Hi everyone, I've been making some small ornaments to go on a little Christmas tree that I bought from Ikea. The back of the ornament has black card on it but if you angle them right you just see the front.
I thought I'd pop one on a card for the metals theme at CAS Mix Up Card Challenge.
I attached some adhesive metal sheet to card stock, diecut it, then embossed it. I've done this before with other embossing folders but not this Baroque one. The tag at the back is embossed with the same folder.
Next I poured on some alcohol inks, it looks as if I mainly used citrus and red but there's wild plum and some blue in there too! Lastly I poured on some dimensional magic to protect it and give a glossy finish. The ink does move around a bit more too, so I'm investigating sealing it first before I add the gloss.
Here's a closer look.
My elements are metal, diecutting dry and wet embossing, stamping and alcohol inks.
I'm also linking up to the tags challenge at Less is More.
and it's a clean and simple theme at Addicted to Stamps & More.
I used a snippet of silver shimmer paper for the tag and the silver cord is also a snippety piece. Yep I throw nothing away lol! So I'm also visiting the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
A good excuse to check in on little Dudley's antics too!
Dies: Poppystamps Clarissa ornament background, and the top from Marconi ornament and the hoop from Brittany ornament, yes looks like I have a lot of ornament dies lol! MFT tag and pierced tag stax;
