Hello Everyone, Jennie here with you today and welcome to the first of my projects for this month. I am back making another page in my Big Ticket book and had great fun experimenting with the wonderful new Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron Distress Inks.
I started my background by first stamping that wonderful Dream stamp (one of my all time favourites) with Versamark and embossing with white embossing powder. I used the Wrinkle Free Distress technique to get the ink on the cardstock (the Tim Holtz video for this technique can be found HERE). I used Mermaid Lagoon, Twisted Citron and Blue Sapphire - such a gorgeous mix! I added a little Vintage Photo around the edges and used a small text stamp and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink to add a bit of interest. Finally I added some splatters of Picket Fence Distress Spray Stain.
Then I assembled all the elements using some foam pads to create a bit of depth.
And the cog fitted perfectly under the flashcard! nobody will even know it was a fluffed cut!
And so another page for my book! I do find that the size of this ticket die at 51/4" x 31/2" is just perfect for experimenting. Not too small but large enough not to feel daunted by it. I will certainly be back with some more experiments!
Thank you for joining me today. Have fun.
