I'm using two different PDO stamp sets, Home for the Holidays and Swinging by with Holiday Cheer.
|Home for the Holidays
|Swinging by with Holiday Cheer
I printed the truck from Home for the Holidays onto a Copic friendly cardstock. I had an idea to create my winter sky background using Distress Inks and blending tools. Now I need a a mask for my truck. This is a pretty easy fix. I printed the truck out again on regular copy paper and cut it out. I applied a thin coat of Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue to the back and spread it out with my finger. I let it dry for a few minutes and now I've got a mask! I put it over the truck on the card and started blending with Distress inks. I started with Chipped Sapphire, then moved to Seedless Preserves, Victorian Velvet and finally Antique Linen.
The background blend isn't perfect but no worries! I love the reveal when you take off the mask. It looks so crsip and clean!
And now for some coloring magic with Copic markers and some background splatters.
Truck: N5, R59, R37
Tree: N5, G85, G82
Tires: N7, N5
Hubcaps: C3, C1
Truck Shadow: W1
Windows: RV0000, RV000
Now you're probably wondering where the multi media aspect comes in. Let's take a look at my finished card first.
For the tree in the truck I added dabs of white embossing paste.. While it was still wet I added glitter. For the truck windows I added glossy accents. I set this aside to dry and went to work on the sentiment.
I took a label shaped chipboard and smooshed on clear embossing ink. Then I sprinkled it with Wow Midas Touch embossing glitter. Learn from me, emboss from the backside if you don't want a glitter explosion. LOL! I added another coat of embossing ink and the Midas Touch glitter. I heated it again until it was all melted. I added some purple ribbon through the holes and tied a knot on one side. Then I wrapped it around the back of the panel and tied it through the other hole. I added foam tape to the back of the tag and attached it to the card. Next I printed the Merry Christmas sentiment out and cut it into an oval to match the tag. I added foam tape to the back and added it to the tag. I then added the whole panel to a gray card base.
There ya go! One of my first attempts to create a multi media card. How'd I do? Here's a few more pictures of the finished card.
And a side view to try and capture the embossing paste texture.
