Week 2 of the challenge over at Haunted Design House and the rest of my fellow minions have been showing some gorgeous makes, Drop Dead Gorgeous that is. I am part of "team B". The team that reminds you to get a move on because you only have another 6 days to get your entry into the challenge. Well - what are you waiting for?
My project? - A fat book page from me - and a good excuse for me to get my Stampotique stamps out of the drawer they reside in.
The mermaids were stamped then coloured with promarkers before fussy cutting out and joining. Then the couple were brushed with rock candy and set aside to dry while I made the base. This gives the slightly scaly look to them.
Some aluminium tape was trimmed to a wavy edge before sticking onto the 4" x 4"card base. Some glimmer mists type spray in green, lilac and midnight silver on the card and alcohol inks on the tape before running through with a crackle embossing folder. Some green flocking on some of the raised crackle to give the impression of seaweed. Some green mesh ribbon and we're ready for our stars. The green "air bubbles" are a mixture of green patina stickles and blue distress stickles - slightly less glitz was wanted.
Your turn - as I said - you have 6 days more to get those "Drop Dead Gorgeous" projects linked into the challenge over at Haunted Design House.
