Hi all! This time I tried an experiment – using watercolor on modelling paste. 🙂 And a secret ingredient to bring out some glitter and shine on my card!
Its been quite some time since I did some shopping for craft supplies. Me new stash, consists of some products which have been out for some time – but I was always dilly-dallying about whether to purchase them or not..and I finally did! 🙂
One of these products is Time Holtz Layered Stencil Rays. I used this with the modelling paste to get some sunshine on my card stock. After letting it dry completely, I started watercoloring it using some basic shades of red, orange and yellow. Since a lot of water was used, the surface warped a lot, but I let it dry as is. Once dry, I adhered it to some black paper, which stuck a little off the sides, and adhered this whole piece on the card base.
I drew and fuzzy cut some thick cardstock in bird shapes. added glue in a thin layer and added some black distress glitter and let it dry. In the meantime, I added the secret ingredient – nail polish! Yes, I added some really fluid silver glitter nail polish on the embossed areas of the sunshine, to add…well, shine! 😉 And after the birds were dry, I curved the wings a little and adhered the birds on the card base.
I am submitting this card to the Muse Challenge
Thanks for looking!
