Do a double take for Creative Expressions DT
Well this month over at Creative expressions we have been playing with antique dressforms plate and also some of their singles range from which the bags below come. These singles range come pre cut and pre mounted ...so are ready to go! I decided to play around with texture paste and gilding wax to make two cards that are the same but different!
So here is card no 1 : using singles stamp ..bijou bag
When dry the rest of the background was coloured using frayed burlap distress ink. For the bag itself I stamped the image using frayed burlap distress ink and then clear embossing. I water coloured the bag using water brush and distress markers in antique linen and frayed burlap.
For detail I added some polished silk glitter in sahara. I also stamped the sentiment from the set and added some cheesecloth and a paper rose dabbed with distress paint .
For card no 2 : I created another background , still using paste but through some old sequin waste , and when dry coloured with frayed burlap Distress Ink. I also highlighted the raised areas with enchanted gold gilding wax.
The paler areas are where I flicked some water and blotted off some of the ink...it is so much fun to play creating backgrounds..
For the bag ( rose blossom ) I stamped in frayed burlap and clear embossed and then painted the main body of the bag using the gilding wax. I did this by scooping a little into a palette and adding a couple of drops of blending solution... you may choose to have some ventilation...and then mixing into a paint. I have kept a dedicated brush too.
The edges of the bag were coloured using distress markers and I added some dots of gold pearl pva for the clasp.
Another sentiment, some cheesecloth and a flower and a little flourish stamp and there you have it , 2 stamps, 2 cards... the same but different!?
thanks for stopping by it means a lot ...see you next week when I have been playing with the antique dressforms plate x
