Happy Saturday everyone!
Today I want to share a card I made with this month's GORGEOUS kit
and of course I have photographed each step, for you to see, how it came together.
I spritzed my edges with a lilac mist. (which I made using the Izink's that came in the last 2 Medium AddOns) Then I brushed on some white acrylic paint and while the paint was still wet I sprinkled diamond glitter over it. let it dry for about 10 minutes and then fixed the glitter using hairspray.
I hold the oval die cut to my base card and thougth it was a little too big. So I folded it double and cut around, using a deco-scissor. (Later on, I decieded that I needed to do that again.) I inked the edges with 2 different shades of lilac. I used colorbox chalk cat's eyes.
I took 1 of the fairies that came in the Main Kit. Gave it a light coat of white acrylic paint, and whilst the paint was still wet, I sprinkled diamond glitter over the wings. Set it aside for later use.
Then, I wanted to use an idea I had earlier: …..>> grab some buttons <<…..
(yeah Kim that's right) and… ah well let me show you
Then I hot glued it to my card. This is going to be the base for the oval shaped die cut. I could have used foamtape alone, but I thought it was taking too much time to go in between the lines of the thread.
Using the Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Dreamcycle, from the Mediums AddOn… I watered it down a bit and, almost dry brushed it to the top. If you didn't get the Mediums AddOn, you can use a deep peachy color water paint for this too. (Don't make it too wet!)
After the Dazzlerz dried, I added some structure paste with a palet knife and let it dry. (this dries fast) Then using the Shimmerz Texturez in Artie-Choked, also from the Mediums AddOn, I dabbed some on top of the structure paste using my finger. If you didn't get the Mediums AddOn, you can use any paint of your liking. The texture is already there because of the structure paste.
***If you don't have structure paste: You can take Gesso and add sand to it, give it a good stir and it is ready to go.***
I hope you like it, and picked up a few tips.July 12, 2014 at 1:05 pm #242195
A few tips… that's an understatement… I picked up a ton! 🙂 One of my greatest scrappy pleasures is reading a tutorial by you and seeing how you come up with the fantastic elements you put on your cards!
Thanks so much Paulien for sharing your techniques with us. This is a stunning card. I love the buttons and thread and the beautiful shimmery wings on the angel and the cool way you rolled the paper at the top, and…and…and… Love it all!July 12, 2014 at 2:48 pm #242196July 12, 2014 at 4:02 pm #242197
Wow!! Yet another fabulous card tut!! You're amazing Paulien!
"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."July 12, 2014 at 6:13 pm #242198
