Irit is here and this month I am going to show you my winter projects made with mostly bare chipboards and a LOT of embossing powders. Those are easy made projects and all you need are a couple of Tando Creative chipboards and a lot of white/blue/glitter WOW! powders.
So here is a first of the projects: altered chipboard snowflake ornament.
It comes as 2 separate bare chipboards that you connect into this 3d gorgeous ornament. First you need to cover them with some white paint. After a couple of experiments I found that white pigmented ink (Frosty White from Clearsnap) is the best white coverage you can get that is fantastic for heat embossing without clear ink over the paint. So cover both shapes from both sides with a think white pigmented ink layers and then cover them with a mix of all possible blue powders. The powders I used here are Nice Ice Blue,Opaque Primary Azure,Opaque Pastel Blue,Fluorescent Blue and Blue Blast.The mix of all of them, layers or parts over the white ink made this delicious blue enamel effect seen on this piece.
The second is my altered chipboard banner and again I used some of the Blue powders from the previous list and some white and clear glitters, such as Sparkling Snow, Clear Hologram Sparkle and White Twinkle. WOW! Embossing powders have so many Winter mood powders to pick for your Winter projects.
On this project I used clear embossing ink and heat embossed all small stamped snowflakes over SNOW letters with 3-4 powder's colours. Then the whole piece was covered with Clear Gloss embossing powder for this shiny glossy look. The small chipboard snowflakes were heat embossed over white pigmented inks and the outer triangles were also covered with Silver Sparkle embossing glitter.
Hope you like my Winter projects and would enter our monthly challenge with your own WOW! PROJECTS!
