Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here to share a pretty friendship card.
Using a panel of Arctic Starstruck, I placed it in the MISTI. Inking up my background stamp with Versa Fine Clair in Purple Delight, I stamped directly on the panel.
Next, I inked up other portions of the stamp with Versa Fine Clair Green Oasis.
Then I re-stamped portions of the image with Purple Delight.
Isn't this a pretty background?
Since these inks are very juicy, they don't dry on foiled papers. I poured on clear embossing powder and carefully heat set the panel, moving the heat gun around the panel, heating both the front and back sides. TIP: Constantly move the heat gun - do not leave it in one place as that will buckle the paper. Moving the heat gun constantly allowed the embossing powder to melt.
The panel was then matted with Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, then Lavender/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and then I added a final layer of Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper before adding the panel to the card,
Using a Crafter's Companion Friend die, I die cut Arctic Starstruck Foiled Paper, then used the coordinating stamp with Versa Fine Clair Nocturne ink. I also poured on clear embossing powder and carefully heat set it.
Ovals, die cut from Lavender/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, were placed on the card. Friends was then added on top with foam adhesives for dimension.
Thanks for stopping by.
