I'm up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog today with this April Showers Card that just screams Spring!! I LOVE this Sentiment and I wanted to make it the focal along with creating a BEAUTIFUL Plaid that's FULL of personality all on its own!! So lets get started with the Process!!
I Started with the NND Argyle Stencil Set layer #1 and I Sprayed the back of it with some Therm O Web Pixie Spray!! I then adhered it to my Card Panel and used some Purple Tape for some extra stability!! I then used and Inking Tool and Inked up the Design using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink!!
Next I used the Plaid Stencil Set placing the Stencil #1 over the Card Panel and Inking with a combination of both Tattered Rose and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Inks!!
Then I placed the #2 Plaid Stencil over the Card Panel and Inked with Milled Lavender Distress Oxide Ink!!
I then placed the #2 Argyle Stencil over the Card Panel and used the Therm O Web Metalix Gel in White Pearl along with a Stencil Pal!! I LOVE the Pearlescent shine of this Gel!!
While the Gel was still wet, I sprinkled on some of the Chunky Lawn Fawn Glitter and then set it aside to Dry completely!! Once it was Dry I took a Large Brush and brushed away all of the extra Glitter and put it back into the Jar!! I think the Sparkle of the Glitter really adds to the over all design!!
I Stamped and Embossed the April Showers Stamp Set with Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and WoW Neutral Shimmer Glitter Embossing Powder!! I LOVE the way that the two Iridescent Glitters tie into one another!! SWOON!! That Sparkle just makes me HAPPY!! Then I added the Framework Frame that I Die Cut from some Lawn Fawn Plaid Patterned Paper!! The Colors a PERFECT match and the Smaller Scale Plaid works well with the Larger Scaled Plaid!! Then I used the little garland of flowers from the Woodland Spring Stamp Set, coloring the image twice and using the coordinating Woodland Spring Die Set to cut them out and placed one on top and one on bottom of the framed image. The PERFECT embellishment to finish off the Design!!
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
