I spent the day yesterday hindering John Lockwood in his Workshop at Creative Expressions HQ. I hadn't intended staying all day as I have so much to do at the moment but somehow I was still there at 4 o'clock! John is a wiz at kinetic cards and boxes, which I'm not, so it was a great day and I learned lots but now I have less time to get stuff done! Oh well! John's next workshop in in June - keep an eye out on John's blog for details to be announced soon.
So, I put this card together quickly when I got home using a couple of leftover demo bits once again - thank goodness I have so many! Apologies for the shadows but I had to have the light on when I took the photos as it was getting a little late!
Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A Dies and Coconut White Card. I lined them up on my tan mat which was on my pink plate and then added the Wired Mask and then the base plate. I
ran them through the Grand Calibur and removed the mask. I then ran it
through the Calibur with the cut sandwich. I rubbed some of Phill Martin's Decadent Teal Gilding Wax over the surface.
Smoothie. Instead of adding the ink through the mask with the usual blending action, I dabbed it through so it took on the texture of the Smoothie. It gives a more mottled effect.
Perfect Medium into the die cut, added Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Decadent Teal Embossing Powder and heat set. I added more Perfect Medium, more powder and heat set again.
Aqua Silky Crush Ribbon in half lengthways and tied a bow using both pieces. I added an Aqua Dazzler.
Teal and Coconut White Card and a bit of piercing completed the card.
I'm heading up North again this afternoon - this time more to the east to Leeds for a demo at Samuel Taylors Roseville Street tomorrow. At least no M6 this time!
Thanks forstopping by.
