CDSWCC17



My absolute favorite part of this card was the idea to try and make the background look like engraved silver. I embossed the background, and then used silver embossing powder and the heat gun to add another layer of silver. I would like to have redone the coloring on the baby charlie, but I'm planting corn this week and NEED to go to bed before the long week ahead. I am so busy this time of year. I hauled beans to the river all last week in the semi, and today worked ground. Gotta pay for the stamping somehow! Well off to bed. BTW. my time is off by 2 hours, It's 10:15 here, Iowa time. When it rains I gotta fix that.
