{Inspire Me Friday} White Embossing Times Two!

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy stopping by today with my final projects for the Oh, Christmas stamp release!  This time I made two separate projects…both using white embossing powder.

My first project is a card using some non-traditional colors, namely pink and light green.  I embossed the “Merry & Bright” sentiment using Versamark ink and white embossing powder, then watercolored the background using two distress inks (Shabby Shutters and Victorian Velvet).  Next, I used the same distress inks to watercolor the letters in the sentiment so their colors would be richer and darker.  Finally, I went over the letters with Wink of Stella to add some subtle sparkle.  The pink and green sequins are from our lovely Lisa’s Pretty Pink Posh “Sweet Pea” sequin mix!

Can you see the sparkle?

For my next project, I decided to make a pillow box (to hold a gift card), and I knew this wonderful sentiment would fit perfectly!  I embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder, then stamped the smaller pine branches using Versamark ink and embossed with green tinsel embossing powder.  The three red gems as “berries” are the finishing touch!
