Day 14 - 30 Day Craft Challenge ~Earth~

Day 14 of the 30 Day Craft Challenge and the word for today is
Today I am sharing a project that I completed for a friend of mines sons 5th Birthday. He loves dinosaurs and my friend made an amazing dinosaur dig cake (will see if I can share it with you later in the week) and she asked me to do a few signs for her. The first photo is the little signs that go into the cake (Dig area) which where printed onto card and covered with glossy acents (AKA my new best friend) then put onto sticks. The second photo is of the banner sign I made it was done by printing a bone font (found free on the internet) onto brown card then I went over the font with glossy accents and sprinkled on (brown sugar coloured) Zing embossing powder. Once heated the embossing powder and glossy accents bubbled and made a letter that looked and felt like bone. I love using the glossy acents with the embossing powder it has a really precise nib so you can paint it into small areas and combines so well with the embossing powders (just make sure to heat in a well ventilated area).
