Copic Smooshed Alcohol


I was trying to find  a technique that would look good on a Christmas card.  The technique that I found is from Technique Junkies and is called  Copic Smooshed Alcohol.  The cardstock used is from Paper Temptress. For this technique you use a piece of glossy cardstock.  I decided I wanted to use Silver Metallic Glossy.  You take a piece of craft sheet and mark on it with several copic markers.  I then put several drops of hand sanitizer to the craft sheet.  I took the glossy cardstock and moved it around in the mixture on the craft sheet.  I just kept moving the cardstock around until I got the look I wanted.
The base for the card is Heavenly white Ultrasmooth.  The main image was stamped on Kunzite Mica/Metallic.  The wisemen  image was stamped on Amethyst Mica/Metallic.  I backed the main image with Dark Purple Basis.

Let's add some snow

I thought I was ready for Christmas.  I started Christmas cards in November.  To say the least other things came up and now it is nearly December 1 and have very few cards made.  So I decided my post  for Paper Temptress needed to be a Christmas card.

I used Neenah Super Smooth Ivory for the base card , sentiment and panel that the tree is stamped on.  This cardstock is so easy to stamp on and gave me a great image.  The stamped background is  from a stamp set called You've Got This from Stampin Up.  The tree is also from Stampin Up.  I embossed the tree and then added the snow.  I had never used snow, but like the look.

The green layer has some shimmer to it and is Fairway Mica Metallic.  The red layer also has some shimmer and is Vermillion Malermo Perle.
