KWERNER CHALLENGE # 37




Gee I really loved working with the colours this week!!!! I am so loving the challenge, some weeks are hard and then other weeks the card comes together quickly, which was the case tonight :) mind you I think I just felt like stamping tonight.
I used the stamp set SU Boatloads of love and stamped mainly on coordinating DSP paper to make the boat, paper tolling out different sections on the boat. ( we don't have Baja Breeze so I used Bashful Blue)
Also I added Hodgepodge aged cooper brads and eyelets (that I had stashed in my cupboard).
Don't you love the Giant wide Chocolate Chip Ribbon, I have just started using again the stripped ribbon that I attached to the card using some more HodgePodge, and last but not least I had to add some puff paint to make the smoke from the funnel ( don't you just love watching the stuff puff up when you heat it:)

Have a great night,
Amy

I think this was genious, and it made me buy the stamp set. I was wondering what exactly puff paint is, and how it's used. Is it a form of heat powder that would be used with and embosser? Let me know kyandrach@juno.com
