Challenge#104: Phoenix (rising from the ashes) TWIST use an embossing folder

So, let’s see what you can produce with a theme of rising from adversity like a phoenix and don’t forget to use the TWIST of an embossing folder somewhere in your work.

Here’s my take

I started by searching through my bits basket.  I know many of you have them.  The place you put unused bits after a project is finished or things you were experimenting with.  In my case the embossed background was an experiment piece that hadn’t found a home yet so it was resurrected.  That was my starting point.  I have a friend who is fighting with bowel cancer, her diagnosis is promising as she is young, she found it early and is responding to treatment.  So that was my next prompt as she will rise up to beat this.  My next prompt was looking at my NBUS stash. This Altenew stencil is from a magazine I bought a little while back.  So I used make up brushes to apply 2 red inks, 2 green inks Plus black to make my poppy.  I mounted this all on to my card front and added the sentiment using little alpha stickers (no idea where they came from or how long they have been there!).

I am also going to link up to the current challenge at NBUS here

I hope I see you in the challenge(s)!

Thanks for stopping

  1. I like your thinking here Vicki! To those battling ill health, it must often seem like ‘rising from the ashes’ so your card will really resonate with your friend. You’ve got me thinking too – I’ll try to enter this time.

  2. What a pretty poppy, Vicki! And what an excellent job you did using both your snippets and your NBUS! Your fabulous vibrant and strong design will be very encouraging for your young friend. I wish her all the best! Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Take care! Hugs, Darnell
