As promised, here's a sneak peek from tomorrow's shows. An easy peasy card with a new stamp, one of the new Cosmic Shimmer Ink Spray Mists and a new mask. Lots of new goodies on the shows!
For the background, I inked through the Abstract Mask with Stormy Sky Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. Now for a technique pinched from Sue - I spritzed a little Cosmic Shimmer Ink Spray Mist in Riviera Blue into the corner of a plastic tray. I ran some round beads through the ink ( you could use marbles). I then let the beads roll all over the background, leaving a trail of ink behind them. Cool, eh? I then ran the piece through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Ooh La La Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Stormy Sky.
I stamped the Zentangled Happy Birthday Stamp using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I dabbed a little of the Riviera Blue Mist onto my Craft Sheet, added a little water and coloured the design. I cut it out using Spellbinders Diamond Effects and inked through the die with Stormy Sky.
I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Navy Silky Crush Ribbon and added a Fancy Pearl Embellishment.
I assembled the card as shown adding a White 8mm Pearl in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.

I love how you have made this card, I haven't seen this technique before. I am certainly going to have a go at making my own backgrounds after watching your show using masks too. You are in charge of your shows now and looking quite at home in the studio...Love it~~~MabexReplyDelete
Wow Julia. What a beautiful card. Fairly simply but so effective. The colour is great and the bow adds the finishing touch. Well done. Love Nicola xReplyDelete
Lovely card and colours xx hazelReplyDelete
Hi Julia, Fabulous Card everyone seems to be into Zentangle at present but I much prefer a stamp where I can colour as I really don't think I could do such fabulous Stamps justice by doodling on them if they were clear, so this Stamp for me is ideal. thanks for the peeks!ReplyDelete
Take Care Hugs from Sam x
Great looking card Hav set TV to record I've done a similar technique borrowed from Ali Reeve & used scrunched up tin foil You scrunch it u in a way that you get "highs & lows" & the ink only then goes onto parts of the tin foil (if you see what I mean) Teminded me to try that again but perhaps your technique gives a better result Will be watching with great interestReplyDelete

Hi Julia, I love this card. especially the Zentangled Happy Birthday Stamp. Did you zentangle it yourself or can you buy the ready-made up stamp?ReplyDelete

Brilliant card today, love everything about it. I love the marble technique I use this in school and the children love it - as do grown up children!!!!!
Looking forward to the shows.
Have already posted a comment , or so I thought , but if you get another post- apologies! I love this card - the background is gorgeous and I tried to work it out before I read the details - failed again! I love the strong focal point of the sentiment and the bow and colour, well go without saying really! May Julia's Blue Phase last for a very long time!
Take care on the roads tomorrow,
A vibrant and lovely card, Julia. Love the colours and the background. Gorgeous stamp. Will record tomorrow's shows, love my evenings when I've recorded shows.ReplyDelete
