In my new video series called " It's in the Details" I want to show you a very simple card that if you wish you can take your stamped image a step further by adding more details to your card.
|These cards are super easy with one layer. I colored right onto the red rubber with my water color markers. To take this simple technique a step further you can use a stamp positioner (or mark exactly where you stamped the first time) and use some VersaMark & embossing powder, then stamp ON TOP of your already water colored stamped image as you can see in the video.|
|Embossing on top of the stamped image a second time allows to you water color on top and the colors of the snowflakes won't change or dilute. I love the soft look of this Bo Bunny 6x6 paper pack for layering and I used this nice and heavy watercolor paper for my image. I used some distress ink on my second layer of Spellbinders for the center die cuts. The beautiful scalloped boarder is from this set and such a great value.|
In the video I rounded my corners and added some gems then, (after filming) I decided I needed to die cut two chapes to create more interest in the center of my card.....but, I FORGOT that you can't put gems through your machine so I snapped my cutting plates in two. I love the look of the crushed gems so I will try this a different way next time...lol. To secure the newly crushed gems I added Glossy Accents on top. I really hope you like the video and I hope to share a video once a week in my series "It's in the Details" I hope you will stay tuned. If you want to subscribe to my UTube channel click here. This card will be featured on the Penny Black blog today. I just love these delicate snowflakes on the wreath from PB. Thanks you for visiting I am so happy you stopped by. Hugs, Kathy
