Hello, crafty friends! Donna E here - It's always a joy seeing you. Here in central Florida, we are still experiencing extremely warm weather, so I took Mr. Woofie on a road trip to see his first snow!
The trip is chronicled on these Christmas cards, with a sweet seasonal greeting, using a brand new product called VERSAFINE CLAIR INK.
It's always fun seeing how different an image looks with a simple change in colors.
As mentioned the adorable Mr. Woofie is excited to enjoy his first snowfall -- after all, he IS a Florida Puppy, just visiting relatives for the Christmas holidays. (giggle)
Mr. Woofie has been colored in four shades, die cut, and coordinated with SNS Microfine glitters. These glitters are velvety smooth, and don't cover up the intricate details of the die cuts:
In the next step, I applied the frames to sticker paper:
After putting a coffee filter under the exposed panel, I applied a little glitter:
Thoroughly burnish in the glitter:
Do the same thing with each image:
Adhere the glittered panels to a white card base and select a sentiment:
Close Up of the images:
The sentiments were each stamped in a different color VersaFine Clair, and heat set with Clear Detail EP280. I began collecting these inks in March, and dearly enjoy them. I just purchased the remaining 6 colors LOL - they capture the detail of a stamp wonderfully, and are easy to emboss with.
