Hello & Happy Tuesday Yet Again!!!
Normally, I don't post twice in one day...
But... I wanted to participate in the
I've wanted to in the past... but something always came
up... Soooo, today I made sure to find some time to join!
Today's Lesson was about Remarkable Resist -
Where you heat Emboss & then watercolor
over the embossed design - This is a favorite
technique of mine, so joining in was super FUN!
Here's what I created for today's Camp session --
Now... at first I was unhappy with my embossing... WHY? Well... it's because
I chose to use a Brand new Stamp which hadn't been conditioned first! UGH!
Sooo... when I stamped the Bold Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp
(twice) by the way... and then embossed it... it was not a perfectly clear stamped
image... So I was like (oh Crap!) AND, I forgot to use my Static Powdered
tool which I normally use!! (I guess I was so Excited to play along for
a change.. that I forgot everything!) hahahaha
Any who.... after I decided to leave it AS IS... I picked some
Distress Oxides to use for my water coloring - Broken China, Faded Jeans,
& Wilted Violet - Instead of using just plain old water... I decided to use my
Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz Spray..... And I gotta say...
I'm lovin' the Sparkle!!! I dabbed my WC Cardstock in the inks
several times... using the dry it... then add another layer type method...
I found I was HAPPY with the results.. even with the background
like it was... 😃
I then decided, I wanted to make this a Birthday Card
for another Teacher at school, so I picked a CUTE Elephant to color
from the Adorable Elephants Stamp set using my Spectrum Noir Markers...
It was super quick & easy to color along with those tiny butterflies...
I had the SMILE word die cut out already & sitting on my desk
So I added some Clear wink of Stella to it, just to add more Sparkle
You can NEVER have enough Sparkle!! LOL
then I used the Long Banner Die with computer generated Sentiment
to place underneath the Smile word...
All the little sequins, gems, glitter drops were the final touches...
I think one of the Teachers at school with enjoy this sweet
