Our theme this month is - COLD AND FROSTY COLOURS - so blues, lilacs, whites etc
I messed about with Alcohol Inks before Christmas and used up all the backgrounds I had made on Christmas Cards.
I have a Dienamics Die that cut out the grid which was fine - it was all the stamping and embossing that took forever!
This was definitely not one for mass producing.
I used Sail Boat Blue and Stream A.I's and added a bit of Silver onto a piece of aluminium foil and used a technique demonstrated by Loll here to cover the Yupo Paper.
The stamps are just random ones from my Christmas Stash.
The squares were matted onto white then onto matt silver card before being mounted onto the base card.
Just a word of warning - you have to be very careful heat embossing onto inked Yupo! If you hold the heat gun too close or over heat the embossing powder, the Yupo behaves like shrink plastic and curls up!
We have a great prize again on offer this month -
so get out all your new stash and come and join us.
If you need inspiration, my teamies have come up with some great projects which am sure will give you some ideas over on the challenge blog.
Please remember though - WE ARE A STAMPING CHALLENGE - .
So must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork , this means:
Stamping must be the central point of attention and interestI hope everyone is recovered from the New Year festivities! Thanks for stopping by today - have a great day whatever you're doing! x
