Hi there. Here are my quick cards which are featured as part of the once a month 15 minute card feature over at Chocolate Baroque.
I used a piece of white Bristol Smooth card and stamped two of the images from the Winter Edges set on to it using Versamark Ink and WOW Opaque
White Embossing Powder.
I then blended Distress Inks
into the background using a blending tool. I used Mustard Seed above
the silhouette and then using Stormy Sky started to build up the
colour. I then added a bit more yellow around the edges and some
Seedless Preserves and Faded Jeans to darken it, and finally Black Soot
just around the edges. I decided to lay the ink on my glass mat and pick it
up from there so that I would not put too much colour on at a time. I
think it would have been better if it had more blue tones, but
nevertheless I was pleased with the finished result.
finished by adding the sentiment from the Let's Get Festive set to the
white base card using Versamark and heat embossed with WOW Silver
Metallic EP before adhering the scene to the card. Finally I decided to
add some stars to the sky using a white gel pen.
For this card I
also used two of the images from the Winter Edges set, stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed using WOW Red
Glitter Embossing Powder on to a previously die cut piece of red card, cut using a stitched square die. The two stamps didn't totally fit on the square, but I think it still works. I then found a piece of kraft card on which I
randomly stamped one of the foliage stamps from one of the new sets called Robin the Spruce again
using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss EP.
I finished by cutting the kraft card about 1/2" smaller than the white base card and after adhering the red topper added a banner sentiment using kraft card and the Let's Get Festive set, stamped with Festive Berries Distress Ink and heat embossed
with WOW Clear Gloss EP.
