Those who know me know I cannot resist trying new techniques.....so, when I saw this tutorial on Gingersnaps- it called out my name....not to mention I had a 40% off coupon for Blicks......
So, I printed out the Vintage Santa and the digi cardstock by Create with TLC on Cryogen White cardstock- there is a subtle shimmer in the cardstock- so pretty! Next, I followed the tutorial and added Glossy accents in a thin layer to Santa's image and adhered that to the acetate. Then I applied Glass Bead Gel (which was $6.95 at Blicks and I had 40% off.....). I took a skewer and drew in the snowflakes and waited for it to dry.
I stitched in a Zig Zag around the edges of the CS and added a sentiment and a raffia bow. The sentiment is sitting on a Spellbinders snowflake that is colored in C1 Copic marker and Sakura Gelly Roll pen. The sentiment is also Create with TLC. Let me add- I used red line tape to adhere the picture to the background so it would stay securely.
I discovered there all many different textures available in this gel....so I may be playing more in the future.....for now, one less Christmas card off of my list to complete!
