Blue, Blue Christmas

Good Morning all

Firstly to all my friends in the UK I do hope you are safe and sound after these terrible storms!! We have been very lucky and only suffered some damage to the garden and the poor dog has been terrified of the horrible winds and wont even pop out for a pee!

Now on to my Clare Curd Design Team post


So I tried a wee new technique, so please if I haven't done something right be kind!


Firstly I took a piece of super glossy card stock and cut it done to fit on my card


Next I covered it in Peacock Feathers and Broken China blue tones Distress Ink


I then used my heat tool to help dry of the ink ( be really careful with this and make sure the inks dry! I didn't do so well the first time heee)


Then taking my Embossing Ink and the snowflakes from the Crafty Impressions Happy Holidays set, I stamped all over to make my background


Then I covered the snowflakes in embossing powder the knocked off any extras


Heat all over with the heat tool again


I then took my black permanent ink pad and wiped it all over the surface, I did this a few times to get a nice even coat all over


then wipe over with a tissue to remove any excess ink from the embossed snowflakes


Next I layered the panel on to black card adding some ribbons before layering it on to a white card blank


I finished it off with the lil Time of Magic sentiment on another piece of white card that I inked again with the distress inks adding a black edge




I hope you like my little tutorial and sorry its not the greatest! But with practise I might get better heee

Well I'm decorating the tree today and baking some chocolate cupcakes for Craft Club tomorrow so all have a fab day!
