Alpine Village Christmas Card

I love playing with Catherine Pooler inks and I especially love ink blending with them. All week I have been playing adding depth by shading with the Black Jack Ink to almost get another colour blend.

I have mixed a previous release christmas stampset “Making Spirits Bright” for the sentiment and dainty snowflake and have paired it with the new Alpine Village stampset.

I first ink blended on watercolour cardstock with the Sugared lavender Ink with a mini ink blending tool starting from the outside and working my way to the centre of the panel. I then work with the grape crush ink in the same manner working towards the centre and having a light ink blending touch as I work my way in. Now for the added depth I used the Black Jack Ink and working with a light ink blending touch towards the outter side of the panel only.

I have heat embossed the sentiment with Opaque Bright White embossing powder and heat set with my WOW! Embossing Powder heat tool.

I stamped the Alpine Villages with Sangria, Grape Crush and Sugared Lavender and die cut them out with coordinating dies which I then adhere down with either liquid adhesive or foam squares.

I added a light mist of pearlescent sheen with Shimmer craft sparkle spray. To finish it off I added some clear squins from the crater lake mix.
