Let It Snow Handmade Card by Martha Lucia Gomez
Hello everyone! If you don’t know I live in Florida and snow for us is only on cards, photos or when we travel during the winter. Today, I used my entire imagination to create a Snow card and you will be surprised when you find out what I used to make my card.
I stamped the branch using VersaFine Onyx Black. Then using the Misti, I stamped again the image in VersaMark slightly above of the black image. I combined two different images to create the scenery because I don’t have a single image in all my stuff that offered me that I wanted…can you believe it!
I embossed each image with clear embossing powder and after I finished the process, I was able to sponge the sky behind using Memento Teal Zeal and expose the snow-laden branch using a masking technique. When I completed the snow and sky I decided to add a little contrast and at that moment I discovered that I don’t have Angel Pink Memento Ink but…
I have imagination and I applied some ink with a Memento marker Angel Pink over an acrylic block and applied the ink with a sponge dauber around the sky to create the perfect contrast. To finalize the card I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set Bright All Night using VersaFine Onyx Black and pasted the stamped layer over a Whisper White card base using Tear It Tape.
