Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

Today I have a sneak peek from tomorrow night's One Day Special on Hochanda. I'm lucky enough to be able to bring you 10 of the colours in the Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powder range. My head is buzzing with the many techniques that you can do with these fab powders so I plan to show as many of them as possible before they sell out!

As heads up - I have some Justrite Stamps and dies on the show at amazingly low prices so you will need to be quick if you want them. I expect they'll go the same way as the Flower For Your Thoughts Stamp Set that I had on my last ODS which sold out in the first hour! I can't match the prices on these so you won't find them on my website.

Here's your sneak peek -

For the background, I popped the Flower Bed Mask onto a piece of Watercolour Card. I added some Peacock Green and Golden Mint CS Pixie Powder over the top and then I spritzed with water. I put aside to dry.

I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares and Double Pierced Squares Set B. I added 3D Foam to the back of the frame and added it to my Mask Background. I trimmed away the excess using scissors.

I spritzed some water onto another 2 pieces of Watercolour Card. On one piece I sprinkled Peacock Green and on the other piece I sprinkled Golden Mint.

Once completed dry, on the Golden Mint piece, I stamped the tulips from the Justrite Applique Flowers Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. On the Peacock Green piece, I stamped one of the stems from the stamp set twice. I cut all the pieces out using scissors and added them as shown.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set onto Coconut White using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I stamped the sentiment frame onto Black Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut both pieces out using Justrite Vintage Sentiment Tag Dies and added them to my card using 3D Foam.

Thanks for stopping by.
