Eclipted Edger Background

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

The background on this one was created at a demo. I used a piece of Watercolour Card cut into 2 x A5 pieces. I misted Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Purple Paradise, Lush Pink and Electric Blue Ink Spray Mist onto 1 piece of the Watercolour Card. I misted a little plain water on top and then placed the other piece of Watercolour Card on top. I peeled the pieces of card apart and blotted excess off with Kitchen Roll. I kept my second piece for another project.

Working on my first piece, I placed the Leaf Print Mask on one half and misted through with water. I lifted the mask off and turned it over and placed on the other half of my background to get a negative water print. I blotted off with Kitchen Roll. I then misted through a section of the Stripey Spots Mask with the Lush Pink Mister. I turned it over to get a negative print from the excess ink in another section of my background and blotted off with Kitchen Roll.I then misted through a section of the Wavy Mask with the Electric Blue Mister. I turned it over to get a negative print from the excess ink in another section of my background and blotted off with Kitchen Roll.

This technique is adpated from a technique in the Dyan Reavely Distinctly Dylusional A Guide to Art Journaling Book (love this book!).

I cut the largest die in Sue Wilson's Ecliptic Edger into Coconut White Card 5 times to create a background. I glued it to my misted background using CS Glue in a Woodware Fine Tip Glue Applicator.

I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using dies #2 and #4 from the Square Stitched Peg Board Die Set and added it to my backgrounds using Woodware 3mm Foam Tape.

My sentiment has been created using the Alphabet Grid Die with Coconut Whte and Black Card. I added the tiles to my card using CE Mounting Cushion.

I added a flower and leaves to my frame using the Pinwheel Floral Die Set.
