Hi everyone, I've still got lots of Christmas to make! This one involved colouring in and double embossing with clear powder.
I seem to use this Christmas tree every year but haven't used it with this technique, which has been around for ages.
The tree is diecut from an empty tissue box as it's easier with something a bit more robust than normal cardstock, and I like recycling lol!
I've coloured it with distress markers, festive berries, peeled paint and forest moss.
I dried it well with my heatgun, then dabbed versamark ink over it. (I made sure my inkpad was reasonably juicy). Then sprinkled on clear embossing powder and heated it. I dabbed versamark on again and repeated the process to give more depth.
I was worried that the markers might stain my versamark pad, but it was fine. Just dab on quickly.
I used a toothpick to put some gold liquid pearls into the centres, and stamped the sentiment in versafine onyx black, then embossed with gold embossing powder.
I'm linking up to the red and green challenge at Less is More,
and to CAS Mix up Card Challenge where the theme is anything goes Cas.
I've used stamping, diecutting and wet embossing.
I'm also linking up to the holiday greetings challenge at Outside the Box,
and to the anything goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.
