Challenges and I'm really enjoying my time here. I had another wonderful image to play with again this week...
...Saint Nicholas himself.
This weeks image comes courtesy of DigiDarla Designs.
This week, I used my watercolour pencils to colour the image (I bought some new watercolour pencils a couple of weeks ago and can't stop using them!)and I think they look fab with this image as the colours aren't too bright, they are muted and keep the image looking vintage-y.
After colouring the image - I wanted to make a plaque rather than a card.
I painted a piece of chipboard using olive green emulsion paint.
I stamped the chipboard using a scroll motif then heat embossed it using silver embossing powder.
I also inked the edges of the board and embossed it using the same silver powder. After embossing, I inked over the top with the same stamp using vintage photo distress ink to give it a layered, muted effect.
I covered them with clear ink and embossed them using gold powder.
I stamped the poinsettia stamp several times on tan core'dinations card. I cut the whole flower out three times and cut the center of the flowers a further six times.
I layered the flowers up and arranged them on the bottom of the plaque.
Another great week at Digitally Sweet.
