Thanks for stopping by!
Saturday’s blog a new technique. To who? To me? To you?
Well, this one’s new to me, and I am hoping to get to it on telly tomorrow. Just in case we run out of time, (or I bungle it on Live TV!) I really want to show you this one.
Here’s what I have used:
The NEW CHROMO CARD.
An embossing machine
Alcohol Inks available individually.
We also sell alcohol(ink) in 6-packs!
is the same, but to use with felts.
Start by running the snowflake stencil through an embossing machine with our new A5 Chromocard. The result is impressive.
Drip a couple of drops of Salmon Alcohol Ink onto a felt and dab randomly over the embossed snowflakes.
Then get a fresh felt, add some drop of Stonewashed alcohol ink and dab blue over the peachy colour.
What a mess! But just wait…
Time for the darker colours. Fresh felt methinks.
Add Stream and Denim Alcohol ink, but this time add some Blending Solution to the felt, too.
Concentrate the darker colours around the top.
Then make hills and ridges with the Stonewashed or the Stream.
How? Add a thin line of the particular colour ink on your felt, then add a thin line of blending solution directly underneath.
I do hope we get to do this on Telly!
I could always do a YouTube Video of it, so you get to see the amounts of ink I use.
Just look at how glossy the artwork is!
Fabulous. It dries instantly, too.
Time to bring out the snowflakes.
This is so cool! I used one of our mounts with Velcro on, and attached a piece of sanding paper to it.
You simply sand away the raised surface, so the ink stays in the grooves and the snowflakes are exposed.
Wipe clean with a dry cloth.
Now for the stamping.
This set of Winter Wonderland stamps is wonderful.
You may remember, we used it in the Classroom on TV
a while ago. It is also available with a lovely backdrop landscape:
But here, I am going to stick with just a couple
of the smaller elements.
Dust the area you want to stamp onto with talc. It just helps minimize slipping and sliding on glossy card.
You have to use a permanent ink pad on ultra-glossy card.
I used a beautiful new blue called Cornflower Blue Archival.
If you blot the stamp before you plant the image, (ink blot plot!) this not only helps reduce the slipping, but you can also vary the depth and give a misty effect.
Hope you like it.
It is not as har as it looks!
Crowborough Clarity Retreat material for sure!
