Stamping into Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I started with a square piece of Coconut White Card. I dabbed a little Faded Jeans Distress Oxide onto my Craft Sheet. I misted it with waterand then pricked it up onto my card. I repeated the process with Broken China Distress Oxide. I dried the ink with my Heat Tool and then edged with Faded Jeans Oxide using a Smoothie.

I stamped the gentleman from the Wendy Vecchi 3 Cheers for Art using Forget Me Not Archival.

I stamped the sentiment from the same set using Watering Can Archival.

I doodled around the edges of my card using a Pigma Micron Pen.

I matted onto Black Card and then onto Coconut White Card.

I set the Efcolor Stove up and added some CS Clear and Midnight Blue Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals to a Melt-It Case. I popped it onto the stove platform, added the lid and left to melt. I inked up the sentiment from the same set using Clear Perfect Medium. Once the crystals were moulten I poured some onto my Craft Sheet and added my sentiment stamp to it.  I left it to set for a couple of minutes and then peeled away the stamp. I brushed CS Phill Martin Chic Grey Blue Mica Powder over it. I added my sentiment to my card with a little Hi-Tack Tape and a little CS Glue.

I completed my card by adding 3 x 5mm Black Pearls.

Thanks for stopping by.
