I saw a card 'someplace' that fussy cut this ef, and when I read the F4A169 challenge to take a chomp out of our card, I knew this would fit perfectly. I glued the purple cs to the cream card base first, then embossed and fussy cut both layers. I drew colored pencil lines on the inside corner for a little definition and balance. I also sponged the fussy-cut edge with a bit of darker purple, but it doesn't show up well in the photo.
For the Mixability challenge to use glitter under glass, I stamped the flower with Versamark, used black embossing powder, then used yellow Stickles for the flower lines and center. I was afraid the yellow wouldn't show up on the black, but it really stands out. Green Stickles for the stem and Glossy Accents to cover the flower – put it "under glass."
I think I'll use both these techniques again! The only hard part was waiting for the Stickles to dry and then waiting again, overnight, for the Glossy Accents to dry.
