ICE Resin Blog Hop.....

Good Morning everyone,
 
Prize promotional picture if you want to use it

 
Welcome to the Quintessentially Christmas Blog hop from IndigoBlu, over the next three days 21st, 22nd and 23rd August the designs team will be featuring some of there fabulous work using the fantastic Ice Resin and new IndigoBlu Christmas stamps and there will be some great starter kit giveaways, just leave a comment on this blog post for your chance to win.......

Here is my gift card with an Ice Resin Christmas Heart Bauble to hang on the tree.......


I used the lovely Rockin Robin stamp and Noel stamp at the base of the card for the easel stopper.......




I used a heart shaped bezel, stamped the image on a separate piece of card, coloured it with Pro-markers and IndigoBlu white pearl paint.


Once I had cut out my heart shape to fit in the bezel, I then added a layer of  double sided sticky film. I peeled off the other side and added some ultra fine iridescent glitter and then used a lolly stick to scratch the glitter back to reveal the picture again........
 

I then mixed up a small amount of my Ice Resin and poured it in to the bezel and left to set overnight.......
You can really see the glitter in the photo below......

The background picture and the base stopper were stamped, embossed and coloured and painted and then matted and layered on to my card.......


I love Ice Resin and the way that you can preserve something and make something a little more special whether it be a piece of art or jewellery or a gift......why not have a go.....
