"Cats are smarter than dogs. You cannot get eight cats to pull a sled through snow."
I am back with another of my molten background cards. You can see other examples here (including a description of the technique), here, and here.
For this card, I dry embossed some red cardstock using the Darice Christmas Tree embossing folder. Then I Versamarked all over and heat embossed with some copper embossing powder, repeating the process several times to get a good molten effect. Sorry for the shadowy photography!!
Here's a close-up for a better peek at the molten look. LOVE!!!
This doesn't look very coppery. My camera doesn't do well with colors when I am trying to show the shimmer. (One or the other, Jeeves, but not both. Yes, sir.) But I think you get the idea after seeing several of these cards, right?
I mounted this panel onto a red card base. Overall, it is almost a monochromatic look with the shimmery copper over the red cardstock and the red/orange tone rhinestones. I like how it turned out.
Let me know what you think, too. I appreciate you taking time out of your busy holiday schedule to visit me. I love reading your comments!!! Hope your Christmas week is lovely!
