Thanks to everyone who watched the shows yesterday. They were really fun. Today I'm sharing the card I did as the first demo in the 5pm show yesterday.
I started with a square piece of ivory card. I scrunched it up and opened it out again. I ran a Tea Dye Distress Ink Pad over the top. It settled on the peaks. I then spritzed with some water, waited a few minutes and then ironed flat with my encaustic iron. I picked this technique up from Tim Holtz. Next I splatted some Old Paper, Tea Dye and Pumice Stone Distress Stains. I remembered seeing Dawn Bibby once stamping a large background stamp without using an acrylic block so I did this with the Creative Expressions Clocks Stamp and the Creative Expressions Scattered Words Stamp using Sepia Archival. I then spritzed the background with Dark Bronze Mica Powder (from the Cosmic Shimmer Metallics Mica Spray Set) which I had mixed with some water in the spritzer bottle provided in the set.
I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Mechanical Handbags Stamp Set using Sepia Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured it using the Pumice Stone Distress Stain and then cut it out.
I scrunched up a piece of Idea-ology Kraft Glassine Paper, opened it out and then tore it to a size suitable to put the handbag on.
I stamped 3 of the small tickets from the Creative Expressions Tickets Stamp Set using the Sepia Archival and embossed with the clear powder. I coloured the edges of the tickets in with Cosmic Shimmer Dark Bronze Mica Powder. I dyed some silver staples with Latte Alcohol Ink and used then to attach the tickets to the background.
I inked up the sentiment with Perfect Medium and brushed some Pale Gold Mica Powder from the Metallics set onto the inked stamp. I melted some Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Metal Ultra Thick Embossing Powder and poured it onto my craft sheet. I then stamped into the UT with the sentiment stamp. I left it for a little while and then removed the stamp.
I assembled the card as shown adding a Creative Expressions Faux Screw Brad in Antique Copper in each corner. In the demo card I had added some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Golden Pearl Pearlescent PVA.
Hope you like the card.
Thanks for stopping by.
