Hi Everyone, I seem to be in an Autumnal mood. I was at a loose end on what to do and thought I would have a look at sketches I save, to see if something got me thinking. One in particular caught my eye and I decided to do some real playing.
I have recently bought some Pixie Powders, now I see why quite a few of you have been raving about them. I water brushed a masked area and
threw sprinkled them on them on to the wet area. The result blew me away. I hope you like it too.
The next thing? what was I to do on top to complete the sketch? The stamps I used on my last card got me and I stamped a bare tree onto the powders. I then water brushed a piece of card and copied what I had done on the main card, stamped a sentiment and die cut it. A piece of ribbon, when did I use ribbon last? and onto a black layer to match the stamps and my card was complete.
Being a CAS card is unusual for me, but I really like this card and with the result that I never expected.
Pixie Powders, Burnt Orange & Rich Gold - Cosmic Shimmer
stamps - Tonic free Simply Cards & Papercraft #208
label die - Tonic
ribbon - stash
I had to show you, but I expect many, if not all of you, who have used these powders knew, that when I stamped (with Stazon) the powder showed through the stamping, even though I did the watercolour etc. before the stamping. I am mesmerised LOL.
I will enter the challenge of the sketch
Just a little something else -
My Gniece who is off to train as a midwife asked me if I would do a label for a jar she has, to hold 40 baby feet, why 40, because she has to deliver 40 babies before she qualifies. She is three and a half hours from us, so it had to go into the post asap. I emailed her a few ideas and she liked this one then sent her it and instructions/ What am I on about? she's a teen she'll know what to do and think me a fussy old woman including instructions.
Anyhow here is her choice of design and colour of vinyl. I cut it out of gold vinyl on my Silhouette and added it to transfer paper so all she has to do is place it onto the jar. The backing comes off and she just adds the image and the transfer sheet to the jar, then removes the transfer sheet. I cut the shape the same size as the area she needs to cover on the jar, the image will then fit the jar - IF I have done it properly.
I had finished this post and then received an email with the jar finished, she's a clever girl.
