In the Studio with Susan and Christine
Hi everyone. Spent yesterday in my studio with two wonderful, crafty friends ... Susan and Christine. We met through Splitcoaststampers, which is an amazing community of wonderful crafters. We meet up about once a month or so, to have a play day. :) Yesterday we experimented with different types of watercolour mediums and papers. It was a lot of fun!!
Christine brought the above embossed image (gloss gel paste through a stencil on top of coated card stock), and her bister powders. We sprinkled the bister on top of the stenciling and spritzed with lots of water. I got a little carried away (as I usually do) and added way more crystals than I needed so it turned out fairly dark. I thought this would make a great masculine card and I am always in need of those. I simply added a small strip of heated copper at the bottom and stamped a sentiment. Easy card to make since I already had the main panel done from yesterday.
We usually have a fourth friend join us, but Shirl was not feeling well. We missed you Shirl!!
I'll be back over the next while sharing more of our experiments. Thanks for stopping by and visiting.
