|View from the side, really showcasing that crackle|
Here's a Christmas card I've just finished (my first... might be my ONLY, lol lol lol).
The background piece is the old Caught in Crystal technique (acetate, squirt dimensional adhesive - Diamond Glaze, Glossy Accents etc - on the back, then add reinkers. Crumple up some giftwrap tissue, plonk on top, allow to dry).
What I've done here is the updated version - exactly the same but using alcohol inks (Tim Holtz) which gives a much brighter effect, plus it dries a lot quicker. This needs to be limited to 3 or 4 colours, or it starts to look muddy. Of course I've added my own special touches: mica powders, glitter, German Glass glitter etc etc.
|Stamped and embossed in gold onto black card, I've painted with Twinkling H20s and coated really heavily with Tim Holtz's Crackle Accents - it really picks up the sparkle! I'm really impressed with the result and will be buying more!|
Hope you like it!
