Festive Friday CHIRSTMAS CARD blog hop #9

MAY YOUR HOLIDAYS BE OVER THE MOON
You should have just hopped her from Chris Hurley's blog
The technique I used here combines both jewelry and card making techniques.
I stamped the original design on card stock both kraft and a white. I chose the area I wanted to focus on and rubber stamped it on a piece of Ecoartboard. Both were colored in with Faber Castel water color pencils. The art board was covered with a coating from an embossing pad. For the white card I used Tsukineko and for the Kraft colored card I used a stained versamark pad.
When the embossing ink was still wet I covered the boards with Ultra thick embossing powder (UTEE)
and heated it. I did this process several times to make a thicker and smoother glaze.
The papers I used were embosses Bazzil 8 1/2" x 11" sheets.
This gorgeous stamp is called "Moon Party" from Viva Las Vegastamps! They also carry the Ecoartboard, embossing stamp pad by Tsukineko, and High Gloss Embossing Powder and miracle tape that i used to adhere the art board to the card, it is quite strong and easy to use.
