Hi Everyone. Well, I'm coming to the end of a very packed week of teaching here at Pinnacles. This week we have been covering colouring with Copic and Pro Marker pens. I know a lot of you out there have them and get so much enjoyment from them as this technique is just so darn therapeutic!I have churned out many samples for the lesson, but have to admit I also had an alteria motive in one of the samples, as I have a friends Birthday Tomorrow, so in fact one of the sample is her card.
So here we go with a step by step..Firstly, I stamped my image using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.Coloured it in using Copic pens, glazed with Glossy Accents and the added Crystal Stickles to the bubbles..I then embossed a piece of thick acetate using the Retro Circles Embossing Folder from one of Sir Tim's (Tim Holtz) Embossing Folder sets.I then went round some of the embossed images with Crystal Stickles, with the intention of using this as a soapy/bubbles background to the stamped image.Whilst this was drying I made my stepper card, instructions on how to make it are here if you need them.Once dry, I applied my embossed piece of acetate to the largest panel of the stepper card using White Eyeletsand then added the image using foam pads.I stamped the sentiment (which also comes with in the same set as the main image) using Black StazOn onto some pink card stockand cut it out with Labels Four Nestabilitie and applied it to the project.
Now, my friend is a real Butterfly freak! So the card had to have some somewhere, even if it didn't really tie in with the theme of the project.I punched a few Butterflies out using the Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly Punch from some lighter Pink card stock, attached them to the project adding a few Pink gems for decoration.And there you have it!
