Good afternoon everyone! This is blog post number five and I’m still figuring out my online voice. I wanted to post a really interesting patina technique today that I found online and changed up a little. I searched for about an hour this morning and could not find the original link. If I stumble across it later I will post.
- Cut an 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of Delightful Dijon card stock in half lengthwise at 4.25 inches. Fold in half to form your card base.
- Cut a pice of Crumb Cake card stock to 4 inches by 5.25 inches.
- Place in the new Boho Chic embossing folder and run through the Big Shot.
- Sponge island indigo ink onto the embossed piece in random areas. Blend well and then do the same with Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke ink.
- Use the splatter stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and stamp the edges of the embossed piece with Versamark. Sprinkle the Versamark with Gold embossing powder and tap off the excess. Heat the embossing powder with an embossing gun until it shines.
- Adhere the embossed piece to the card base.
- Cut an oval out of Whisper White card stock and an oval matt out of Soft Suede card stock.
- Stamp the fox from The Wilderness Awaits stamp set on the white oval using Chocolate Chip ink.
- Fill a Aqua Pen with rubbing alcohol. Take your Cajun Craze ink pad squish it to get some ink on the inside of the lid. Use the Aqua Pen to pick up ink and color the fox adding shadows and highlights where needed. Do the same with Always Artichoke ink to color the grass. I used a tiny bit of Chocalate chip ink on the foxs eyes.
- Use a sponge to lightly sponge the edges of the white oval with Pool Party ink.
- Adhere the fox to the Soft Suede oval and center and adhere to your card front.
- Stamp the sentiment from The Wilderness Awaits on a scrap piece of soft suede card stock and cut into a pennant. Adhere to the bottom left of the ovals as shown.
This was a beautiful technique for my card classes. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
