Trust the Magic

Hello, Alicia posting a card today.  I used several techniques to create this magical card.  I used a new stamp offering from the store, Finnabair Trust the Magic. First, I used Distress Oxide ink and a stencil to create a subtle background.  Then I stamped the image with black pigment ink and embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder-Bridal Tinsel.  I know you expect that powder to create a subtle sparkle and it's there but when you use black ink to begin the effect is a bit different.

 

Here's a side view where you can see the embossing from a another angle.  It's still hard a little hard to see the iridescent sparkle.



After the background was created, I die cut the frame and embellishments.  I used Elizabeth Craft Designs Dotted Scallop Squares to make a frame.  I was left with a beautiful scalloped square that I will use on another project.  I cut the Sue Wilson Industrial Chic Swirl just once in gold. I cut that one piece into several parts and adhered to the back of the frame which I popped up on dots to create dimension on my card.  This photo actually shows a bit of the iridescent embossing.


Memory Box Mini Gears is just one die which makes it easy to cut a lot.  I used it twice once in gold and once in pewter to compliment the inking.  I sprinkled those gears around the card.  I used a couple of different gems and stickers to fill in some of the centers of the gears.


One last look at my stamped image.  I also used the stamp set on some purple paper scraps and tore the edges.  After I inked the edges, I tucked those pieces into the corners that did not have as many die cuts.


I used the following products from the store:












I also used 
Black Pigment ink
metallic and other specialty paper
Ranger Distress Coordinations paper
gems, stickers and a bingo token
