It's Tuesday again and I have another of my experiments for you. Well this is a combo of technique experiments really.
Firstly I took a piece of heavy watercolour paper and blended 3 different blue/green distress inks and gave them a good wash of water to fade them out and blend them nicely. After drying I gave a little spritz with a Linday's Starburst Spray in Sea Mint Green and then dabbed it with some kitchen towel to lift the colour. This still leaves behind the shimmer and gives a lovely effect that I couldn't quite manage to show up on camera.
After drying it off again I ran it through my machine inside an old embossing folder that I've had for ages and never really used, but I thought it worked rather nicely for this.
I stamped a sentiment with Versamark ink on a piece of vellum using the Mama Elephant - Jingle Greetings Clear stamp Set, and then embossed with white embossing powder.
I adhered the strip to the embossed panel just on the edges and then covered the edges with a frame cut using the Whimsy Stamps Shaker Builder Die
Finally I mounted it with some foam tape on a little turquoise cardstock then stuck the whole thing to a white card base and added a few clear sequins to embellish.
I really enjoyed making the whole thing and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. One more Christmas card ticked off of the list!
See you soon!
