Good Evening ! It's such a busy time of year, it's getting harder to find time for blogging, but I couldn't resist this week's Pink Challenge at IO. You can find all the details and beautiful design team samples here at Impression Obsession's Blog .
I recently purchased IO's beautiful Damask Snowflakes and was anxious to try them out so I decided to create a pink snowflake !
The following Impression Obsession Stamps were used to create this card: F2259 Sm Damask Snowflake, F2258 Damask Snowflake & C8280 Joyous Season.
I created the background using smooch inks- Taffy, Moonlight & Cherry Chocolate. To create a smooch background, start by covering white card stock with Versamark ink. Next using a colourbox stylus with the black moldable foam tip, add smooch inks starting with the lightest colour. The smooch inks give a beautiful sheen that I love. I've been using these inks for a year & half and while the bottles appear small they seem to be bottomless. I stamped the small Damask snowflake with Brilliance Platinum Planet Pigment Ink randomly onto the background.
I stamped & embossed in silver, the large Damask Snowflake onto watercolour paper. I used Tom Bow marker #757 directly on the paper and added water with a small brush to blend out. I only used the one marker. I carefully cut out the snowflake and added the brad (by Bobunny) to the center. I layered onto the card as shown with dark & light pink card stock. I added ribbon along the edge of the pink strip under the snowflake. Spellbinder Nestabilities S4143 was used for the label & the sentiment was also embossed with silver. A little holograph glitter, pink & white dot ribbon and pink rhinestones were the finishing touches.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the Season !
