Crafter’s Companion Advent Calendar – Day 3

Today’s die is Father!  It is a very small die and I decided to cut several of them and use them as a background for a masculine tag.

Please watch my YouTube live video to see how I made the tag. If you like what you see, please leave me a thumbs up and consider subscribing to my channel.  Don’t forget to click the bell so you don’t miss anything!

 

I used a couple of my favorite techniques in this video. The first was using Walnut ink crystals from Imagine with Fireworks spray. The second technique was applying several layers of embossing powder and stamping an image into it while it is still hot.  You can get some really great textures and effects this way.  Sometimes you have unexpected results, like in today’s video.

This process of revealing the die and making a project live is proving to be very rewarding and challenging.  I am having a great time so far.

I hope you will join me to see what we create tomorrow!

Happy crafting!
