Card for Throwback Thursday Challenge on 'My Creative Time'

I have been following Emma on My Creative Time for awhile now and I was so excited when she started doing challenges!  This week was about Stretch your imagination, however as you can see I didn't use that one.  The challenge was to use Red, blue, and brown.  Here's what came to mind while I was going through my brand new Wall Decor & More cartridge.  I made a card that actually has quite a bit of dimension and lots of layers, and trust me, looks MUCH better in person.  I did some techniques on this card (like wet embossing and inking on the edges of the waves as well as decorating the inside (which is not pictured at the moment).  Anyway, supplies used are paper/cardstock (all scraps so I have no idea what was what), embossing pad and heat gun, Wall Decor and More cricut cartridge, white gel pen, brown marker and lots of glue!

Happy Crafting!

  5. Hi Amanda,

    Love what you did with that cartridge... I have it and should dust it off :)

    Just wanted to respond to your question over on Clearly istamp too... the inks that I used are actually Close to my Heart inks. They are your basic dye inks (instant dry).

  6. I've seen a lot of cards attempting this with that specific cartridge. This is my FAV!
