Inque Boutique Christmas

>> Monday, November 17, 2008

I made this card for a card challenge my girl Rachel hosted in a local craft group we're both in.

Here was out sketch to use...


and here is my card...


I used an Inque Boutique lil' set. I dont even remember the name, sorry! And i just found out that Inque Boutique is no more. I'm so sad about that! I really loved their stamps. The company was sold and the new owners are going to continue to sell the product that they have made, but will not be making any new. :(

Anyhoo - i stamped my tree with memento ink on georgia pacific paper and colored it with copic markers. I added a bit of a signio white gel pen to highlight. I covered the "ornaments" with liquid glass by CTMH. NOTE: add your white gel pen to the liquid glass or whatever glaze you use AFTER it's dry. The wetness of the epoxy will make the white run. Learned that the hard way.

I took a stardust glitter pen and dotted it on top of the stamp design to give a pretty look to the garland. Its hard to see in the front photo but if you turn it a bit so the light reflects off of it it's really pretty. You can kinda see that in the photo to the left.

I distressed my edges with my tim holtz edge distresser and mounted my sentiment (also colored with the same copic as the ornaments on the tree and covered with liquid glass) onto some cardstock. The patterned paper is old school basic grey. I stitched around everything just for some extra dimension and viola! there is my card. :)
