Stamping on Cork


Today i'm stamping on cork! You can do all sorts of things with cork, my favorite is to stamp on it. And for today's card i not only stamped on it but i got all inky over it!!

I am submitting this card to The Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. The Inspiration is the photo below. I really loved the mix of white, green and kraft in the photo!

I started with a sheet of adhesive backed cork and i inked one section of it with green pigment ink. Set that aside to dry. Next i hand cut some white cardstock to make my snowy horizon. I added glitter glue along the top edge and set that aside to dry also.

Next i added some woodgrain and white chevron pattern paper to my cardbase. Then i stamped with some Liquid Pearls, yes that's correct Liquid Pearls!  I just used some extra clear acetate, added a dollup of white opal Liquid Pearls then with a small star stamp i smeared the pearls around a little. Then i cleaned my stamp, then tapped my stamp in the puddle i made and stamped it on the pattern paper. Here is a close up of what stamped Liquid Pearls looks like:

Set that aside to dry (lots of drying time with this card!! lol) But by now the cork is probably read, i stamped the Christmas trees over my green cork, then cut them all out. I added my sparkly white horizon on my cardbase, then stamped my sentiment. Last i added the cut out Christmas trees! I really love how this card turned out!!
