I'm shamefully late in posting a proper thank you to my friend Anna DaGenerous (whom you may know as lovely Annapurna.) I made a random comment about needing H2Os and she surprised me with these. How ultra sweet is she, hey? That's how she got her nickname! ;O) I made this card ages ago with 'em, but haven't had time to post it*
These paints were so much fun to use. I was floored by the shimmer you can get. I like using them to paint a wash around the image too (you get a shininess on the white parts too) :O)
I had to use my new stamp from Paper Garden Projects with 'em. (I have loved this stamp for SO long and finally got it 'cause Cathy ordered it for the store. It's called Damask & you can find it here if you'd like one.) I lurve that it's acrylic and you can arrange it how you like or just use a piece of it. I first saw Irene (of Scrapperlicious) use it (man I am astounded by her talent; you can see the magic she works with it here.)
- mounted the patterned paper (Basic Grey's Aged & Confused Vagabond VAG149) onto black cardstock to make it sturdy for sewing)
- pierced holes where the grid meets
- Stitched from the back & stuck it on the card
The sentiment is from Fancy Pants In the Garden & it's stuck into Hodge Podge hardware and then filled with Crystal Lacquer to make it look heavily lacquered and then I stuck some dollar store gems on there, BUT apparently I didn't stick them on well enough... Gasp! Look away! Cover your eyes! It's a missing gem, LOL. (It wasn't me; I didn't do it. Nobody can prove anything! Oh wait, you have photographic evidence, heehee.) I'm slippin.
May all your gems be ultra sticky! lol :O)
*Do you ever feel like a (really out of shape) hamster spinnin' around in a wheel? LOL.
