There's a young lady who just finished her study at the National Film and Television School in London as a film editor. Her mum who lives in Luxembourg asked me to make a special card for the big event.
So I created this:
When I asked the mum about the colours she sent me a picture from the The Grand Budapest Hotel, this is why I used a strong red and some purple for the background:
The text VÉGRE! means AT LAST :-)
And I will share you my special, lately developed technique how to safe an ink printed image. I had to find out something to protect my Oscar-statuette, so I figured out a trick.
When you printed your image cover it with embossing ink but don't wipe or smear over it, you can use only tapping movements with a sponge. When it's done, put clear embossing powder on the whole surface and heat it. If you want a shiny image then it's just this and it's ready. But if you want matte image put a layer of Ranger Distress matte collage medium but just after your image got totally cold.
What I used:
Sizzix Framelits Die, Rectangles
MFT-Die Namics die, Mini Filmstrip
Clearly Besotted Stamp, Happy Days II
Ranger embossing powder, Gold
Ranger Distress crayons
Ranger Distress Collage Medium (matte) - for protecting the surface
With my card I would like to join the Monday Challenge of the Simon Says Stamp blog: USE YOUR FAVORITE TOOL, as I used many times my two favourite tools, the Big Shot Plus and the heating tool.
