I thought I would share with you today a card I have made specially for my demo at the new Crafters Companion Flagship store in Newton Ayecliffe on Saturday. I cant wait to see the new shop and have a look around at what they have on offer. The store stocks loads of Creative Expressions products and that is what I will be demoing ( as well as this card)
This card uses some of my favourites form the new die range as well as my fave stamp set the nasturtium elements clear set.
I stared by drawing round the inside of the number 3 die in the double pierced circles with a pencil onto bright white foundation card. I then stamped the large nasturtium element from the set twice around this circle in opposite corners using perfect medium. I heat embossed the stamped design with Cosmic Shimmer brilliant sparked embossing powder in black mirage. Next I coloured the flowers using pixie powders taking Julia Watts technique of adding water to a small amount of powder in a palette and using a water brush to pick up and paint. one these had dried I mixed some of the white pearl pixie powder in the same way and used this to add highlights to the flowers.
I then used the number 4 deign the set and cut a smaller circle from cobalt foundation card. I cut the original circle with the double pierced squires set and foam mounted this over the cobalt cutting around the edge to give a neat blue border around the square.
Finally I added a sentiment form my larkspur everyday sentiment set stamped in cobalt archival ink and added a border of the cobalt cut with one of the centres form the Swiss die range.
a few layers of cobalt and white and finished.
If you are around the Crafters Companion store on Saturday I will be demoing between 10am and 4pm it would be great to see some familiar faces there!
