DWDGP: Gold Embossing Paste

Directions:
1. Tape the Honey Queen Stencil to a piece of Stampendous' Mixed Media White Paper.

2. Add tape to the body of the bee, so that only the wings are exposed.

3. Using Pearlescent embossing Paste and the Palette Knife, spread the paste across the wings, remove and wash stencil, and let dry.

4. Replace the stencil back on to the wings and tape off the head so that only the crown is exposed. You don't really need to tape off the body and the wings for this.

5. Using Gold Embossing Paste and the Palette Knife, paste the crown, remove and wash stencil, and let dry.

6. Replace the stencil on the pasted image and tape off the wings and the crown.

7. Apply Dandelion Memento Ink to the head and every other stripe. Use the Picasso Shield to help block out the correct areas.

8. Apply Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the opposing stripes and the eyes, again utilizing tape and the Picasso Shield.

9. Trim the Honey Queen out.

10. On watercolor paper, tape down the Honeycomb Stencil and spray with Lemon Zest Dylusions spray.

11. Cut the piece down to 5 1/4" x 3 3/4."

12. Stick the Honeycomb Perfectly Clear stamp on to a Handle, ink with VersaFine ink and stamp on top of the yellow Honeycomb background.

13. Stamp the sentiment with VersaFine ink on to the background piece.

14. Ink the edges of the background with Golden Glitz Delicata ink.

15. Create the card base with Yellow Corn cardstock and cut to the size of 5 1/2" x 8."

16. Ink the edges of the card base with White Shimmer Delicata ink.

17. Glue the background to the base with Zip Dry Glue.

18. Glue the Honey Queen to the background with Pop Dots.

April Sparkle Blends Release Hop

Hello! Welcome back! And if you're new here, my name is Alison, and I appreciate you visiting me. Today is a big day, because Doodles Paper Playground is having their April Sparkle Blends Release Hop. This month, 6 brand new Sparkle Blends have come out to join the party, and the Doodles Paper Playground Divas are joined by several very special Guest Designers. So sit back and enjoy all of the wonderful projects we have to share with you. There are prizes to be won along the way too!
My card today features the beautiful new "Diamond" Sparkle Blend which is filled with lovely clear, opalescent clear, and moonshine sequins. There are different sizes, shapes, and styles in the Blend, so even thought it is all technically "clear," it is full of interest. This mix is perfect for the style of shaker I did today, which has a colored focal image in the background. The clear sequins sparkles, but doesn't hide the background. It just adds some magic. I used, what ver…

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 "thank…
