Hi everyone. Today I've got a card to share with you, that I used some pretty cool technique combinations. I'll do my best to explain them, but don't hesitate to ask questions if you need more information. There is a whole lot going on with this card, but I think it still all gels. So here we go. Firstly this amazing background stamp is from Pez-a-doodle and I absolutely love it. It is called the Cobblestone background. The rest of the stamps are Studio G. I really love the fairy collection and can use them with so many different projects. You will notice that the center is made up of 5 pieces. Firstly 2 scalloped squares. Then a really distressed dark blue square with teal border. This dark blue square has a few different techniques on it. Firstly I used emboss resist (the paper was originally teal) then I crumpled the entire piece until the embossing powder started "cracking". Lastly I took Opalite ink and went over the entire piece to give it some "moon glow". A little Tricky but totally worth it.
Now for the cobblestone background, I also used emboss resist, but instead of using regular paper and ink, I used glossy paper and Alcohol ink. To remove the alcohol ink from the embossed image, all you have to do is use the Alcohol Blending solution and it will come right off the embossed part of your image. TRES COOL!!!
I will be doing a couple projects with embossing over at SNR in June, so make sure you stop by, and sign up. There are so many great things going on over there, that you will be so glad you made the decision to be a SNR JUNKIE!!!
