The Sweet Stamps challenge this week is Christmas Spirit.
SweetStamps.com has Gilding Flakes in the store, and I had to try using them on a card. I applied Duo glue to the snowflakes, then I added Calypso Gilding Flakes and rubbed them in. Next, I used a coarser brush and wiped them off.
For the background, I tried an experiment...I found a small tube of spray hand sanitizer at Target (in the area where they have mini travel toothpaste, etc). I took 3 colors of ink spots and dabbed them onto my non-stick craft sheet, and then spritzed on the hand sanitizer. I sponged on the color on one color at a time onto glossy white cardstock- first gray, then the light blue and finally just a touch of the darker blue.
I added snowflakes and embossed them with shimmery EP. The rhinestones were colored with Copic marker YR23.
Here are the products I used :
Globecraft Piccolo Snowflake accents
Nassau Blue (my dark blue)
Jada's Snowball Fight- snowflake stamp
Distress Clear Embossing Ink
Diamonds and Pearls embossing powder
Copic Sketch marker
Cardinal Pair set- sentiment
Calypso Gilding Flakes
