Sneak Peek Saturday

Hi Bloggers.

I'm at Domino Crafts in Wolverhampton today demoing at their new shop. It would be lovely if you could pop by if you're in the area.

Today I have the first sneak peek from from the Woodware One Day Special that I'm launching on Hochanda on Tuesday evening at 8pm.

For the background, I dusted a piece of Black Card with an Anti-Static Bag. I inked up the Puerto Rico Blocks Mask with Clear Perfect Medium. I popped it inked side up on the platform of my Platinum Machine, popped the card dusted side down onto the mask and ran it through with the emboss sandwich. The ink transferred to the deboss pattern. I added new CS Pharoh Gold Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set using a Low Speed Heat Tool. I trimmed the background down, matted onto Antique Gold Pearl Card and onto a Black Card blank.

I dusted a piece of Antique Gold Pearl Card with an Anti-Static Bag and stamped the dress from the Woodware Little Black Dress Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium. I embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I cut the dress out using scissors. I then ran it through the Platimum Machine with the Boomerang Mask using the emboss sandwich. I coloured in the belt on the dress with a Clear Perfect Medium Pen. I added CS Pharoh Gold Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set.

I stamped the dress and stand again onto Coconut White Card using Black Versafine Ink. I coloured in using Antique Linen Distress Crayon - I popped some onto my Craft Sheet and picked it up using a Water Brush. I cut it out and glued the dress on top.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on to Antique Gold Pearl Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares Set B.

I completed my card by adding 3 x 5mm Black Pearls in the top right-hand corner.
