12 Tags of Christmas - day 5
Wow! what a technique - go check out Tim's tutorial if you haven't already - it is AWESOME
As ever, lots of substitutions here, but with such fun results.
I didn't have a large solid stamp so I used fired brick distress ink directly onto a foam block and then used the embossing distress ink directly onto an old Tim Holtz stamp (the one that looks like peacock feathers) My stamp was covered in Stazon ink and somehow when I stamped it onto the foam pad it lifted off a lot of the Stazon.....soooh when I stamped it onto cream card lots of the black came out. Weird, Yup! I loved it.
I added a favourite hobby craft stamp of Santa flying through the sky.A light dusting of embossing powder was followed by a quick blast of the heat gun. Lastly, I scribbled a little snow with an embossing pen and then used snowfoam white embossing powder.
I think I will use this technique again and again....I may also invest in some stamp cleaner!
