I have been MIA as I took time out last week to indulge myself in another passion - embroidery - and went on a four day retreat to simply sit and stitch. Bliss.
I made this card for a young man who loves his snow sports when the family heads up to the Central Plateau (in New Zealand) to stay on Mt Ruapehu.
I started by blending my Broken China, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks on the blue cardstock... I was not happy with the result, but had to leave the project to have a meal, and when I came back I was very surprised to see they had dried and looked wonderful!
The snowboarder image is from an Avery Elle Stamp set Stoked, and coloured with Polychromos, and his visor was given dimension and shine with some Glossy Accents
The sentiment was embossed with gold on the white, die cut 'slopes', which were edged with
The stars were embossed with platinum embossing powder.
