This card & purse combo combines a couple of weird techniques. Click the link if you'd like to go to the tutorials:
Glue pen emboss resist (for the silver pattern on the card) & Faux suede (for the purse.) The purse also uses distress embossing & the purse template is here and Faux Bleach with no bleach (to get the gray tones on the card.) The sharp white line details are done with a Signo gel pen.
- Print template onto desired cardstock (I used Basic Gray)
- Cut it out & Score it where indicated
- Stamp it with a background ( I used Stitched in white craft ink)
- Emboss with clear embossing powder & heat (until dark lines show in spots--for a distressed look)
- Let cool & Rub the whole thing with white craft ink (I use a damp paper towel then heat gun it a little to dry it)
- Crease folds with a bone-folder
- Embellish & Assemble it.
Part A (glue pen embossing-again, lol):
- Print your line image out onto cardstock (I used a flower background doodle I made--printed onto White Naturals cardstock.
- Trace over the lines of your image with a Sakura quickie glue pen. You may need to work in stages since you want to:
- Emboss the wet glue pen with clear embossing powder & heat it.
- Wash over the glue pen embossing with ink (I've used basic black ink)
- Remove excess ink (off of embossing)
- Paint areas of the blackened (or darkened) image with a wash of White craft ink. An aquapainter is perfect for this.
- Layer with more white wash and add details with a Signo gel pen. (you can also tint it with pastels.)
The white tab thank you is made using SU's round tab punch and is stamped by markering the 'thank you' of 'thank you very much' from Much Appreciated.
Card ingredients: Cardstock, Naturals white, (for glue pen emboss resist), Basic Black mat, & Basic Grey card; White taffeta ribbon (SU), white organza (unknown mystery organza-sorry), white square 'ribbon brad' (by Bazzill), white Signo gel pen, Sakura glitter pen (clear).
Thanks so much for reading, :0)
P.S. Do you guys get sick of the full instructions?
I include them in case any of you are beginners... and to describe the whacky things I do, lol.
