Well yesterday was a wash out , I went for another little drive in my car, still trying to get this old foot moving again but my goodness it was torrential rain, hail stones gosh not at all nice. I finally got home and the sun came out for all of a couple of hours and then it rained again. Lets hope for something a little nicer today.
Hope you are well and those of you going away over bank holiday I hope you all have a wonderful time and you will be missed so I look forward to hearing about your adventures.
Today is my day as you all know to post for Visible Image officially, as yesterday was a new launch we did an extra day so here is the card I made for today.
Myrddin Magick set and The forest background The set I got the amazing sword and rocks from is Myrddin and he is a wizard and is amazing but I chose not to add him to this one as I have another idea for him so I thought I'd do this and do something different with the trees, but up close you can see they are fading into the background but it just wouldn't come out on camera, and really just picked up everything I added to the top but I will explain how I made it anyway.
I took the Forest stamp and white card and I also added a mask to the upper left so I could have a moon in the corner.I stamped the forest several times but I used lots of greens and browns in the distress pens and drew directly onto the stamps so it was more subtle, I breathed on the stamp each time just before I stamped it as distress is water based it reactivates the ink, I kept them all very even and ended up with a straight line at the top where it says Magick.
I decided to start added a few grass type strokes above the line to break it up a bit.
I took the mask off the moon and added some dusty concord very lightly in stages moving the mask a little at a time so you can almost see rings as you look at it.
I dried everything thoroughly added more highlights etc til I was really happy with it and dried it a bit more , I rubbed over the top right corner with an anti static bag as I wanted to emboss in white the sentiment form the set and if any distress was wet or even a little damp it would grip the embossing powder too so double check it is completely dry then used versamark to emboss with true white embossing powder. Believe in Magick.
I added a self adhesive sheet to the complete picture but only peeled half the backing off and added a chunky glitter all along the bottom then i took off the top part of the backing and added a slightly smaller but not too fine glitter as it faded up.
I then took some distress pens and coloured over the things i wanted to pull forward in the image, Like the sword, you just dab the pen on the glitter and it kinda sucks it up and darkens the glitter but the gorgeous sparkle remains, yummy.
These are the new stamps part of the new fantasy series by the amazing Visible Image.
What is everyone up to this bank holiday then, anything nice or will you be home crafting along with me?
Have a lovely day.
