I just love how the layers really add a ton of interest to my card. I did extreme layering to make my snowman pop! I colored my snowman with Copic markers and added Crystal Stickles to the snow, the hat and the snowflakes for added dimension. I used Lawn Fawn patterned paper and black cardstock.  I hope you will find some time to create a card using  our Perfect Layers tools to get the perfect layers on all of your crafting projects.

Here is Roxie’s card:

Wildflowers and Butterfly Rox71 11-14

 

Creating the background: Scribble Copic marker in three shades starting with the darkest at the bottom. Drop on blending solution and I then used the Perfect Airbrush to spritz on the solution to create smaller drops and then spritzed on yellow alcohol ink.

In order to keep the nozzles of both bottle and air brush in line with each other I rest the air brush on an empty marker container, placing the screw knob inside a section added stability.

For those who aren’t familiar with alcohol inks, they dry very quickly so I worked with the ink coming directly from the bottle – squeeze a little ink out so it runs down the nozzle and blow it to the paper with the air brush.

Spritzing ink

 

Once the ink and blender solution dried I stamped the panel with a background image in yellow but you have to look close to see a bit of added texture. This shows better in real life.
Now the background is ready go to be used as an under panel or in my case stamping on addition images.

The 1/16″ and 3/16″ borders were cut with Perfect Layers Mini using a craft knife and the Perfect Cutting Mat.

Simple stamping turns into so much more when you add layers! I stamped this beautiful image and masked the bottom snow area, using Eclipse Tape. I cut the image out with a Spellbinder’s rectangle and airbrushed using Copic BG75. While my image was still in the die I added a little piercing by hand along the airbrushed portion of the rectangle. I used my Perfect Layer Rulers to frame my image multiple times.

I wanted to add some falling snow back in to the scene after airbrushing. I used a very small ball stylus and dipped it in Copic Opaque White to create some falling snow.

Layers again on the inside! The Silent Night sentiment and All is Calm sentiment, I thought went perfectly with this image. The finished card is an A2.

I used a stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti on my card- North Pole Wishes, Let it Snow Confetti Cuts and Triple Chevies Confetti Cuts. I used my favourite PPC products- Perfect Cutting Mat and Perfect Layers Mini, using the 1/16th measurement to create layers with black CS around the large grey patterned paper, the stamped panel and along the other chevron dies. Matting your layers in black makes everything pop! I added some black machine stitching and coordinating enamel dots.
