Hi everybody. It is nearly the end of another month so time to show some more of the cards I made for the July TV programmes featuring some Chocolate Baroque Christmas stamps, a new one called Robin the Spruce, and one which has been around for a while called Serena.
For this card I have used stamping on to acetate using Black Archival ink. After stamping the image put it to one side and leave it for at least 30 minutes to make sure it is perfectly dry, ask me how I know...lol. I then coloured it on the back using some alcohol inks and a brush, mixing them with a little of the blending solution.
doesn't have a totally smooth finish but then I backed it with a piece
of white card on which I stamped the image and lined them up, which has
strengthened the line art. I folded the acetate around the backing
piece top and bottom and then added a very little glue down the sides to
keep it flat.The alcohol ink colours were Stonewashed, Indigo,
Watermelon and Lemonade, and I mixed Butterscotch with a bit of
Watermelon to make a brown colour. I then layered this on to another
piece of white card before adding it to the white base card.
added two more of the stamps from the set heat embossing them using
Versamark Ink and WOW Silver Metallic Embossing Powder, and then added
the sentiment which comes from the Let's Get Festive set, again using WOW
Silver Metallic EP.
I love Serena which is such a pretty seasonal image, but
actually she could be used at any time of the year with different colours, and mine aren't typical Christmas colours either. I used Distress Oxide Inks in Salty
Ocean and Worn Lipstick, and then I coloured her with them as well.
started with a piece of the Frisk Velvet Card and stamped the two colours
down on to my glass mat and spritzed with water before dragging my card
through them, and I did this several times to colour the card drying in
between layers of colour until I was happy with the finished result.
then heat embossed the image using Versamark Ink and WOW Opaque
Bright White Embossing Powder and also added one of the sentiments
from the Festive Wishes set, and used the same white EP. After
colouring the image I added some Wink Of Stella for the area behind her
head and around the candle flames which unfortunately doesn't really show up in the photo.
I finished by adding this to the white base card.
I have a couple more cards which I will try to show before the end of the month.
Thank you for visiting today, and a special thank you for all the lovely comments which I really appreciate.
