Woodware and the White Fluffy Stuff!

The Woodware team are embossing in white for this week's challenge, so of course, I just had to go with plenty of Dreamweaver Glossy White Embossing Paste for a super snowy scene. In order to make the embossing really pop, I started with a glossy white cardstock panel that I'd placed in a puddle of Color Solutions Alcohol Inks (Iceberg and Sugarplum) on my craft mat and spritzed with Thinner. When dry, I paste-embossed the Season of Joy stencil design, and covered the wet paste with Stampendous Multi Crystal Glitter Mix, and set it aside to dry.

The words were pasted on a strip of vellum, and covered with elements from the Stampendous Winter Micro Glitter Kit. The base of the card features a panel of white cardstock, machine embossed both horizontally and vertically with the Dreamweaver Stripes/Plaid stencil after swiping ColorBox French Blue Chalk ink over the stencil each time. This works as an ink-press technique.

The panels were matted and layered, and a blue rhinestone crystal was added to the star in the design.

The rest of the team will be sharing their version of this challenge all of this week, so be sure to check them out on the Woodware Blog.
