Well, it’s Sunday again – early morning while the rest of the house is still asleep – so I’m in my craft room getting creative!
I haven’t tried water colouring on vellum before and it was difficult to keep the vellum flat once the water was applied. I created a bit of a window effect on my card so that you could see through the vellum and get the full effect of the colours. I used a stamp set from Hot off the Press called ‘easy watercolor florals’ which I heat embossed in white before I coloured the flower and leaves in.
It’s been awhile since I tried the faux stained glass effect and I had forgotten how time consuming it can be. I stamped the deer image from the Kanban ‘reindeer & snowflakes’ set in CP Midnight ink and smooshed it into some Old Olive ink. I then covered it over and over again in Versmark and clear embossing powder. It then went in the freezer to set the embossing firm before I then bent it to make the embossing crack – looking like stained glass. I stamped some snowflakes in Sahara Sand ink and swiped another panel in Pacific Point before layering them onto a white card base. I hope this still fits the CAS brief of all the challenges.
Well, that’s it for today – the rest of the house has woken up! Thanks for looking and have a great day.
