You guys can be sooo persuasive! All these calls of 'Show us' and 'Share' ... and who am I to argue?
After giving the matter some considerable thought I felt it would be totally wrong just to blog every tag I made at Ranger U and tell you the technique ... after all that is someone else's hard work and you guys may want to go to Ranger U yourselves and would n't it be awful if I trashed the surprise! So ... anyways ... I got to thinking about what I did learn and actually one of the things is to re-visit older techniques from time to time ... you know the ones ... the ones that you tried ... once ... way back when and have n't tried again since!
So this is one of those techniques that I had completely forgotten about! But I did it at Ranger U too ... so everyone is happy :0) At least I hope they are :0)
Basically I have embossed with Ranger Clear embossing powder on black card. Plonked my wet brush into the metallic perfect pearls ... one at a time of course ... and mixed them up on my craft sheet to make a fluid paint ... then I randomly painted over the embossed images. A simple resist technique that is great fun! Please don't let my poor piccies put you off ... the finish really is lush in real life!
I have used the Paper Artsy flourish ... THE Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490 stamps and some of Lord Tim of Holtz's Idea-ology! You know Tim ... the man that could play seventy odd sets of tennis on an hourly basis while compiling money saving budgets for the entire UK's civil service with just a blob of Black Enamel Accents and an edge distresser!
I have had a fab day ... playing and teaching a class in Olney ... we made a Christmas screen so we had crackers and Christmas music ... it was tops!
