This card actually started at crop night Friday night and was finished yesterday morning. At the crop, one friend had The Crafter’s Workshop Layered Stars Stencil (I may need to own that one!) and another friend got a brand new quote set from Dyan Reaveley, The Right Words, which I *needed* to use!
So I spread a layer of matte multimedium over the card and layered a couple of scraps of book paper I had left over from another (unfinished) project, which I sealed with more medium. Then I used the star stencil and light molding paste, which I heated so it would bubble and get that awesome velvety look and feel. I coloured the top star with Distress Markers and smeared them around to blend a little, then stamped some script over pieces of the card. Finally, I stamped the quote, added a few mists of Dylusions Ink Spray and called it a night.
Yesterday morning, M wanted to paint with “the shiny pots,” aka my Creative Imaginations Twinkling H2O’s so I added layers of those to the, so far, boring card. And now it’s all good!
I wish I could photograph the shimmer of these paints, they’re really incredible! And I love the quote, that whole set has amazing sayings – I may *need* that as well! 🙂
I love how dimensional the stencilling turned out:
Look at those dots! But the best is the top star:
Look at all the rays shooting out! And the blended markers! Awesome…
I did buy a couple of new stencils at crop night and I’m itching to make use of them. Plus, I bought some Golden heavy body acrylic paints to mix with my molding paste so I think I’ll have some fun with that combo tonight!
Come back tomorrow and see how it all turns out!
