Christmas Card Throwdown - July Sketch
We have a new challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown. This time it's a sketch.
It's nice and simple and very versatile, I think, so I hope you'll get creative and join in.
I embossed the baubles with clear embossing powder and couldn't resist adding a few flourishes. The flooded the area with water and brusho powder. My spray bottle has stopped spraying so I used a brush to spread both around. Then I went off to work while it dried. It has to be done, I fit it in aroung cards and gardening as you see!
It's always fun to come back and see what has happened and what patterns have been created.
I ironed off the embossing powder. You do this using quite a hot iron. I use the back of a large paper pad as a solid base and a few sheets of scrap paper to absorb the melted embossing powder. (I've never got any on the iron). It's one of my favourite techniques.
I embellished with gold thread, gems and also a gold gel pen for a few dots on the bauble. Oh, and gold embossing round the edge which adds a frame but no extra layers.
I used washi tape and a die cut for the sentiment. Also coloured with a gold gel pen.
You have two weeks to join in the fun. The challenge ends on 14th July.
Thanks for visiting and Enjoy The Day. x
