This card uses the heat resistant acetate heat embossed using WOW Black Twinkle EP, and coloured using Promarkers. Unfortunately I only have a few Promarkers and some of the colours I thought looked a bit pale when applied to the acetate, but actually they seem to show up better than I thought they would. The colours I used were Ruby Red, Forest Green, Amethyst, Bright Orange and Indigo Blue. The snowflake on the right hand side was originally green and I put some red over the top because I didn't like having two greens next to one another, and this makes it look a bit reddy brown. I think some of the other colours might have been ok if I had been patient and waited for the colour to dry and just added more layers. I finished by coating the back of the acetate with Sky Blue and made it look mottled by just adding some more until it puddled a bit. I finished the card with a white mat edged with a Nellies Scallop Border Die and added a piece of bluey green card to the top and bottom of my usual square white card. I finished the card with silver sentiment.
On the second card I stamped and heat embossed the image with Papermania Seafoam White EP and then used various inks randomly over the top, and finished by filling the snowflake in with one of the inks. On both cards I only used part of the stamp and on this card I didn't get the best stamping result, but I decided that I would colour it and see how it looked, and when finished I decide that although the stamping fades out in places it actually works ok.
The inks that I used were Adirondack Dye Inks in Sunshine Yellow, Lettuce and Bottle, and Walnut Stain and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks. I used the Bottle with a little water and a brush to fill in the snowflakes. I usually smear a little ink from the pad onto my glass mat and sometimes I us a water brush, but this time as I wanted a nice fine line I used a Royal and Langnickel brush. I finished the card by mounting onto Gold Mirri and cut a Memory Box Snowflake Corner from the Mirri card and mounted these on a square white card finished with a gold sentiment.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today, and hope you all have a good weekend.
I am entering this card over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop as I have used some snippets/scraps of white card and Mirri card.
