October My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #4 + Giveaway!
Hello and welcome as we continue the countdown to the release of the October My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is Monday, October 1st at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. Stay tuned for more inspiration all weekend long! Now let's join Michelle for another look at this Christmas and Winter inspired kit.
I am not sure why, but I really love making winter cards. I especially love snowflakes and I think they work perfectly for sending some winter cheer to friends.
For my card I started off with a panel of watercolour paper. I then took the 'winter wishes' sentiment from the main kit stamp set and stamped this on to the panel using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. I then took the two snowflake stamps and randomly stamped these over the background towards the top, with Versamark Ink again. This time I heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder to get the added detail in the snowflakes.
I then took Distress Inks in Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Dusty Concord and blended these over the panel with an ink blending tool. I took the iridescent ink that is in the kit and splattered this over the panel with a paintbrush. I did use a quite a lot of this, but you can never have too much shimmer can you? :) I set the piece aside to dry.
I took the deer from the stamp set and stamped this on to white cardstock with Intense Black Ink and coloured with Copic Markers. I then used the coordinating Frame Cuts to cut it out. The panel was added to a 4.5" x 4.5" white card base with foam sheet and double sided tape and then the deer added on top with thin foam tape.
