Hi there ~
Being retired, I have no daily commute so it's easy to be a fan of a day or two of snow. I am enjoying our recent snowfall and am making up a few last winter cards before I switch to the Valentines full time.
My friend Peggy was destashing a few stamps and she let me have first pick at them. I have always wanted SU's Lovely as a Tree set. She was getting rid of it and I was happy to take it off her hands.
I've finally gotten it out to play with, courtesy of the Just Us Girls challenge - Emboss Resist technique.
I heat embossed with white Hero Arts powder and then added Distress Inks in Black Soot, Faded Jeans, Broken China and Tumbled Glass with an ink blending sponge. I like the ombre effect these colors produce and it gives me a feeling of winter. After inking I used a microfiber cloth to take off any left over ink on the trees. The finished panel was attached to a black card base.
Thanks for stopping in.
