
and please make sure you stop by all the blogs.
Have a great weekend

Love the maps! And the embossing enamel is tricky stuff. I have the same stuff - it is gorgeous, but has a learning curve for using it! If you heat from underneath it won't spray around quite as much. I tend to put my project on a folded piece of copy paper, and then heat both things (if that makes sense?) to cut down even more on the blowing around. When it's about 90% melted then I do the last bit from the top to be sure & get it all.
Trust me, those few tips were hard-won by me spilling it, blowing it everywhere, and giving my poor dog a "Shabby Pink" enamel hair-do ;)
Thanks so much for playing along with us this week, Judy :)
