Today I have some cards that I made for Scrappymo's Rudolph Days challenge. It's three cards made with two ink pads (Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar distress inks) and one stencil (Snowflake Flurry from Imagination Crafts) but three different finishes. After covering three pieces of card with the two colours I set about decorating. The first I used Grunge Paste and then when it was dry I popped the stencil back over and used Inka Gold in Silver and then buffed with a soft cloth before addng a ribbon and the die cut snowflakes. I then matted onto silver card and added the sentiment which was from a Tim Holtz Sizzix set.
The second card I used a ready made polyfilla (hubby just happened to have some lying around) and got a slightly rougher look to the finish, when this was dry I took Pebeo's gilding wax and rubbed over the top without putting the stencil back over. I love the shabby look that I got with this finish but wish that I had distressed the edge of my card before mounting it.
For my last card I used some silver sparkle medium that I had bought at a show a couple of years ago. I was not the tried and tested variety that I had used in the past from Imagination Crafts but one that can be dried with a heat gun. I have to say that I was pleased with the finish, but it does not look so nice in the jar. Both of the last two cards I used the same sentiment as the first.
Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
