Faux Leather Workshop #240

23aug2

I had a fabulous workshop this week teaching 5 enthusiastic ladies on how to create Faux Leather from craft card as per Sheena Douglas’ fabulous technique.  We had such a fun evening!  The workdesk was covered in Distress Inks, Kraft Card and Embossing Folders!  We all worked on an A6 piece of card so we had plenty of chances to try out different designs.

IndigoBlu with Alcohol Inks #214

July28Today’s creation is for a blog challenge over at IndigoBlu.

Their challenge this month is Christmas in July

I started by creating a vibrant background using Alcohol inks onto glossy cardstock.  I used Stonewashed, a little Stream and the tiniest dot of Silver mixative (a little goes a very very long way!)

I dotted the inks over the surface until I was happy with the background.

Next I rubbed over thoroughly with my anti-static pad and then stamped in Versamark my Dinkie Ickle Christmas Tree.  I embossed it using a fine black powder

July28aI then used the Baubles Flourish stamp to create the swirls in the corner again with black embossing.  I then used this same stamp around the edge of my 5×7 card blank and embossed in silver sparkle.

I then added some highlights with silver stickles and a fineliner border.

I like the way you get just a little glimmer of the silver on the background and the mix of blues looks like a snowy stormy sky.

I’ll be using this as one of my sample’s at Sunday’s AJuly28blchol Ink workshop – it may be Summer – but that doesn’t mean we can’t create Christmas cards!

This is my entry to the Indigoblu Christmas in July Blog Challenge

happy crafting
