Hi there. Here is the second card. I used the same Indigoblu Large Snowflake stamped on a snippet of white card using Memento Grape Jelly ink. I inked it using the same distress inks as on the last card. This was backed with a snippet of the bright blue used on the last card.
I had a go at a technique I have seen used by Barbara Gray which uses coated cardstock covered randomly in ink, and then a piece of cling film which has been sprayed with water laid on top and scrumpled a bit. When it is dry you lift off the cling film and the water should have created nice random wavy patterns on the card. Well, I tried doing this with inkjet shiny paper of a reasonably heavy weight which I happened to have, and using the same three distress inks as the last card, namely Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry. Perhaps I wasn't patient enough but it didn't seem to be doing anything so I lifted it off and dried it with my heat tool. It did leave one or two slight marks but nothing like it should have. Also I found that little bits of the surface had come off. Anyway I decided to carry on to see how it would look when finished. I stamped over this piece with Memento Grape Jelly, first and second generation ink, using the Claritystamp small snowflake used on the last card and decided that it looked ok. I backed this piece with a snippet of the bright blue and then the navy card.
To finish I stamped with the small snowflake stamp on to the base card using Grape Jelly second generation ink. I then used some Perfect Pearls on the large snowflake Neither of the cards have sentiments as I decided to leave them off for the time being.
I think if I try this technique again I will leave it overnight to see if it works any better, but it could be that the coating on this paper is not tough enough so I will need to buy the correct card. I do like the shiny finish this piece has which is nice for a change.
Thank you for looking at my blog today and I really appreciate your interest.
I am entering the following challenge:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop - Week 135. Must use snippets of paper or card. I have decided to use this second card as it contains more snippets. This is my second entry this week.
