I am still on Day 2 of Heat Wave. Jennifer McGuire showed us how to use water to hold embossing powder. But try as I might, I could not get this to work. So I tried my own idea. I splattered Heidi Swapp Color Shine instead of water, then added Ranger silver embossing powder and heated it. Got the look first try! Check it out:
I was inspired to create this card by the Christmas Challenge over at The Cat's Pajamas (TCP). I recently got this fun TCP set with Sprinkles the cat in an oversized sweater. It just cracks me up. After I finished the silvered background, I used a snow stencil from The Crafter's Workshop with Distress inks. TCP's cat image was colored with Copic markers, fussy cut and popped up with 3L Form Squares. I also stamped the TCP sentiment with Versamark black ink and Ranger clear embossing powder. I finished it off with ribbon and a Taylored Expressions' snowflake medallion diecut.
This card is entered in:
