Hi everyone. Today I'm playing along with the Merry Monday challenge #203 - Ombre & glitter. Such a fun challenge from Kristie! Check out the DT cards at Merry Monday --- amazing inspiration!
I started by sponging four shades of blue distress ink onto my small font panel, starting at the bottom with my lightest shade and progressing to dark blue at the top. I then sprayed the panel with a bit of water, let it sit for a few seconds and then dabbed with a paper towel. This added lots of visual texture to my panel.
I inked the two trees with versamark, stamped and then heat embossed in white. I ripped a piece of white card stock for my snow hill, coating the edge with a new-to-me product called Snow Writer. This has been around a long time, but it's the first time I've used it. :) I sprinkled dazzling diamonds glitter over top ... love the sparkle. Once dry, I splattered with diluted white acrylic paint and stamped the sentiment in Delicata Silver ink. I also added little dots of dazzing detail glitter glue on the trees, but it's impossible to capture the glittery look with a camera.
Here's a close-up ...
My CAS Mix Up card has stamping, heat embossing, sponging, snow paint with glitter, and splattering. :) I'm heading over to join in the gallery at CAS Mix Up! Come join us!!
