It's Dana from Dana G. Crafts and I'm so excited to be sharing my first card here as a WOW! Design Team member. As you know, our monthly theme is 'rainbow' and I used various techniques for my rainbow card today.
To begin, I pulled out A2 sized bristol paper and ink blended it with rainbow colors of distress oxide inks. I then die cut several circles from black card stock as shown.
I stamped some geometric images from Sparkle & Shine Stamp Set with Embossing Ink and sprinkled Metallic Gold Rich Pale Embossing Powder and heat set each of them.
Then, I applied anti-static powder to black card stock and drew some lines using Embossing Pen and ruler. I heat embossed them using same embossing powder with ornament images.
I also heat embossed 'happy everything' sentiment from Studio Katia Birthday Greetings stamp set beside the bottom-left ornament.
Next, I started to make my own embellishments with embossing powders using melting technique. It's my very first time to try this technique and it was so much fun!! For this, I melted Melt-it Powder, Hot Gossip, Coral Beach and Sparkling Snow.
I know most crafters use heat tool or single hot plate for melting embossing powders. But, I was just wondering that my warmer and tealight makes it possible or not, so I tried it.
When I used warmer with two tealights for small ribbon, it took more time than heat tool, but I was so happy that my hands were free during entire process.
So, I used one more tea light and more powders for another ribbon which I used as a photo prop and I think it saved my time to some degree. Oh, I used Pretty Little Bows Silicone Mould for both ribbons.
For mixing powders and creating marbling, I used wooden skewer as shown.
To finish, I mounted embellishments where I wanted them using Ranger Multi Medium Matte (small circle ones) and hot glue gun (ribbon).
I hope you enjoyed this card. Thank you so much for joining me today!
