I've seen the light too!
My friend Cindy, aka Mothermark had a Tuesday Teapot Challenge on her blog. This week she had a little teapot night light. I was drawn to the little swirly lines on the light. I had also been thinking for several days how to do the Stampinb's challenge. Joanne's challenge was to use dry and heat embossing on a card. I decided that I would dry emboss swirly lines like the teapot. I freehand cut a swirly line. I placed my cardstock on a piece of foam. I used my embossing stylus to trace along the swirly line on the back of the card front. After I repeated the embossed lines, I flipped the card back over and I swiped over the embossed lines with my white craft ink. I then used an embossing pen and gold ep to heat emboss the edges of the card and the sentiment panel. The flowers were stickers that I got from the dollar store. I just had to add a butterfly.I was thinking how bugs are drawn to the light. My butterfly couldn't help itself. The light was just too hard to resist. I was also thinking about Cindy's light. She has such a sweet, creative spirit that we are all drawn into following her.
