This week Gail is hosting our Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge. I'm sharing one of the cards I made at a class I attended at Taylored Expressions Stamp Joy 2017. Actually, in the coming days you will see more of the wonderful cards I made at the event. It was a day and a half of fun filled creating.
This card is from the Fall Shine class that was taught by Lori Craig of Imagination International. The flowers and feathers were painted rather than inked. While all but one feather was done for us, we were able to play with the Turquoise Chalk Color and the Timbrillo Paste. We mixed the Timbrillo Paste into the Turqouise Chalk Color and applied it to card stock and let it dry. That didn't take long at all. Then, we cut out the feather. The next step was to sand that feather which allowed the sparkle of the Timbrillo Paste to shine through. I do hope you can see it in the photo as it gives the most pretty glitter to the feathers and flowers. It was a fantastic class!
Stamp Set: Unknown - sentiment; Ink: Chocolate Truffle; Cardstock: Peapod, Sugar Cube, Toffee; Dies: Bloomin' Accessories, Bloomin' Stacklets 1, Bloomin' Stacklets 2, Designer Mini Tags, Fine Feathers, Wreath Cutting Plate; Other: Linen Thread, Subway Tiles Embossing Folder; Tommy Art: Indian Orange Chalk Color, Plum Chalk Color, Sunflower Chalk Color, Turquoise Chalk Color, Timbrillo Paste
Here is a close up view of the flowers and feathers. Hopefully, it will show some of the sparkle from the Timbrillo Paste that was mixed with the Chalk Colors.
