Sunday Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

I had a great day at Domino Crafts yesterday. The new shop is fabulous - do pop in if you're in Wolverhampton. John Lockwood is demoing there today.

Today I have another sneak peek from Tuesday's Woodware One Day Special -

For the background, I started by adding Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers Distress Crayons from Set 1 onto a piece of Watercolour Card. I popped a little water onto my Craft Sheet. I dipped my finger into it and used it to move the Distress Crayon around on my card, adding more crayon where necessary.

Next, I popped the Puerto Rico Blocks Mask on top. I used a wet wipe to remove the crayon through the mask.

I made sure that the card was 100% dry and then dusted with an Anti-Static Bag. I stamped the Woodware Circle Flowers and sentiment using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I cut my image out using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Background Rectangles.

I coloured the flowers and leaves in using CS Pixie Powders in Sun Yellow, Peacock Green and Aqua Lagoon using a Water Brush. I edged the piece with Vintage Photo Distress Crayon from Set 3.

I added a little CS Blue Teal Polished Silk Glitter to the little circles in the flowers using a Quickie Glue Pen.

I completed my card my adding a Black Card mat cut from Sue's Double Pierced Background Rectangles and popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.

Phill Martin is continuing with his One Day Special on Hochanda today with shows at 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm. I'm offering 10% discount on items I have on my website from the shows.
