It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I want to show you how to create a mask, emboss resist, and pearlize penguins. Yes, all today. All right now! Let’s go!
- Cut the Thick Basic White Card Stock to 4 1/4″ X 11″ with the Paper Trimmer. On the 11″ side score at 5 1/2″. This is your card base.
- Cut the Basic Black Card Stock to 5″ X 3 3/4″. Attach with Stampin’ Seal. This is your outer mat.
- Cut the Basic White Card Stock to 4 1/2″ X 3 1/4″.
- Stamp the penguins first with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Also stamp the one sliding on a piece of scrap card stock or copy paper. Cut out the penguin from the scrap paper to create a mask. Punch out the other penguin.
- Place both penguin masks down and then stamp hill also in black ink. (By placing the masks down the hill won’t go through the body of the penguin.) Then stamp another hill on a scrap piece of card stock. Cut out the top curve with Snips.
- Stamp trees down below the penguins also in black.
- Stamp snowflakes above with Versamark Ink and then cover with Clear Embossing Powder, then heat with Heat Tool.
- Now place all the masks down and color the top half with black ink and a Blending Brush. Tip: Wipe off snowflakes with a paper towel to get off excess ink.
- Take a piece of waxed paper and squeeze about a dime’s worth of the Basic Black Pearlized Enamel Effects on to it. Then take the smallest Water Painter filled with water and drip about three drops of water on to the enamel. Stir well. Then paint the penguins to pearlize. Let dry.
