Hi everyone and happy Monday :)
And here is my project:
Stamp the Magenta "Noel" image with Versamark ink on a plain white panel of cardstock and heat emboss it with Imagine Crafts white embossing powder.
Pick up some Memento inks in Love Letter with an Ink Blusher tool and also some Memento inks in Tangelo and colore the card front.
Move right over the entire area, even over the embossed image. The embossed lines act like a resist and will not get colored.
You can go over the embossed lines with a damp cloth in the end if you want to.
"Distress" - or I better should say: color all edges of the panel with Delicata Golden Glitz ink and a Sponge Dauber.
Use Memento markers in Tangelo to color the inside potions of the embossed "Noel" letters. Then use the Rhubarb Stalk marker to create some shading.
A Memento marker in Dandelion was used to color the swirls and all of the lighter areas in the embossed image and also to highlight the letters on the outside, to let them stand out against the red background a little better.
The potions on the image that should be white (like the braid of the hat and the melting wax on the candle), will be filled in with the irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in Wedding Dress.
To create the faux stitched border, use a ruler as a guide and poke wholes all around the panel. Then use the irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in Wedding Dress (white) again to create the "stitches".
Cut a length of neutral (off-white) seam binding and dye it with Memento Luxe inks in Tangelo and Dandelion and the help of an Ink Blusher tool.
Heat set it with a heat tool and let it cool, before wrapping it around the card and tieing into a bow.
Almost done... just add some enamel dots here and there and mount the layer onto the card front with foam tape.
And here is an additional close up to show you the faux stitching and some of the other details :)
