Hi! How are you all today? I'm back to business now I am back from my holiday. Stay tuned for some more photos in the next couple of days.
Last night I had a play with using a new technique that fellow member KathyK at Happy Little Stampers showed us. (You can read the post and see some examples HERE)
Here is my card -
Basically, you need the following items -
Cardstock - normal or watercolour
(or other waterbased medium - Pearl Powders, Distress reinkers, Glimmer Mists, Color Wash sprays)
Aersol can of Laundry starch (I bought mine from the local supermarket)
My card isn't really the best example for this technique. I need a little more practice. This was also my third attempt after epic fails on my first two. So on my last attempt I tried using watercolour paper instead of plain cardstock.
Technique - spray your cardstock with the starch then sprinkle your brushos over the top. Spray starch again and then lay crinkled up cling wrap over your panel. LEAVE it for at least 30 minutes to allow the paints to go up into the creases of the cling wrap. You are trying to create a marble looking effect.
The brusho colours I used here were Ultramarine, Turquoise and Purple.
I die cut the word Hello (from Whimsy Stamps) on a strip of white card and trimmed it down to size. I die cut the hearts out of scrap from my main panel (which was die cut using Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangle Die) and covered them with glossy accents.
I'm hoping to refine this technique as there are wonderful examples to be seen and mine just didn't quite cut the mustard ;)
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes (no twist this week)
Mema Crafts - Use a Die or Punch
Incy Wincy - Clean and Simple
Southern Girls Challenge - Punches or Dies
Thanks so much for looking xx
