Stampin’ Up! Soft Pastels – More Techniques 2

This is another of the cards I made during this week’s Facebook Live video. I showed you the first two yesterday. You can watch the video replay on Facebook or YouTube. I go live on my Nancy’s Nifty Notes Facebook Page every Wednesday at 10:00 AET. You can check to see what time that is where you are at this website.

Unlike the previous 2 cards made during this session, I applied the chalk colour to the cardstock before embossing in the Lace 3D Embossing Folder. This allowed me to make a very soft, diffuse background that was very random, rather than picking out embossed elements in colour.

I don’t know if you can tell, but I spritzed the panel with a combination of Frost White Shimmer Paint and isopropyl alcohol, so the entire thing is super-shimmery!

I added a trio of flowers cut with the Pierced Blooms Dies. This card is really an antidote to the grey and chilly Melbourne winter.

More shimmery goodness in the Opal Rounds embellishing the flower centres, and in the triple-loop bow made with our brand-new Glittered Organdy Ribbon.

I inked the sentiment first in Versamark, then with Highland Heather before stamping on the Basic White. This enabled me to heat emboss with Clear Embossing Powder, making the sentiment all shiny, too.
