Gingerbread Aqua Pigment Christmas Card
Happy Friday crafty friends! Lauren here, sharing a Christmas card made using the Gingerbread Aqua Pigment.
I started out by taping down a panel of aqua pigment paper using purple tape. I started by wetting the paper with clean water and then did a wash of the Gingerbread aqua pigment over the whole panel. I dried it with a heat tool and then began layering the Gingerbread over and over, drying with the heat tool in between. When it was finished, I thought the brush stroked and deep brown color gave it a wooden look, so I sliced up the panel into wooden "boards". After flicking some white paint to look a little bit like snow, I used a hole punch to get a tiny circle of craft foam, and adhered it to the end of a pencil so that I could stamp the little "nail" circles with embossing ink and heat them with Gilded embossing powder. I popped each "board" up on foam tape for some dimension, and arranged them on a panel of Midnight cardstock. I heat embossed the sentiment from the "Merry and Bright" stamp set also using Gilded embossing powder onto the heat resistant vellum, and clipped the end into a banner tail. I cut a similar but slightly larger banner shape with the Midnight cardstock, and put very small dots of Brutus Monroe glue behind the embossed words to stick the two pieces together. I adhered the banner with some foam tape, and added some gold stars and navy sequins all over the card to finish it off.
