Sheena Douglass Sketchy Autumn leaf stamp with Radiant Rain shimmering mist and daubers

HI there  people
just got the go ahead to share my DT samples
you will now see why i got messy !!!…the parcel arrived with the goodies in
we were each given sprays / daubers stencils and foil kits
i got the pinks/reds. blues/purples  colours
so i can hear you thinking OK! but there is yellow in this ?
yep your not wrong !
Sheena said just play and have fun  oh….. im telling you… did i have fun  i got down and messy adding my  mustard seed distressing inks into the pot with embossing powders just because i could..
bad idea to tell Linda to play with no safety net lol …. but over the next few days i will hopefully show how versatile these paints are and will fit in with all the other crafting goodies you might have

i started making a backing paper with centrua pearl card from crafters companion
swiping over the coral berry and a touch of teal with my paint brush
spritz with water and let them blend once dry i went in with mustard seed distressing ink added some places, once it was dry i over stamped and heat embossed in gold then with the paints from my mat i dropped in the colours to the leaves  just let them do there own thing.
on heat resistant acetate  i stamped and embossed more leaves then dabbed Spectrum noir in to the leaves in reds and greens  once dry i covered the leaves in glossy accents and glamour dust  crystal glitter  left to dry
you get a stained glass effect very sparkly but picture doesn’t show too well nice bit was i could stick  it to background with Collall 3D gel under the leaves  all matted onto gold mirri card the ribbon is from Joanna Sheen … and the shrink plastic leaves were cut with my sizzix  leaf die and coloured in with  daubers  then shrunk for the dingle dangles
thank you for popping by to visit
hugs linda xxx
