Hello everyone, Happy Wednesday !
A couple of days ago I received the Honor of the Liebster Blog Award from Sue at OlliesMam.
Thank you Sue for thinking of me, I appreciate it ! I've been fortunate to receive this award a few times and have passed it on. But if
you have chance, please visit Sue's Blog to see her beautiful cards. She is a sweet lady and is on the Design Team for Splodge Away (UK).
I have another sample for Designs by Ryn using her Celtic Stars again. This time I tried the Ghost Technique on the background.
I stamped one of the small Celtic Stars from the Celtic Star Set CM-C7 with white Colorbox Pigment Ink. Next I blended Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry & Peacock Feathers Distress Inks over top and then rubbed the images with a paper towel. We learned this technique at the Magenta workshop but we used Pigment inks and maybe they work a little better. I don't have the small ink pads but maybe a sponge will work, will try next time ! I stamped over the background with the same star using Colorbox Harbor Pigment Ink.
I embossed the large Celtic Star 3 CM-C5 with black and sprayed green Dylusions ink to color. I highlighted the star with pink Dylusions Ink using the fine tip Ranger water brush. I used a small strip cut from the background under the star with black matting. I have some nice bling in my stash which I used for a finishing touch. You can see it better in the close-up below. I also added some holograph glitter with a glue pen in the centres of the stars. (which look like snowflakes don't they?) Merry Christmas is from Penny Black 3900H.
So again these are not traditional colors for Christmas but they are fun.
If you have a chance, please stop by Miranda's and Eileen's Blogs, both with lots of inspiration, who are also on Ryn's Design Team.
Thanks for your visit and hope to 'see' you again soon !
Have a great day,
