Thursday is my day for sharing my latest creation for Creative Expressions , so without further ado let me do just that.......Vintage Poinsettia...
Tim Holtz Christmas Time .
I created a background on a cream square of cardstock, with a text paper panel added. I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink and gold Perfect Pearls mixed with lots of water, all smooshed together on a craft mat. I dipped the card into the inky mess, and dried it off. When Perfect Pearls come into contact with water, they form a fab metallic paint. When dried, it gives a wonderful texture and shine to your work....
Archival Ink . This ink is waterproof, so was the best to use in this instance. I knew I was going to be using water on top of the stamping, so didn't want any smudges! I smooshed Barn Door and Peeled Paint Distress ink onto my craft mat, then picked up the colour with a Water Brush . I added just a little smudgy colour to the holly leaves. Not too much, just a hint...
Tarnished Gold Cosmic Shimmer Spray . Hopefully the shimmer shows up in the pictures, its very sparkly in real life!!!
To complete the card, I distressed the edges of the panel, the mounted onto a cream mat, then a brown card blank.
Hope you all like it!
Next week I'll have another project using these fab stamps, and this time I'll be showing you exactly how to make it with lots of step by step pics!!
