This is my first post as a DT for GingerLoft Challenges. Tami has a wonderful selection of digital images, serious and quirky, detailed and simple. There is something there for everyone! I have chosen 2 images for the November 14 challenge. (I know I am early but I have a string of 12 hr shifts to work and don't want to be late for my first challenge)! This first image is called Winter Trees. I have done 2 cards with it. One is simple with a couple of mats.
This image is also colored with copic markers. I used two new-to-me techniques for this card. The first is used on the white CS that I used the CB EF on. The technique by Tex is for adding sparkle or color to the top of the embossed images. Check out the video, it was easy!
The second was doing a raised frame over my image. This video is at StampTV and is also quite simple to do. There is flocking with the Sparkly Fluff (love this stuff) and the snowflakes are layers acrylic in clear, white and silver. Finished with white brads dipped in diamond glaze and then SU dazzling diamonds glitter. Finish it off with a bow made with white and sheer ribbon with strips of silver that run through it. Everything used in making these cards came out of my scrap baskets except the card bases. Gotta love that.
