Skull and Cross Buns - Three-tone Metallic Stockings

Good morning

I'm continuing on this morning with more cards I made yesterday using various stamps from Skull and Cross Buns Rubber Stamps.

For this one I used the Christmas Stocking stamp once again, but this time I embossed it with three different metallic shades.

On a panel of white cardstock, and using my MISTI to get even alignment, I stamped the stockings in a row using VersaMark ink.  I then sprinkled on some pewter embossing powder over the top third of the stockings.  Then holding the panel the same way I sprinkled with copper, and then finally covered the bottom section in gold, and heated to melt the various powders.

Once cooled I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle before stamping the sentiment and popping the panel onto the card base using fun foam.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Skull and Cross Buns - Christmas Stocking; Paul Pascual - Christmas Messages
  • Ink: VersaMark; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Pewter, Metallic Copper, Metallic Gold Rich
  • Die: MFT Die-namics - Wonky Stitched Rectangles
