I'm heading up to my parents this afternoon to take my Dad back to the hospital for some more tests. I have scheduled blog posts for the next couple of days but please be patient with website order as although Nathan is a very competent house sitter he really isn't clued up enough to get orders sent out yet.
Here's today's card which features a Pixie Powder technique that I demoed a few times on Hochanda on Sunday/Monday.
So, for my latest favourite Pixie Powder Technique - I made a palette by sprinkling some Aqua Lagoon and Plum Twist CS Pixie Powder onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I spread it around using a Dusting Brush.
I then pressed the Justrite Snow Days Background Stamp into the powder palette - there is no need to ink the stamp with Perfect Medium unless you want a two-fer (see Hochanda Catchup Sunday 25th Sept 8pm). You will see that the background stamp now has Pixie Powder on it.
I put my palette to one side to use again and then spritzed the background stamp with water. I added a piece of Watercolour Card (it can be Coconut White) to the stamp and rubbed all over to transfer the image. And voila! Stamping with Pixie Powders!
It dries in just a couple of minutes.
Justrite Inside and Outside Christmas Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Cobalt Archival and cut it out using the Justrite Snowflake and Tags Dies. I cut the snowflake die out again out of Deep Blue Card. I glued them together, offsetting them slightly to give a shadow and added some 5mm White Pearls.
I stamped a sentiment on the inside, again from the Inside and Outside Christmas Sentiments Stamp Set using Cobalt Archival and job done!
My next workshop at Creative Expressions HQ in Kettering is a Stamping Masterclass on Wednesday 12th October. Here we will be doing lots of practice with a wide range of stamps and stamping mediums. You can book for this one via my website here.
