Sparkle & Shine


It's Anja here. Again I used an adorable die. This gnomes with a little fox are so cute. It was so much fun making this card.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz die (Holiday Gnomes w/ Fox),
- Distress Inks,
- craft card base (15x15 cm) and card stock for cuts,
- silver pigment ink,
- white pigment ink,
- brush and tooth brush,
- black pen,
- white card stock for die cuts,
- water color paper for background (13x13 cm),
- sentiment stamp,
- embossing ink,
- water spritzer,
- white acrylic paint,
- white embossing powder,
- heat gun,
- acrylic block,
- paper glue.

First I colored the gnomes and the fox.

Then I started on the background. I used smooching technique for coloring. I tapped the color from the ink pads on my glass surface and sprayed it with water for the colors to mix a bit. Then I taped the paper on the mix of colors. I dried the paper  with the heat gun.

I did the same thing all over again. This time with only dark blue ink.

Next I colored the paper around the edges with white pigment ink. And then spritzed the snowflakes on top using white acrylic paint and brushes. Again I used heat gun to dry the paper.

Next I embossed the sentiment on a piece of craft card stock. I used white embossing powder.

When I had all the pieces ready I adhered it on the card base and my card was done.

That's all from me for today. Have a nice Sunday.
