Another HIMCR Freestyle Challenge

Hi everyone due to not getting images in time Hiding In My Craft Room is having another Freestyle Challenge. Hiding In My Room is sponsoring the challenge and the prize for one lucky winner will be bundle of crafting goodies..

I decided to do a card I've been wanting to do for awhile using my Chinese Wishes stamps by Hero Arts and a Darice bamboo embossing folder which had never been used.

I used Liquid Metal on the embossed piece. I'll be doing a photo tutorial now that I know that it works later on this month.

The focal image is by Dover it is a sample which is in my stash. I think you can still get samples by e-mail. Originally I was going to cut her out but decided to leave the piece as it is.

I used Japanese Calligraphy paper for my wishes stamps. It is a thin paper and easily wrinkles but takes ink nicely. Also I love the little bit of texture it adds. After gluing my focal piece on the paper I used adhesive trim I found at Dollar Tree on the corners to adhere the panel to the card. I wish I could find more of this trim. That is the only thing about buying Washi tape and trims for crafts at the Dollar Tree it is difficult to find something again that you really like.

I'm off to start on next week's challenge. Hopefully there won't be a problem with those images.

Wishing you Health, Longevity, Love and Good Luck this year. Also wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again.
