Dove of Peace with All Ye Faithful :-)

Hi Stampers!

Woohoo!   My new Holiday Mini pre-order arrived late last week and I finally had a chance to play :-)  

This card was created with Dove of Peace and All Ye Faithful stamp sets using the Pals Paper Arts PPA263 Color Challenge, the Just Add Ink JAI275 SketchChallenge and the Splitcoaststampers’ CCC15 Christmas Challenge.

This new dove image reminds me of cloisonne jewelry and I thought that the PPA263 Color Challenge was a perfect combination for a festive dove :-)

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites yet, again, I would encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this Mixed Media card:

Use the Big Shot™ with the Boho Chic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock,  trim again and mount onto the Rich Razzleberry card base.

Use the AquaPainter™ to apply Frost White Shimmer Paint (mixed with rubbing alcohol) to the Pear Pizzazz panel and heat (carefully) with the Heat Tool to dry.

Stamp the sentiment using Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the Big Shot™ and the MFT Horizontal Stitched Strips die.

Mount the sentiment onto Rich Razzleberry cardstock, trim and adhere to the card front.
This was difficult to photograph with the shine on the Dove and background :-)

De-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the dove image only from Dove of Peace with Versamark™ Ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and use the Heat Tool to heat set.  

Use Stampin’ Write markers- Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise and Pear Pizzazz to color the dove and when finished, wipe the excess ink off of the embossed areas with a slightly damp paper towel.

 Carefully cut out the dove, de-static with the Embossing Buddy®, apply Stampin' Emboss® Clear Embossing  Powder, heat set and when cooled, mount onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add a few Rhinestones to the sentiment strip to finish off the card.

Now this is definitely on my must-have list. You did such a beautiful job. Embossing in white is really appealing. Great job colouring it. The colours are stunning.
