Well, I have green hands and a fetching pink streak in my hair but have never been happier! For this second set of samples for the sensational Sheena I got to play with the new Luminarte Radiant Rain Shimmering Mists and colour concentrates from Creative Imaginations ( and some fab foils and stencils too...but more about those later in the week!)
Sheena said play and so I have! Being a real novice with these I have had great fun experimenting with effects and one of my favourites was using crunched tissue paper which when dry was then stuck on silver paper (Letratac on the silver paper then stick the tissue onto that). So here is the first play....
|mystic fern ( from Optimism set) on tissue.|
The fern was embossed using Sheena WOW powder ( brass sparkle) and the whole lot double embossed in clear embossing powder. (I love this result, it reminds me of Josephine Wall colours and I am thinking that there must be a way of turning it into jewellery....) The backing sheet is the wrong side of centura pearl which really is a perfect surface for distress inks and big and juicy ink pads .
I had 4 colour sprays to play with: ginger peach - a yellow, wine and roses - a purple, autumn leaf - brown/gold and jasmine - a deep pink colour and 4 concentrates (dabbers) ginger peach, wine and roses, jasmine and olive vine - a green.
Sheena will be using these in her show - 28 Nov on C&C - happy, happy!
