July CCC reveal.

Hi there... over at Deborah's CCC post she has reveal all the cards that were made and sent for her monthly Card Chain Challenge.  I had the pleasure of sending my card to Cat in Maryland USA.  I chose to use embossing paste on my card and the theme of Friends

July CCC

I started by using a stencil and some embossing paste to make my background.  I then used distress inks to colour the background and wiped the paste while the ink was still wet to keep it white.  The sentiment is from a Kaisercraft set and stamped onto the white Spellbinders die cut.  Finished with a die cut butterfly.  I also sent Cat the little Kaisercraft set that I used to stamp the sentiment.  I had picked up a number of the word sets from Kaisercraft and got a second set of the Friends one.  Just love finding reasonably priced sentiments.   Always good for RAK for someone.  

And I got an awesome card from Gail in Norway

Dawn, your card is absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful inking on the background and I love the embossing paste flowers! Great sentiment too! Gail's card is so cute and fun - love those fish peeking through the portholes!

I have to tell you, Dawn, the card you sent to Cat is definitely one of the best for this month--just stunning & really stood out in the reveal post! How sweet to include the stamp set with the card--I know Cat will make great use of it. You've inspired me again to use my embossing paste & stencils--if Fritz would just stay quiet long enough--LOL!
