One week left to join in the "Chipboard and Metal" challenge at Frilly and Funkie! Marjie chose the challenge theme and she says anything goes as long as your project includes both chipboard and metal. So are you ready for this??? My chipboard deer is from a recycled box of Special K. In the spirit of Christmas and CC2C #29, Linda has us at page 64, of Tim's book, "Texture Fades" techniques.
After I cut out my sweet little deer from the Special K cereal box, I cut out a couple more shapes in black to use as a highlight. I ran a pen line of Spica Black Glitter along all white areas for a little pop. His eye is Black Stickles and I covered the black brads as well. The tree was silver and I covered that in a green glitter embossing mix. The white snowflake was covered in embossing ink and white embossing powder. The embossed background, I followed (mostly) the steps on page, 64. For my inking, I wanted a more candy cane kind of thing. After I was done, I wanted a bit more white on my raised areas and inked over that with clear embossing ink and then white embossed. This is one time that I like when embossing powder lands where you don't want it, kind of gives a little snowy feel!
