As promised, I have a sneak peek for you today from the shows I have on Hochanda on Thursday.
I used a piece of Black Card. I popped some CS Flake & Glitter Glue onto a piece of Wax Paper. I picked it up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and used it to 'ink up' the stamps I wanted to use. I only added glue to the stamps when I was ready to used them. I stamped them, leaving the stamp on the card no longer that 3 seconds. I popped the stamps into a bowl of water as I finished with them. I find this is the best way to clean the stamps.
I added CS Warm Sunrise Gilding Flakes to my stamped scene. I removed the excess using a piece of Rubit Scrubit.
Anti-Static Pad. I edged with a Clear Perfect Medium Pen using my Tim Holtz Ruler. I added CS Black Mirage Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set using a Low Speed Heat Tool. I matted onto Antique Gold Pearl Card and then popped onto a Milk Card blank.
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I edged with Clear Perfect Medium Pen and embossed with CS Black Mirage BS EP. I matted onto Antique Gold Pearl Card and added to my card.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Julia Lovely Christmas card gilding flakes are alsways a winner. Julia I'm devastated now I have my computer back it seems that your recent Hochanda shows are not on the rewind programmes there seems to be none between 30th July and 15th August! I do hope they will put them on rewind soon as I really want to see them!ReplyDelete
Great card. I must try this 1-2-3 technique againReplyDelete
Lovely card that someone who is religious would be delighted to receive at Christmas.ReplyDelete
Have treated myself to a satellite recorder box so can can now set your shows to record and watch on a large screen rather than the iPad. Just about to set the r cord status!
