This month the featured product is Dimensional Elements. I love CTMH's Dimensional Elements (DEs), & use them for a lot of projects - cards, scrapbook pages, altered art. I made some simple cards this month to showcase a variety of ways to embellish your DEs. I used the "Sunrise" pattern from the Wishes Card Confidence Program book. I chose the Hooligans paper packet & Dimensional Elements Stars.
For the first card, I used my favorite method to color DEs - ink & a sponge dauber. Very fast, very easy, & very effective! I like to ink the edges of the DE using a coordinating marker - the marker really allows you to get in to those hard to reach places. Sunset ink was used here. Once your image is inked, you could also stamp directly onto the DE to create a pattern or some words.
I used the opposite sides of the "fingerprint" B&T for the next two cards, just to change it up a bit. For this card, I used the emboss resist technique to create a pattern on the star. I stamped a background stamp from Spot On Backgrounds with versamark & then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The entire piece was then inked with sunset ink using a sponge dauber. The embossed pattern resists the ink, resulting in a white polka dot pattern. This is where the fact that CTMH's chipboard is white really helps :)
Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing these simple ways to color & cover your Dimensional Elements; and I hope you are inspired to use up some of your chipboard stash! To see some of my previous posts using Dimensional Elements click here.
