We Only Have This Moment - Moments - Layered Oxides


Hello there on this Monday!!  For those of you in the US we have Thanksgiving this week.  I hope yours is filled with love and family!!

If you hadn't heard, Quietfire Design has new stamps!!  Woo-Hoo!!  You can find them all in the What's New Category on the website.  I used one of them on this wintry card, We Have Only This Moment.  It's a beautiful stamp with a wonderful message.  It's good to look ahead and make plans but we can only be sure of this moment and we don't want to miss it!!


I've taken some step out pictures.  Distress Oxide Inks have been used to create my panels.  For the main panel I thought I'd layer my colors one at a time rather than do them together.  I started with Wilted Violet on my craft sheet sprayed with a lot of water, dipped my paper in and dried it.


Next I used Salty Ocean with not quite as much water.


I then did a layer of Picket Fence but forgot to take that picture.  You really don't see the white of the picket fence.  It just kind of softens/lightens some areas and I thought it worked well here for that more wintry feel.  After drying it, I then lightly sprayed water onto the panel, blotted it and dried it again.  This created lots of little dots that looked like falling snow. 


I used the A Way With Stencils Leaf and Snowflake Spray stencil along with Versamark Ink and Snowflake Sparkle Embossing powder.  I inked through the stencil, removed the stencil, added the embossing powder and heated it.  I then added ink and embossing powder around the edges creating a thicker area along the bottom so it looks like a layer of snow on the ground. 


I chose one of the Tim Holtz Christmas Paper Dolls tinting it with Distress Marker Wilted Violet by coloring on the girl and then blotting/rubbing off the excess with a paper towel.


I stamped the quote onto vellum with Archival Ink Jet Black, trimmed it to size, and attached it to the panel by putting a drop of glue behind the center of the snowflake at the top and also gluing the girl over the edge a bit and then adding a die cut snowflake over another corner.  The snowflake is an Elizabeth Craft Designs die.  I added double sided tape to the top of a piece of white cardstock, cut the snowflake, removed the liner of the tape and glittered the snowflake with Microfine Glitter Cool Diamond.  In the center of the snowflake I added a Tim Holtz Mirrored Star.


The base panel is colored with Distress Oxide Salty Ocean.  Again I used Versamark Ink and Snowflake Sparkle Embossing Powder around the edges and then wider at the bottom.  

Finally I die cut the word Moments from Distress Mixed Media Heavy Card, inked it with Distress Oxide Wilted Violet, sprayed it with water, dried it, sprayed it with Mica Spray Pearl (Ranger - Wendy Vecchi) and attached it to the panel.  


I hope you've enjoyed today's project!!!  Have a wonderful week!!!

Hugs, Wanda
