Hope you are well and enjoying your weekend?
We’ve been having a blast at Port Sunlight.
What a day!!!
I’ll tell you more tomorrow, but for now,
let me showcase the beautiful snowflake stamp set which was shown on HOCHANDA TV last weekend.
Writing whilst hurtling down the M6 is no mean feat,
so I think we’ll keep it short and sweet!
With brother Steve behind the wheel,
We’ll be home fast – and that’s a deal!
So here’s a little technique revisited….
Dust with talc.
Stamp Merry Christmas, the lovely new Ribbon writing Stamp
into place with Versamark.
It’s always best to blot,
and use second generation ink on this occasion.
So: Ink, Blot, Plot!
Dust lightly with Perfect Pearls.
Pick a colour, any colour…
Take a tissue and buff lightly,
to remove excess Mica Powder from the black card..
Now go with the snowflakes again, this time with a second colour.
I went for Pearl white and Gold as a combo.
I find the Clarity Stencil brushes are soft and spread the Mica Powder beautifully. I apply the powder with a paintbrush and remove it with a larger stencil brush.
With a ruler and a Versamark pen, add lines down to the top of each snowflake, and transform them into baubles.
Allow the pen to dry for 5 minutes before applying Mica Powder again.
Buff to a hi-gloss with tissue now.
Because we used talc at the outset, the card will come up like new.
Sorry, can’t find the finished card photo!
And going a bit green looking for it!!!
But you get the picture.
bye for now….
