Woodware One Day Special Shows continue today

Hi Bloggers.

One Day Special shows continue today at 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm. I hope you can join me.

I have another two-fer for you today.

Here's your first card -

I started by misting a piece of Coconut White Card with PM CS Vintage Blue Ink Spray Mist through the Droplets Mask. Once dry, I stamped it with sentiments from the Woodware Celebrating You and Sweet Mermaid Stamp Sets using Watering Can Archival.

I dusted with an Anti-Static Pad. I added Clear Perfect Medium down the left-hand side and a little at the bottom. I added CS Gold Detail Powder then sprinkled over some CS Fools Gold Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder, CS Antique Gold Mica Flakes and CS Aurora Hexagons Glitter Jewels. I carefully heat set from below, adding more powders, mica flakes and glitter jewels as desired.

I trimmed, matted onto Black Card and then onto Coconut White Card.

I stamped the mermaid from the Woodware Sweet Mermaid onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I coloured her in with CS Essentials Watercolour Palette and CS Summer Garden Watercolour Palette using a Water Brush. I did not colour her scales on heer tail. I added Quickie Glue to some of the scales on her tail. Once clear,I added Sea Green CS Polished Silk Glitter. I added more Quickie Glue to more sections of her tail. Once clear, I added CS Ice Blue Polished Silk Glitter. I added Quickie Glue to the remaining scales and once clear added CS Brilliant Blue Polished Silk Glitter.

I cut my mermaid out using scissors leaving a thin white border around and added her to my background using CE Mounting Cushion.

Here's your second card -

I stamped the Woodware Les Chats onto Watercolour Card using Onyx Black Versafine Ink. I coloured in using CS Essentials Watercolour Palette and a Water Brush.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Plenty of Birthdays Stamp Set using Versafine.

I dipped the end of a brush into Inky Midnight CS Acrylic Mixed Media Paint and popped some spots around my card as shown.

Once dry, I edged the card with Clear Perfect Medium by running a Clear Perfect Medium Pen along my Tim Holtz Ruler. I added CS Fools Gold Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set.

I finished my card by matting onto Black Card and popping onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I've loaded pics of all the samples from the shows to the Gallery Section of this Blog and to an album on my Julia Watts Crafts Facebook Page.
