Well today is an exciting day! I begin my journey using the inspirational products from Visible Image. What better way to start than with a bang!-it is the month of fireworks after all!
The project is an A4 canvas and to create the firework effect I used:
The products links are below:
How it was done:
line an A4 canvas with Sheena stamping card. Take the stencils and randomly spray sections of the canvas using coloured ink sprays . I used distress ink sprays.
Next using the dark blue spray darken the top and bottom of the canvas to create a night sky effect. Take the large stamp and stamp the image a few times in a couple of colours on top. To highlight the stencilled shapes go over some areas again using pink and purple distress oxide ink. It’s a good ink for adding light chalky layers.
Then comes the fun bit! When the background is dry cover with an anti static powder and select a range of different colour glitter embossing powders. I used wow powders. Using all the stamps stamp in different colours and sizes with the main area towards the top to create that popping firework effect.
Finally darken around the edges with dark blue and black ink so the centre of the canvas becomes the focal point. Ink a rectangle of card in complimentary colours and heat emboss the sentiment in black glitter powder. I also made this more sparkly using diamond stickles on top.
It was a lot of fun. Have a go. The stamps and stencils were super easy to use!
Till next time..
