I had such an awesome day on Monday! After dropping off greeting cards at Anderson's, I attended a class with Donna Downey!! What a fun and awesome teacher she is. I took her 40 techniques class. Talk about action packed! I'll be sharing photos at Stamping, Painting, and Color make me Giggle later this week.
For my project today, I went through three background techniques in my mind, and then settled on this one. :o)
Started with inking up the Art-Kure elm tree image with VersaMark dazzle ink pad onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock for Alcohol Marker. I sprinkled ultra thick clear embossing powder and heat set. Tip I learned from Donna. For the thick powder, heat from the back. That way your powder does not fly all over.
Next, I colored onto the paper with Faber Castell gelato sticks. I bought these little sticks last year and had only used them once. :o) Donna inspired me to get them out. I dipped them into water and colored all over the card stock. After coloring the entire piece, I dipped my finger into the water and smoothed out all the color. I wiped away the color over the embossed image with a baby wipe.
Thanks for visiting!
Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
