The bi-weekly Can You Case It? challenge is a color challenge this time around. I love the colors that Wynn, a design team member, came up with for this challenge. They seem so calm and peaceful to me. For this card I was inspired not only by these colors, but also by a card Richard Garay demonstrated in a video this week. I will share the link to his video at the end of this post.
So here is how I did it:
First, I used our Clear Pigment Ink and white embossing powder to emboss the white snowflakes. I embossed them on our Color Splash paper. After the snowflakes were embossed I used Fun Stampers Journey Color Burst Pencils, and our Blending Brush to create the background of my card. I used the #25, #27, and #33 pencils. This is the technique Richard did that inspired my card. Next I stamped the word Peace, from the Holiday Script Bundle with the Clear Pigment Ink and used Silver Embossing Powder on Vellum. The leaves were from the Autumn Time Bundle. I really like to use stamps in an outside the box kinda way. Like the autumn leaf as a Christmas y leaf. I stamped with clear pigment ink on our Brush Silver cardstock. This was also used for the 2nd layer on the card. I love the look of silver emboss on Silver Brush CS. . I used the Pocket Cuts Die for the stitched look on the Deep Lilac cardstock. The embellishments I used were the Cut Rhinestones. The base of my card is Whip Cream cardstock.
Here is the post to Richard’s video. He is an amazing leader for Fun Stampers Journey! He is so hands on and talented. I love all of his videos! https://www.facebook.com/richard.garay.9085/videos/10154560739146815/
