Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and Ashwini has chosen dichromatic as the theme.
She'd like us to use only 2 colours, neutrals are ok but no metallics.
My team mates and our party guest Vicky have some wonderful cards to inspire you, so I hope you can play along.
I was a bit stumped with this one to start with and decided to look through my drawers of stamps that have had little or no use!
These feathers leapt out and I stamped them in versafine clair nocturne, then embossed them with a fine white detail powder.
Does anyone know of a white ink that can capture fine details?
I think my ink pad needs reinking so the white embossing covered the black ok, but my sentiment is a bit pale!
Next I sprayed on some distress oxide inks in salvaged patina and antique linen, then spritzed on some water to blend things a bit more.
When dry I tried to buff over the embossed areas with a paper towel to remove the white oxide residue.
I'm linking up to these challenges:
Sparkles Monthly Challenge, something big, something small
Little Red Wagon, make it masculine
As You Like It Challenge, favourite occasion and why.
I love birthdays and making cards for them because the sky is the limit for techniques and ideas for them!
