Hi all - well, still snowy here but not snowing, so that's good! A couple of cards today using Sheena Douglass current 4 day deal stamps and featuring 2 different background techniques.
Firstly Be Happy - the background is a caught in crystal technique using tissue paper, Luminarte pourables, Adirondack pitch black, acetate and Klear floor polish. The tissue is coloured with pourables and a little extra glitter When dry stamped front and back with flowers . The tissue was then laid, face down on acetate and the back of the tissue then liberally coated in clear floor polish and left to dry. Once dry it was trimmed and backed onto silver foil paper. The card is finished by stamping a sentiment and flowers with black stazon on the acetate which were then highlighted with a white gel pen. The card was finished with a flower coloured with Spectrum Noirs on Neenah and a border added using a micron pen.
A 6 x 6 square was then cut for the background and edged using more distress ink and a second, smaller square used for the topper which has a sentiment stamped and then the whole thing is covered with clear embossing powder. The mats for both are copper coloured mirri - just to ring the changes.
