Today, I’m using the Simon Says Stamp Daisy Bouquet Stamp and Die set. It was part of the Celebrate You Release
Instructions for the Metallic Daisy Bouquet Card:
Whilst digging around in my bling, to see what I had to play with for the challenge I found my Perfect Pearls! Remember those? I had a pretty pink and green, so whoo hoo.
To start, I gold embossed my stamp onto the Black watercolor paper I chatted about last post here.
Next, I transferred a bit of the pearls into a well and used my Pipette to add a few drops of water
There is a very sophisticated tool in my stash for this, haha….I cut a straw on an angle, and bent it a bit, to create a small scoop. I use this for a variety of different pigments and embossing powders.
Then, once I had the pearls and waters mixed, I used a fine paint brush to add them to my image.
Green Patina and Pink Gumball.
Interesting about the Pink Gumball…it’s pink in the container, but once dry on the watercolor paper, it became Holographic. Turn it one way, it’s purple, turn it another, there are bright pink streaks in it….Very pretty, but again, not so much fun to try and capture in a picture, so just take my word for it ok? haha
Finally, I gold embossing a sentiment before mounting the piece to a gold mat and then a Simon Says Stamp Lavender card base.
Another clean and simple (and flat) card. I seem to be on a roll with them this week haha.
I hope you will dig through your stash to see what kind of bling you can come up with and join in the challenge, you have until Tuesday evening to enter, as Wednesday starts a whole new week.
