I thought I'd share a sneak peek from Wednesday's shows today. The emphasis for the shows is on the new Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paints and Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paints. I have lots of techniques to share with you - hope I get the chance to show them all.
Here's today's card -
Cosmic Shimmer Warm Gold Sparkle Texture Paste spread through the Random Fleur de Lys Mask. The paste takes 4 to 5 hours to dry naturally depending on temperature and humidity. You can heat set it, takes approx 10 minutes. The finish, if heat set, is slightly smoother to the touch. It kinda bubbles up a bit as it dries - a bit like liquid applique. All my samples for the shows have been left to dry naturally.
There are no dies on the shows so I have been having fun using some of Sue's new dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Gratitudes Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using one of the dies from Sue's Californian Collection Decorative Frames (Set B). I cut a larger die from the same set out of Soft Gold Card.
Champagne Silky Crush Ribbon and added a Vintage Black Button.
Black 8mm Pearl in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Olympic Gold around the edges.
I've made some colour swatches of the Sparkle Texture Pastes on the show including 2 new white based ones.
Below is Silver Moon, Warn Gold and Gunmetal on black then white card -
here, I'm just waiting for the Frosty Dawn and Icicle Blue.
Thanks for stopping by.
