Shimmer to the third degree

BG is left over from trying to create teal out of blue and green oxide spray that was smooched on to white text vellum copy paper. I used my homemade butterflies in flight stencil and black shimmer paste. Then traced a line of the color changes with quickie glue pen and added glitter. And the third shimmer is gold acrylic paint in splatters. Added sentiment strips and thin strips of copier printed b&w stripes that was run through Xyron.

Flowers for Summer

I don’t have much black cs, especially anything that would water color very well, so I improvised. Using my white text vellum copy paper and a short bristle brush I applied a thin coat of black modeling paste and allowed to dry. Took about 10 minutes. I then stamped and heat set in white the flowers and sentiment. Using a small brush and white gouache I painted the areas I wanted color. Once that was dry I painted the petals pink and green on the stems with water colors. When this was dry I brushed on the flowers Wink of Stella for some shimmer. Glued Art Glimmer Elements in Redlands color, which is a combination of glitter and what looks like hard coffee grounds, to the tops of the flowers. Once I glued my trimmed focal piece on to a green cs base I dry embossed one edge with a swirl ef then mounted this on white cs base.

Succulents for Thank You

For this stab at creating with Teal/Turquoise I smooched my green and blue spray oxides from the glass mat to white text vellum copy paper. I used a full sheet and once trimmed down I used the intense color portion to stamp this tall succulent. Added some turquoise ink from a stamp pad with paint brush and water then fussy cut. Stamped lower flowers with black ink then colored like the cut out. Added all my layers to white cs base. Attached my sentiment strips then hand drew the accent lines. Splattered with the dark turquoise ink pad smeared on glass mat with a spritz of water then added color to paint brush and tapped splatter. Added white accents with gel pen.

Simple with new technique

The gals over at CAS Mixed Media wanted us to stamp through a stencil. I don’t recall that I have every done this. Plus I had just gotten a new stencil. I had meant to order this wheat in the 6″x6″ but got the 12″x12″ and had no idea how I was going to use it. Made for a good base for the 5″x7″ card base. After sponging the warm yellow I stamped a random circle bg stamp in black. Stamped the sentiment in black and added a line for the boarder in copic to match the wheat on only two side.

Like this even better

From the previous project I had the snippets leftover. Plus this plaid was my first go at combining the three colors and I used a cream base. Thought it was too muted so went with the white but now with the added flower die cuts I kind of like it better. Mounted all on a mini slimline white cs base and added the Silhouette generated sentiments. A quickie glue pen and glitter on a few flowers and this one is complete.
