Pixie Pinwheel Daisies

Hi Bloggers.

I'm spending the day with a friend prepping for my Mixed Media workshop that I've scheduled for Sunday 14th August so I'm afraid I won't be able to do a post run, sorry. Normal service will be resumed tomorrow.

I managed to order John Lockwood's new stamps yesterday. I've loaded the stock onto my website should any of you wish to order them. I expect they'll arrive tomorrow or Friday and I'll aim to send them out as soon as I can. I've put a 10% discount on them till midnight on Friday night or while stocks last. The easiest place to find them is here.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Creative Expressions Provencal Lace Embossing Folder.

I misted a piece of Watercolour Card with water and sprinkled some Plum Twist and Candy Pink CS Pixie Powders over. Once dry, I dusted it with an Anti-Static Bag and then stamped the image from the Justrite Pinwheel Daisies Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I popped a little of the 2 powders into separate sections in a Mixing Palette, added little water and then painted the flowers using a Water Brush. I added a little White Pearl Mixer to the Candy Pink section the lighten the colour and used to paint in the centres of the flowers.

I cut it out using Spellbinders Regal Allure. I cut the largest die in the set out of Black Card.

I cut the embellishment die in the set out of Black Card twice. I covered them with Flake & Glitter Glue using the CS Flake & Glitter Glue Highlighter. I then sprinkled CS Sparkle Star Diamond Frost all over.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearl Corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Lisa Horton is launching a One Day Special on Hochanda this evening at 8pm. I'm offering 10% discount on products that I have in stock on my website from the shows. You can find them here. Offer applies till midnight tomorrow night.

 Thanks for stopping by.
