The World is Yours to Explore - Pinkfresh Studio

Good morning! Yesterday was once again my day for a Facebook Live video! If you missed it and want to take a peek, you can find it on the Pinkfresh Facebook Page - this weeks video is available HERE. Still planning to do this each week on Thursdays as schedules allow - so I hope you'll be able to come join me sometime! There was one giveaway for someone who watched live, and there is still one for someone who watches on replay - I will announce the winner late this morning, so there is still time to pop over and leave some comments for a chance to win!

I shared a peek of yesterday's card for the Live on my blog hop post - and had someone comment that they didn't have Facebook and wished I had shared more info. Just in case you are reading this now, I am doing my best to post more photos and info here on my blog after the Facebook Live, so you can always check back here later for that info! I'm trying to get that all posted the next day after each live, as much as I am possibly able. So today I'm sharing the card we made in yesterday's live video - playing with the new Through the Trees stamp set, heat embossing, and Distress Oxide ink to create this layered scene! I think it would be a fabulous graduation card, what do you think?

The way this fabulous stamp set is designed allows you to stamp it once in one color of ink, rotate it 180 degrees, then stamp again in a different color for a fun filled in effect. I used my MISTI to do just that, then also stamped over it with embossing ink so I could add clear heat embossing over the top of my trees. I wanted to create an ink blended sky, so this allowed the trees to "resist" the ink sticking to them.

I did some ink blending with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Oxide inks, then wiped the excess off of the heat embossed trees - which removed whatever oxide ink was clinging to the shiny surface.

I added some white splatters with some thinned down white acrylic paint - I love how it looks a bit like falling snow! Next, I added a frame using one of the new Essentials Release - Pretty Frames, then finished off with a heat embossed sentiment from the set on a strip of black cardstock!
