I used this memory as inspiration for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge this week where the theme is Blue and Silver.
|Song sung blue.....|
I used a direct to paper technique with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, and then smooshed it around with some dry foam. Next came some music paper, for no reason other than I find sheet music feels festive :) Stamping the stylised Christmas tree in Versamark, I then applied silver embossing powder and heated it. Once everything was dry and cooled down I applied Rock Candy distress crackle over part of the tree and the music. It takes a while to dry, which is why I'm late with my post today.
I applied more distress ink around the edges in Broken China and then in Chipped Sapphire. Then I dripped some pretty large drops of water on the background. I applied more distress ink to the cracks in the crackle glaze and dabbed on some white picket fence stain here and there. I finished the whole lot off with a few random dots of Stardust stickles and a lovely silver bow at the top of the tree.
