I Brake For Stamps Challenge – Backgrounds – IBFSCC2


This is the card I designed for the I Brake For Stamps Challenge entitled “Unlock the Imagination”.  This week’s challenge is backgrounds. 

The background I decided to use is based on a video tutorial by Susan Rothamel Pickering. The cardstock is embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder, the raised portions have an application of USArtQuest Duo Embellishing Adhesive and, when dry, bits of metal foiling (also USArtQuest) is brushed onto the adhesive coated raised areas.

Paper for this project was from the Tradewinds matstack by DCWV and black cardstock. The door stamp is from I Brake For Stamps. The keyhole was made with the Hardware Findings die from Tim Holtz Alterations.  Also used were Ranger Glossy Accents and Ranger Black Diamond Stickles, Spare Parts by Paper Studio brads and the key & lock charms were from Explorer by Traditions.

About Charlotte Zweigoron

Married, retired, never been so busy..! One of my most prized possessions is my very own craft room! And, actually, all the rest of our home is built around that craft room. Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. I have been living in Georgia for over thirty-five years after a four year stint in Chicago. Crafting, reading and playing Mah Jongg with our circle of friends are my favorite activities right after spending time with my four grandchildren and four great-grandsons. Two of my three grown daughters and one of my two grandgirls live right across the yard from my husband and I. The youngest daughter, her husband, and our grandpups live in our same town. I have been teaching a paper crafting class for over three years and the ladies in the group have become a second family. We are well and truly blessed with people and critters to love..!

    Realizing that I know nothing about what it is you’re doing, please also realize that I certainly recognize beauty when I behold it and these items abound with rich beauty…..textures, colors, patterns, organization. Yours is a world that is foreign to me, so I’ll enjoy as I flip through your items.
