    Are you ready for summer as much as I am????

    Today I wished like going to the beach and enjoy the sand between my toes. Letting the sun warm my body and DREAM!
    So… my card is based on a beach theme.

    Here we go:

    1-9.jpg

    For the base of my card I cut a piece of sticky back canvas of 7 x 7 inches. I wanted my card to have a lot of texture so I cut a roll of bandage in half.

    2-9.jpg

    raffled it and cut 4 pieces of.

    3-9.jpg

    I added the bandage to my canvas using multi medium and let it dry.

    4-9.jpg

    I swiped with my distress ink pad over the bandage. I used faded jeans – broken china – peeled paint

    5-7.jpg

    then spritzed it with water to make the colors blend. Heat dried it with my heat tool.

    I added black soot distress ink to my edges.

    Then, and I LOVE this stuff, I took some Irridescent Medium (Windsor & Newton) and dabbed it all over.
    the shimmer it gets from that stuff, is AMAZING!!!

    8-7.jpg

    I selected my embellies

    9-7.jpg

    I decieded to add a little bit of Gesso in some spots.

    11-7.jpg

    Glued the netting to my canvas using hot glue.

    12-7.jpg

    Then I hot glued all the shells, dew drops, and a string of twine, in which I made a few knots.

    13-7.jpg

    I hand cutted a foot for (don't know the word) my pointing direction standard (don't laugh)
    and handcut the plates. I also brushed on some yellow-gold pigment powder. (Pearl Ex)

    here are some shots of the shimmer you get, if using Irridescent Medium.

          OWWWWWWWW!!!!! I do own gauze, I do own sticky-back!!!! I don't have shells, oh dear 🙁 (
          BUT I think I'll start looking through my scrappy stuffs and I know that I'll be taking out my blues, greens, whites and browns because Paulien made a GORGEOUS card that has me dreaming!!!!!

          ***(Paulien, the word you want is signpost. And I'm not laughing. You are fluent in two languages. I am fluent in one. You don't know how much I admire you for that.)

                Paulien this is just gorgeous and how clever to use the bandage gauze for texture. You always come up with these great idea, I would never have thought of that in a million years and it looks so cool. You are a true artist!

                #166832

                Awesome! I love it!

                    Paulien your card is gorgeous! Where did you get your netting???? I can't find anything like that around here.
                    Off to the drug store for some gauze bandages and that Irridescent Medium

                    #166836

                    At the drug store Kathi. The netting is bandage too. They use it here in hospitals to keep the bandage in place.

                      I was just going to ask what the other white netting is from.
