Texture and Shine


Hello! This month, the Imagine team was challenged to make projects that included white, and/or Shimmer & Sparkle, so for this card I decided to go with both. Here's how to make it.

Supplies:
Imagine:
Delicata Inkpads and Refills: Golden Glitz, Shimmery Silver
Craft Mat
Ink Potion No. 9
StazOn: Jet Black
Amplify!: White
irRESISTable: Pico Embellisher in Tuxedo Black & Wedding Dress
Palette Knife

Other:
Spellbinders: Seth Apter Embossing Fold'er Gridiron
Black and White cardstock
Recollections: Brayer
Stencil Girl: Urban Insiders Start Stencil
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry Glue

Directions:

1. Using the Golden Glitz and Shimmery Silver refill inks, squirt some of each on to your Craft Mat.

2. Sprtiz with Ink Potion No. 9 to help keep the inks wet, and to get them to move easier.

3. Using a brayer, roll and blend the colors together, covering the roller. Do not over mix the colors.

4. Roll the brayer over smooth black cardstock. I used a scrap piece that already had a wave cut into the bottom. I went in all different directions. I didn't cover the entire piece of cardstock. I wanted to leave some of the black showing.

5. Once the ink is dry, run the piece of cardstock through a die cut/embossing machine while sandwiched between an embossing folder.
6. Gently rub Jet Black StazOn across the raised areas. Again, don't got for full coverage. Trim the piece down to approximately 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" 

7. Tape down a stencil on to a textured black cardstock circle. Mine is approximately 2 1/2" wide. Squirt Amplify! in White on the stencil, and spread with a palette knife.

8. Heat the Apmlify! with a heat tool. You can see mine in the corner in the photo above. The Amplify! will start to puff when it's dry, which you can see on the right side of the photo.

9. Ink the edges of the circle with Golden Glitz from the inkpad, and then Shimmery Silver.

10. Adhere the parts to a 10" x 6 1/2" white card base.

11. Draw some partial circles with Tuxedo Black irRESISTables Pico Embellisher around the black circle.

11. Add some additional white dots using Wedding Dress irRESISTables Pico embellisher.

The card is complete!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
