Red isn’t the first color you would normally associate with snowflakes and winter but I thought it would be fun to spice up a few Christmas cards with Imagine’s Color of the Month Chili Pepper! I did just that by combining Lady Bug Fireworks Spray and Summertime VersaFine Clair inks. Check it out!
Time: 30 minutes
Cut a piece of white cardstock 4” x 5.25”. Stamp “Burst of Snowflakes” background stamp onto the card panel using VersaMark ink.
Sprinkle the stamped image with MBoss Iridescent Opaque embossing powder. Shake off excess powder back into the pouch. Melt the powder with a heat tool and let cool.
Spray the entire panel with Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray in Lady Bug (red). Let the panel dry naturally or speed up drying with a heat tool.
Once the Fireworks! spray has dried, sponge a layer of Summertime VersaFine Clair ink (orange) over the entire panel to give it that orange-red look of chili peppers. Wipe off any excess ink from the embossed areas.
Stamp the Cuddlebug Penguin on a piece of white cardstock with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink. Watercolor the image by scribbling the ink from Memento Dual Tip Markers directly onto the Craft Mat; blend and pick up the inks off of the mat using a waterbrush. After the image was dry I added a few details with a white gel pen.
Trim both the image and the snowflake panel. Adhere the snowflake panel to a black card blank using Tear It Tape. Attach the penguin to the card using foam tape.
Stamp the sentiment “Hello There” on a scrap of white cardstock and affix over the penguin.
