Pink Star Nebula {Pastel Marbling Revisited}

Saturday, July 19, 2014

A while ago I made a card suing my pastel marbling technique that I just loved.
I decided I wanted to make a girl version!
Here are the direction again in case you missed them:
Steps for creating this marbled pastel background:
1. Fill shallow container with water
2. Use a craft knife to shave desired pastel colors onto water's surface
3. Swirl the colors together to achieve desired effect
4. Place paper onto surface of water and remove
{you can dip it more than once if you did not pick up enough color the first time}
5. Allow to dry and spray with a fixative to avoid smudging
For this card and the boy version I took it one step further. 
 I ran it through my Xyron sticker maker {colored side down}.
I carefully removed the release paper exposing the adhesive
and coated the entire piece in clear glitter.

This Faber Castell Pitt artist pen is perfect for fixing stamped impressions that don't stamp as solidly as you'd like, particularly with Versafine Onyx ink.  It makes it so easy to correct mistakes and is totally undetectable even on large sentiments and images.
I just love it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Have an awesome weekend!

Golden Butterflies

Friday, July 18, 2014

Yesterday I shared a technique I learned from Jennifer:
While experimenting with more than just the suggested pigment inks, I found that Versamark and heat embossing worked beautifully!
Coat one side of the wood veneer piece and place it face down onto the cardstock.
Run it through your die cutting machine.
Again, I'll share my sandwich with you for my Cuttlebug in case you missed it yesterday.
From Bottom to Top
A Plate
2 Tan Mats
Wood Veneer {Ink  Side Down}
C Plate
Sprinkle the versamark with embossing powder and heat.
The wood veneers make quite a deep impression!
I found that I had less paper cracking if I only ran it through once rather than through and then back again. 
This is what the cardstock looks like from the back after running through your machine.

Thanks so much for stopping by again today!
Don't forget to stop by the Friday Inspiration File for this week's beautiful projects!

A Happy {Rainbow} Hello

Thursday, July 17, 2014

Yesterday Jennifer posted a video showing a
I'm not a huge fan of pigment inks, which are necessary for this technique, but I did have one pad that I didn't get rid of. I tried using distress inks and distress paints.  Both worked, but Jennifer's right, pigment works best.

In her video, Jennifer shares her sandwich.
I thought I'd share mine since we use a different machine.
I use a Cuttlebug and my sandwich is as follows:
From Bottom to Top
A Plate
2 Tan Mats
Wood Veneer {Ink  Side Down}
C Plate
Worked like a charm!

I used Inktense pencils to create my rainbow and then used it to create the strip down the side and also to die cut the Hand Lettered Hello.

Create Granite Using WPlus9 Ink Refills

Sunday, July 13, 2014

While in CO, we stayed with my husband's brother and his family.
Even though they had just moved into their new house about a week before and were still unpacking and looking for extra plates, they said, "C'mon out!" We had such a nice time with them; I wanted to make and send a special 'thank you'.
I took over 200 photos in the quick 4 days we were out there!
So much beauty everywhere I couldn't resist one more shot.
I thought a Polaroid was the perfect way to represent that part of the trip.
I created my granite/marble mountains using WPlus9's PURECOLOR Dye Ink Refills and my marbling technique.

Thanks for stopping by!
