It's been an extremely wet Wednesday here in Suffolk so I had a very soggy doggy walk (but Fergus really enjoys the puddles so that was fun) and I was almost able to swin to the village library bus! Today I'm back with my second card made at the Prima workshop at my local craft shop Keep on Crafting on Saturday. I added a few items from my stash after the workshop as I decided to change a few pieces and add elements when I got home.
White Gesso paint
White Wow embossing powder
Net & Wire Prima Stamp
Chrome & Iris Color Bloom Spray
Pebeo High Viscosity Studio Iridescent Silver Acrylic paint - stash
Prima Lace Trim (flowers)
Die cut flower
Wow Clear Embossing Powder
Wow Clear Stamp pad & bonding powder
Wow fab foil
Sparkly twine, staples and pearl (coloured with a Sharpie) - stash
Silver Papermanis Embossing Powder - stash
Lilac Heat It Up Embossing Powder - stash
Wish sentiment from 7 Gypsies stamp set - (Papercraft magazine exclusive)
I prepared the base at the workshop spreading on the gesso with a spatular to give it some texture. More texture was created by used the stamp and white embossing powder to create a resist against the Color Bloom sprays. These are now on my wish list. The lace flowers and die cut flower are also sprayed with the Color Bloom, the die cut flower was then embossed with clear powder and scrunched, I added the pearl at home.
I originally painted the flourish pink but wasn't happy, so added foil but I felt it was too over-powering so painted it to silver at home. I also added foil to the base, I like the patchy look of this rather than a solid block of foil as I feel it adds to the texture and interest.
A few extra bits I added at home are the Wish sentiment embossed with two colours of powder mixed and a touch of silver embossing around the top and bottom edge. Then I took some sparkly twine and randomly stapled it The twine is left over from a nail and string art kit from the 1960/1970s, if you don't know what I'm talking about click on this pinterest link to take a look at some modern ideas using this retro hobby.
