Hi there,and happy World Card Making Day!
I hope you are enjoying WCMD here on the Winnie & Walter blog so far, and we do have lots more in store for you with lots of prizes too…. so what’s not to enjoy?!?!
So on to my challenge……. ‘Use Gold/Metallic’. You have probably guessed by now that I am a little partial to some gold, and with all the fabulous metallic inspiration from last month I thought it would be fun for you to show us yours.
Here’s a card that may jump start your creativity…..
Shhhhhh….. I may have used some never seen before goodies… shhhhhh, this is just between us right?!?!
To start I stamped the gorgeous poinsettia and leaves in a light grey ink on to a card layer using the smaller layer from Essentials: Katherine Cutaways, and then coloured with Copic markers. Once this was done I then stamped over the images again using the same stamps but this time with VersaMark, this way I could heat emboss the lines in gold. If I had embossed first the Copics would have stained the embossing, this way gives a much more cleaner look.
I then masked off the images and added some gold splatters using some Gold Color Shine.
I didn’t want my sentiment to take any attention from the stunning florals so I used a In A Word Cutaway and embossed this into my card. To do this I use a rubber mat so the die embossing instead of cuts when I run it through my die-cutting machine. When the ‘peace’ was embossed into my card I covered the work with a Wink Of Stella and some Glossy Accents.
Really hope you play along, we would love to see what you come up with!
