I have a little (er..not so little..grab a cuppa and pull up a chair!) tutorial for you today, a step by step showing you how I created my latest piece for Creative Expressions! I made a Santa Bauble card, using the fabulous Tim Holtz Christmas Time stamp set....
Right, here goes with the instructions!
Firstly, take a piece of white card, and stamp the snowflakes randomly using Snow Cap paint. Tricky to see in the pic, but its there!
Broken China Distress Ink onto the card. The paint will resist the ink, so the snowflakes will show through.
Broken China Reinker , and spritz with water....
Embossing Ink . Sprinkle Ranger Sticky Embossing powder over the images....
Rock Candy dry glitter over the sticky areas.
Now my favourite bit....getting messy! Put a dab of white paint, reinker and Perfect Pearls onto your craft mat, add add a little water to each. Using a paintbrush, flick a little of each onto the background to create splats.......
Glossy Accents , glue the acetate to the top of the stamped image. Add a little around the edges too, and dip them in the Dry Stickles glitter.
Use an embossing tool or the end of a used up biro to impress lines into the foil covered square..
Squeeze a little Silver Paint onto a craft sheet, then use the edge of an old store card to create a silver line on your background. This will be the 'hanging attachment' for the bauble.
Tune in again next Thursday for another (and this one's very quirky!) take on creating with this great stamp set!
