Hello everyone! Since the student galleries for the Online Card Classes are open for a limited period of time only, I had to hurry to submit them and only published them on my Flickr accunt so far. Now that I have more time, I am able to describe to you in more detail how I made them. First up is the Merry Making card with the paint resist technique:
For this card, I used the background stamp Romatic Script from My Favorite Things and covered it with Distress Paint (colour: Peacock Feathers) in random places. I stamped the image as I would any stamp but I did not bother to have a crisp impression. After the paint had dried, I took some Distress Oxide Inks (colours: Iced Spruce, Peacock Feathers) and my ink blending tool and created the background. The edges of the paper are blended with the “regular” Distress Ink in colour Walnut Stain.
The images on the card front are from different sets by Lawn Fawn: Winter Penguin (the penguin, obviously), Toboggan Together (large tree and the sentiment) and Mom + Me (small tree). I stamped them with Lawn Fawn inks: the penguin is stamped in the colour Hippo, the trees in the colours Hippo and Doe. The penguin was, then, coloured with Copic Markers (N2 and BG 72). The ground for the penguin and the trees to stand on is die-cut from vellum with one of the Stitched Hillside Borders by Lawn Fawn.
I have to admit, I was too afraid to stamp the sentiment directly onto the panel (I did not want to mess up the beautiful background…) so I decided to stamp the sentiment on vellum, also. For this, I used one of the sentiments from Toboggan Together, stamped it in Versamark ink, poured Lawn Fawn’s new Silver Embossing Powder on it and heat embossed it.
Everything was adhered together using liquid glue by Tombow; the penguin was adhered with foam tape. This finishes the card. I hope you like it.
Thank you very much for stopping by!
Have a nice day!
