Everyday Moodlings Challenge #13: Matte or Glossy

This week's challenge is a bit....well....challenging. :) (Exactly when will Blogger be adding emoticons!)

This week you get to pick between glossy or matte.....or both.

I pulled out some matte paint and Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE) for my matte and glossy products.  I also grabbed a chipboard heart, Spellbinders die, sentiment and black pen.

Read on to learn what I created.

ATC Card-Today My Heart is Free
The inspiration for this ATC came from a recent health scare for my son.  Fortunately everything turned out fine, which always leaves a feeling of relief.  This card is part of my Project Inspiration wall.  You can read more about this project here and here.

  • Surfaces: Card Stock and Chipboard
  • Tools: Die (Spellbinders) and Stamp (Text)
  • Color Mediums: Matte Paint (DecoArt-White and New Life), Stain (Lindy's Stamp Gang), Purple & Black Ink, UTEE, Embossing Ink, Gold Embossing Powder and Black Pen.
  • Other: Sentiment and Metal Letters
