Eileen Hull Collaborates with DCWV

For the month of November the Eileen Hull Design Team and DCWV are collaborating with a month long blog hop. This is my second piece using the fabulous papers from DCWV.
This time around I have opted for a Christmas Card with a mixed media feel.
I cut a piece of the paper from the Cranberry Christmas Stack to fit my card front and then embossed with Eileen Hull's Waffle Embossing Folder.
I rubbed over the embossed area with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to highlight the wonderful texture.
I then applied DecoArt Media Crackle Paste over a bauble stencil and allowed to dry naturally.
PaperArtsy Sunset Beach Infusions were then applied to the top of the bauble and then spritzed with water to activate. I allowed the ink to sit for a few moments and then dried with my heat tool.
I also applied some Chocolate Box Mega Flakes over the top of the bauble to give a metallic touch to the design.
I die cut two star pennants from white card using Eileen Hull's Banners and Pennants Thinlits Die and then coloured them with more of the Infusions.
I applied DecoArt Metallic Lustre over the raised areas using my finger again to add more metallic touches to the design. I also added delicate splatters of Tarnished Brass Distress Paint to the background and then dried with my heat tool.
To complete, I added a december 25 Small Talk Sticker and layered the design onto another piece of the Cranberry Christmas Paper Stack.



Thanks so much for stopping by; I hope you are enjoing our month long hop. Tracy x
