Inspire.Create.Challenge 014 - Lift Me Up Marbled Ice

I am thrilled to be taking part in another Inspire.Create.Challenge, and this time it is one of my favourites; a sketch challenge.

Lift Me Up Marbled Ice Sketch Challenge

Although I love sketch challenges, this one had my stumped for a while and I had a few goes at my project, but once I knew what I was aiming for, it all came together fairly quickly. 

I wanted to try out the 'Ice Technique' but decided to find an easier version of it, which I bring to you today. This is, if you like, the easy version, using the fantastic Marbled background stamp and a standard Classic Ink Pad with clear embossing powder, to get the effect. It worked particularly well with the balloon from Lift Me Up because it looks like clouds and sky (in my eye anyway).

I have used the Sale-a-Bration Shimmer Ribbons on both versions of the card and also added rhinestones, just in case there was not enough 'bling' on the card with the foil!

I hope you will take a look at the video to see just how easy it is to get this effect. The only thing to bear in mind is that stamping on a slick surface runs the risk of the stamp slipping, but also remember that the foil card does not like too much heat being applied to it.

I would love to see lots of entries from my regular followers this time around, so if you are tempted, please take part. If you go over to the Inspire.Create.Challenges website (just click on the picture of the sketch above, you can see all the amazing projects the other Design Team Members have come up with, then have a go yourself!
