Hey cardmaking friends, welcome back. Today I have a Picket Fence Studios Dandelion Delight and Shimmer Powder card to share with you and the Embossed Resist Technique which is a fast and fun way to create fabulous backgrounds on your cards.
Shimmer Powders are from Tonic Studios and come in a dozen beautiful colors. For today’s card I used the Falling Leaves and Blue Blitz.
Dig around in your stash, you may even have some Brusho that was hugely popular a few years back. If you do, the Turquoise, Russian Blue and Leaf Green will give you the same effect as the card I’m sharing today.
Tips to create the Picket Fence Studios Dandelion Delight and Shimmer Powder Card
Cut a piece of watercolor paper larger than the 4-1/2 x 6-1/2 finished piece needed.
Place the watercolor paper into the Misti and stamp the two Dandelion Delight stamps with the VersaMark Ink Pad
Cover the stamped image with White Embossing Powder, shake off the excess and heat set.
Tape the art piece down to a core board (stiff board used for watercoloring to keep wet paper flat).
Lay the art piece onto the Waffle Flowers Water Media Mat to help protect your work surface.
Spritz the surface of the art piece and then lightly sprinkle the Falling Leaves and Blue Blitz Shimmer Powders
Use a wet paint brush to move the color around, and/or pick up the hard board and move the color around.
Add more water and shimmer powder as required.
Finishing the card:
Once dry, cut the art piece down to 4-1/2 x 6-1/2
Mount it to a 4 – 5/8 x 6-5/8 mat in Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue
Attach to a top folding white card base finished size 5 x 7
Stamp the sentiment front the stamp set in black onto a scrap of white and cut it out.
Attach it to the card front in the bottom right corner with Foam Squares
Embellishing the card
Picket Fence studios Oceans of Green Gem Mix is the perfect color embellishment.
Add a sprinkle of them across the top of the piece in between the seed pods.
New Product that I LOVE:
I’m a collector of sequins and gems from Picket Fence Studios and they have this fabulous Sequin storage display case that I love because it fits into my drawer and I can easily pull it out when it’s time to embellish. It keeps all my sequins and gems organized and my work surface neat and tidy. (full disclosure, I have two of them, haha).
