- White, 300 gsm, deckle edged C6 card and matching sized envelope
- 9 x 12 cm black card panel - it was an appropriately sized off cut - a happy accident!
- 8½ x 11½ cm white card panel ....
- Distress Inks (applied with cosmetic sponges): Squeezed lemonade, shabby shutters, peacock feathers, festive berries
- Water flicked from fingers and allowed to "develop" before wiping with kitchen roll and drying with a heat gun (I'm not known for my patience!) as it should be COMPLETELY DRY before starting the next step.
- Paper Artsy lines image inked using shabby shutters and then immediately brushed with kiwi perfect pearls
- Paper Artsy splat image inked using peacock feathers and then immediately brushed with purple cosmic shimmer mica powder
- Hero Arts (from the delicate leaf clusters set) foliage inked in festive berries and the smaller foliage inked in squeezed lemonade before immediately brushing with red and gold perfect pearls.
- Large Hero Arts foliage stamped using Versafine onyx black
- Hairspray lightly sprayed over the finished piece to set the powders.
I THOUGHT about spraying shimmer goosebumpz over the finished project but thought that would conflict with the matte/shimmer thing going on with the project anyway!! F.Y.I. this technique was explained by Kate Crane in her article published in the November issue of Craft Stamper - check it out if you have the mag in your collection! And in case you can't see the matte/shiny thing going on - here's a bit of a close up!
Happy Sunday and, if you have snow and/or ice, please tread carefully
