Showcase Monday - Hi

Good Morning!

I have a card to share today using paper by Prima and a new Tim Holtz Die!

I coloured the flowers in using my Copics, used pop dots to pop the bird up and the Hi was cut out from one of the Prima papers! All the edges were distressed with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Sizzix - Tim Holtz Die
Petaloo - Flowers

I hope you are having a great weekend and if you attended Camp Croppin you had a fabulous time! We had some awesome make & takes and demo's taking place at the South Store yesterday and today. One of the demos was using Ranger Perfect Pearls and Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals. The following card was made with the magicals.

To create this card, you stamp the flower image with versamark onto smooth black cardstock. Heat emboss the image with embossing powder. Using a paint palette, mix water and magicals to create a liquid and using a broad paintbrush, mix the magicals and water and paint the flower. Keep the mixture thick and overlap the colours so that they float together. Once dry, cut out the image!

Look at the pretty shimmer!

I embossed the card with Swiss Dots embossing folder in my cuttlebug and stamped the sentiment with Staz On ink.

Thanks for stopping by - enjoy your day!
