Wrapped in Warmth- BSU120617
Hello and Welcome to this weeks Broke Stampers Unite Challenge. This week our the is Winter/Christmas. Temps just took a large plunge here in Texas and the silly Newsman keeps mentioning snow flurries. LOL While I guess it COULD happen I'm guessing the only snowflakes we are going to get is here on my card.
I started with a base of Soft Sky cardstock at 4.25 x 5.5 I then took a layer of Whisper White that was cut to 4 x 5.25 and I heat embossed three snowflakes from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set #144820 down the left side of my panel using White embossing powder #109132 I then took my Soft Sky ink pad and squished the lid before opening to get ink on the inside of the lid. Using an Aqua Painter I added a drop or two of water to the ink on the lid and did a nice wash of color over each snowflake. This technique is called emboss resist. Because the embossed snowflake resists the ink and pops through the color of the wash. Once I got that to the intensity that I wanted I let it dry for a minute before stamping my sentiment in Soft Sky. I finished with three little Rhinestone Jewels placed in the center of each snowflake. #144220
