Just Add A Sketch- JAI45

This week we have a cool sketch from Danielle.

And this is what I came up with using Sandi MacIvers new technique of painting with embossing powders.. fun!

I used white, silver and gold embossing powders for this card and for the main image used the tree out of the Snow swirled stamp set.

I solid brayered over the top with Early expresso. The snowflake background stamping on the Very Vanilla background  was with the leftover mixed powder.

The crochet lace is called Chantilly lace and is available in the new Summer Mini catalogue available from the 1st December.

You can see some pearls in there too. I seem to use so many of these in my crafting of late ..just as well they come in a pack of 150!

I decided to keep it simple and not put a sentiment on the front and I’m rather pleased how it turned out. I hope you can play along this week and go and check out the fab cards the other Design Team girls have come up with here


Ive been a bit slack in blogging lately as I have my Whakatane Extravaganza tomorrow and have 27 ladies coming. Next week is my Gisborne Extravaganza.  So its been head down doing stuff for these.  All will be revealed next week!

    Absolutely stunning! Would never have thought to mix embossing powders like this – what a fab technique! You card is lovely and doesn’t need a sentiment. The gorgeous tree says it all 🙂

    Best wises for a fun Extravaganza. Can’t wait to see the big “reveal”!!

    Hi Delys! Can you give me a quick hint about how to do this? I tried opening Sandi’s tutorials … and there was some “glitch” … and it shut down my computer! Now … I am afraid to try again! Did you put all the glitter colours on at the same time? Or did you apply and heat one colour at a time? Sorry … is it rude of me to ask??? I just love what you have done with this card! Hugs xxaxx
