Good Morning Ladies,
This weeks challenge is 'Snow', which means your card can feature a Snowman, Snowflakes or a Snowy Scene, entirely your choice, I thought that it made sense to carry on the Christmas theme for another week, (Sorry Val, I know you must be sick of making Christmas cards after stocking a whole shop) !
I had a play with the 'resist technique' for my card, I was going to uses stamps but due to my inability to get a decent stamped image up until recently I haven't really got any Snowflake Stamps, so I was very resourceful and used a mask.
I started off by scoring two lines across my card to give me a guide to mask off, I then used a 'That Special Touch Snowflake Mask' to ink through with Perfect medium, placing the snowflakes randomly across by border, I then added Cosmic Shimmer True White Embossing folder to the inked areas, tapped off excess and then heat set.
I made sure both sides of my border where well masked off before I went in with 'Shaded Lilac' Distress Ink, I gave that a blast with the heat tool and wiped off any ink from my embossed snowflakes.
To edge my coloured border I used some pretty irredescent lace and topped that with a similar coloured narrow ribbon.
I added some acrylic Snowflakes and Sparkles to finish my feature border.
To finish I die cut my Two layered Sentiment, Colouring the base part with Shaded Lilac Distress ink and leaving the top section White, I then went over it with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen.
The beauty of this style card is that its quite flat, so shouldn't be too costly to post.
I quite enjoyed playing with a new technique, it made me want to try more, I might try and get Snowflake stamp and have a go at Sue Wilson's 'Triple Stamping' Technique.
Have a great day everyone.
Love and hugs
