I have a couple more Christmas cards for you today, mainly
as I am a bit against the clock in getting some made. I really admire those of
you that make them well in advance, unfortunately I am not one of those people.
I need a quick background my go to is one of my Gelli Plates and for these
cards I used the 4” round Gelli Plate. I used PaperArtsy Fresco paints on them
and to get the imprint of the snowflakes I pressed a snowflake embossing folder
into the paint prior to pulling the print. You can do this with any patterned
embossing folders and achieve some interesting results. Once I was happy with
the pulled print and the paint was dry I stamped the Blueprint stamps.
snowflake I added DecoArt Liquid Glass so it really looks icy, unfortunately
the photo doesn’t really show the effect. I have added a blue adhesive gem to
the centre and added the stamped word “Snow”.
Snowman I just added a little colour with Spectrum Noir pencils as they cover
brilliantly over acrylic paint.
