Blue, Blue Christmas

Good Morning all

Well its Friday again and its Mel again but I'm here with something very new to me, so please be kind!

So I tried this new technique, if you find something wrong please be kind let me know!

Firstly I took a piece of super glossy card stock and cut it done to fit on my card

Next I covered it in Peacock Feathers and Broken China blue tones Distress Ink

I then used my heat tool to help dry of the ink ( be really careful with this and make sure the inks dry! I didn't do so well the first time heee)

Then taking my Embossing Ink and the snowflakes from the Crafty Impressions Happy Holidays set, I stamped all over to make my background

Then I covered the snowflakes in embossing powder the knocked off any extras

Heat all over with the heat tool again

I then took my black permanent ink pad and wiped it all over the surface, I did this a few times to get a nice even coat all over

then wipe over with a tissue to remove any excess ink from the embossed snowflakes

Next I layered the panel on to black card adding some ribbons before layering it on to a white card blank

I finished it off with the lil Time of Magic sentiment on another piece of white card that I inked again with the distress inks adding a black edge

I hope you like my little tutorial and sorry its not the greatest! But with practise I might get better heee

Well I'm decorating the tree today and baking some chocolate cupcakes for Craft Club tomorrow so all have a fab day!
