Here's today's sneak peek from the One Day Special that I'm launching on Hochanda tomorrow at 6pm.
Cosmic Shimmer Polar White Sparkle Texture Paste through the Holly Background Mask onto Coconut White Card. Leaving the mask in place, I sprinkled CS Peacock Green Pixie Powder over. I removed the mask and cleaned it under a tap and set my background aside to dty. The Pixie Powder does it's magic while drying and splits into different shades.
Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares Set B. Once my background was dry, I added my frame using 2mm Foam Tape. I matted onto a couple of pieces of Coconut White Card.
I stamped the candle from the Creative Expressions Christmas Motifs Stamp Set using Onyx Black Versafine Ink. I coloured in using CS Intense Pigment Stains. I used Emerald, Rich Crimson and Sunflower Yellow. I popped a drop of each into separate wells in a Palette and used a Water Brush to pick up the ink. You only need a tiny bit so you could colour loads if images with just one drop! For the candle flame, I picked up some Red Crimson on my Water Brush and mixed that into the Sunflower Yellow in my Palette to make an orange.
I cut the image out using dies #3 and #4 from Sue's Looped Snowflake Frame Die Set. I cut die #4 out of Rich Red Card and glued the 2 die cuts together.
I cut dies #3 and #4 together from Sue's Art Deco Snowflake out of Coconut White Card twice. I cut die #4 out of Rich Red Card twice. I glued the pairs of die cuts together and glue the pairs together, offsetting them as shown to form a really pretty circular frame for my candle.
Creative Expressions Santa's Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Versafine. I cut it out using Sue's Pierced Flags. I cut Sue's Poinsettia Cluster out of Coconut White and Rich Red Card and added a 5mm White Pearl to the centre of each flower.
8mm White Pearl to 3 of the corners of my square frame.
Thanks for stopping by.
