Time for a Gingersnap Creations Challenge

GC61: Chestnut Theme Challenge - Heat

"Think hot thoughts! Create steamy scenes or use hot colors or incorporate quotes about heat, fire, or flame. Don't sweat it!" 
I didn't read all the description, as is my nature. I can be rather impulsive. So I took heat literally. So I used a heat gun. I crumpled up Kraft paper from Paper Temptress and crumpled it again. Then I brayered Versamark over that paper after I unfolded. The idea is the Versamark will sit on the folds. Then I sprinkled metallic blue embossing powder all over it and heated it. This is Gilding. You knew that though right.

I stamped the image from Hearts In Touch #97 HIT Mermaids with versamark and used the same embossing powder. I then just dipped the edge of the image CS in to the versamark and dipped in different ep's and heat set and wala. We have a card. I lurve this blue metallic embossing powder. It's American Crafts Zing. Looks like denim with Kraft.

So after fully reading the project description I was playing with the canvas and this one i just sorta slapped paint in to bead gel and slapped on to the canvas. Love my artsy crafty techie terms? And it reminded me of a blazing sun beating down on the grass. I decided to capture it before I added something to it and perhaps taking away the "heat" element of it. So there it is. Glad you stopped by and don't forget to run don't walk over to Gingersnap Creations to see what everyone has been up to and find out how YOU can become a Ginger Gem!
