Twisted Thursday time!

hi all!

i have spent most of this week on my craft room re-organization.  WOW am i exhausted but it is really really nice!  not from a house beautiful perspective but from a functionality perspective – which is really what’s important and it is also a whole lot cheaper!  of course now i will have to get used to where i have put everything.  that usually takes me awhile 😛

i DID clear off a space to make a quick card in the middle of the mess for this week’s Twisted Thursday Challenge on The Outlawz challenge site.  This week is “fave technique” and i have so many it was tough to pick one.  BUT while cleaning up i came across a box i created awhile ago and knew what i wanted to do:

yes the card is super simple but with that background it still rocks!  i got it from the magazine Crafts ‘n Things – LOVE LOVE LOVE that mag!  and it is very simple to do.  simply smoosh your versamark pad onto your cardstock in a few random spots, cover with embossing powder and heat.  next, smoosh it a few more times in different spots and repeat with a different powder.  finally do it one more time in other areas with a third powder.  be sure to leave some of your cardstock uncovered.

i used powders from Stampendous’ Frantage collection which i recently reviewed for Craft Critique – these powders ROCK!  very unique!  i added a couple layers of felt from Felt On the Fly and a fall yoyo on some raffia and finished it off with a glittered skittle in the middle.  i will have a piece on the Clover yoyo makers and kanzashi flower makers on craft critique soon!

i hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
