The colours below are this weeks colours for CASC&S #356
We are experiencing some wonderful rain, lots of it and while the temperature has doped to the high 20s the humidity is sitting between 80 and 90 most days so very sticky. I have discovered that when heat embossing you really need to turn your ceiling fan down or off. I think I may have ingested some of it, hope it isn't poisonous.
Second blunder - while putting the sequins on I dropped one that was already glued up and got glue everywhere, in an effort to remove the glue I marked the gloss paper, consequently the strange configuration of sequins is hiding a blunder.
OK so what else did I do...I did the alcohol background first and using the topper under a zip lock bag is brilliant, I didn't want to cover the whole of the topper and this gave me perfect control.
You can find the details of the technique here; https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/r...arkermarbling/
I matched the copic markers up with the colours and then for the two greetings I used the Stampin Up markers and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I cut out the Paris die from glitter paper and stuck it on and then lastly added the sequins..sort of wishing I hadn't decided to do that but you win some and then you don't lol
Last but not least I popped some Platinum Pearls Liquid Pearls into the centre of each sequin.
Thanks for looking and have a great week crafting.
I had done a practice run of the Alcohol Marker technique so was able to cut a strip to create a border.
