Merry Christmas

Octobeer 30, 2008

Here is a card made for the Ways to Use It Technique over at Splitcoast Stampers. Today technique is to use cracking in project.

For this card I used the Vintage Stamp Set from Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps. The image was stamped on white cs with Onyx Black Versafine. Used a tiny sponged tip applicator to sponge Galaxy Gold and Moonlight White on the image. I then stippled Walnut stain around the image and then sponge the very edges of the panel with the same ink. Stamped a Holly leaves on a separate cs and colored it with green and red Tombow markers. Cut the holly leaf out and adhered it to the top of Santa. I then applied Versamark to the top of the panel and heat embossed it 3x with Clear UTEE. After the UTEE cooled down I then bent the panel to form the cracks. This was matted onto dark green DP then on to burgandy DP. Background paper from the Pastel Paper Design collection of Crafty Secrets was distressed on the edges with Walnut Stain and then I randomly stamped the flourished from the same stamp set with Lightning Black. Adhered a strip of burgandy DP and the star DP from 'tis the season collection of studio 8 paper company. Most of the layers were edged with Gold Gel Pen. Used Peel Offs for my sentiment. The whole card layer was matted on to burgandy DP.
