Hello Happy Stampers,
Today I am sharing a technique that may not be new but was new to me. I watched a video by Gail O'Neill on YouTube that explained the technique very well and you can view it HERE.
I made a similar card but changed it up just a bit. I added Frost White Shimmer Paint and used White Craft ink for the ground because I was going for a Christmas look and for some reason I'm stuck with the thought that snow and Christmas go together even though Bethlehem where Christ was born was probably a warm tropical climate. Maybe that's because I've been hooked on the song by Bing Crosby "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" since I was a wee little lamb. I also used a different color for the sky and added "snow falling"
Anyway, here is a picture of today's card.
The technique for the background uses Glycerine gel and it makes the background very smooth. I really like the look and will be using it more in the future for this type of application.
There are some tricks to how it is done so I encourage you to check out my These Are My Stamps site to see what those are. There you will find printable instructions with pictures and a complete supplies list.
I hope you enjoy, thanks for stopping by,
