Friendship Never Melts Away
Today I am sharing my Mixed Media card on the Artistic Outpost blog and decided to highlight the gorgeous Skating Emporium stamp set.
I am also linking this card to the Splitcoaststampers’ Alphabet Challenge “I” for Ice Skates and the WT575 “Think Three” Challenge.
I hope you will take the time to visit the Artistic Outpost Blog as well as the galleries for the challenge sites linked above.
Using the Memory Box™ Winter Flurry Frame, apply Crackle Texture Paste with a palette knife onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
Once the embossing paste has dried (I carefully used a Heat Tool to speed up the process), apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Old Paper and Tea Dye Distress Stain to the background (again, drying with the Heat Tool).
Spritz Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint (Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint mixed in a spritzer bottle with rubbing alcohol) over the entire panel.
Stamp the three images from Skating Emporium (the skaters on the lake along with the two Central Park advertisements) using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto a piece of OurDaily Bread Designs Vintage Ephemera 6x6 Paper.
Trim the images and apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Tea Dye Distress Ink to the images, position the two advertisement panels onto the background and adhere using Ranger® Tim Holtz® Crazing Distress Medium.
Use a zigzag stitch to attach the background panel onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Adhere the skaters on the lake image onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Crazing Distress Medium over the panel.
De-static a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the sentiment with Versamark™ Ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Winter White Embossing Powder heat with the Heat Tool and apply the embossing to dry.
Cut the sentiment apart by hand and mount the skaters on the lake image along with the sentiment onto the card front using dimensional foam.
Add the snowflake charm with Gold Thread and add a Pearl to the center of the charm.
Mount the entire panel onto the card base, using a Sponge Dauber with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Tea Dye Distress Ink to the edges.
Stamp the skate image onto Very Vanilla cardstock using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, fussy cut the image, apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Tea Dye Distress Ink with a Sponge Dauber and add Ranger® Tim Holtz® Crazing Distress Medium over the image.
Add the skates to the card front to finish off the card.
