So, Born to Shop... what a bargain that was for the Compendium! I can't quite believe the price, and there were some boooooootiful things on sale too! I mean, glitterations????!!!! How can you live without them?
I managed to take a few photographs of the cards that I demo'd and also took with me... so here are a few of them.
This was one of my quick demos... and for this I combined the Bubbles range of papers and stickers with the lovely glitterations.. and no.. I didn't joke about not being able to add up.. honestly, I'm hopeless at Maths.. and spelling!! lol.
This was a sample I made from the Go Green pack of decoupage. I really love the combination of colours in this pack.. lime green is very 'in' at the moment, and combined with the softer hues of blue and green, it looks really classy.
Unfortunately, I never did get time to show how to use the embossing folder as a stamp, but this card has been worked very slightly differently.
What you need to do is emboss the image as you usually would, onto plain card, then I've just taken a black pencil and rubbed very lightly over the top of the embossing to give it an edge.
You can then colour the image in as you usually would - for this one, I used watercolour pencils.
I did the same with this image too. Now because the images are quite large, I've kept the backgrounds quite simple, and just matted and layered them onto white card.
I hope you like the selection today. I'll be back tomorrow with a few more to share.
See you there!!
