I have been making this card over the past couple of days and have been really enjoying myself.
Messy and layering and something different for me .....
The background has been layered with paints, sprays, powders, stamping and mega flakes.
I hadn't used sprays and powders together before but I have learnt that
so long as the sprays are very dry first they played nicely together.
First time for me...to stamp with white and black acrylic paints..it won't be my last.
Used the Misti to get a really deep black stamp impression with the
'Love Is' stamp using Versa Fine Black ink.
The edge of the card has been heat embossed in gold EP
and the outer card layer grunged and hi-lighted with gold, red and black metallic paints and waxes.
I finished off by die cutting the sentiment and using aged black and gold embossing enamel
on the letters and on the card around the sentiment.
Even though it fly's everywhere I love this stuff! (even heating from underneath).
I loved how the Gold Mega Flakes looked with the flourish stamp in the corners,
down the right hand edge and hi-lighting parts of the Love Is stamp.
Parts of the card are shiny and parts flat and I like that effect.
I tried to achieve the layers by not using stencils (which I love)
but trying new techniques with paints, stamping, etc.
I had fun!
