Woohoo!!!! I love techniques, how about you? In today’s card I will teach you four different techniques. I’m so excited to be using the Silhouette Scenes set again today. If you missed my previous post, catch it here.
Oh my goodness, I’ve got so much to share with you. Let’s tackle that gorgeous background first. You’ll need some of our Shimmery White CS. Psst, I love that paper and use it all the time. Because it holds up to water, it’s fabulous for techniques of all kinds. On this one, I created a wash with Night of Navy and Balmy Blue inks. Loving, the purple hue that came from the Night of Navy as it dried.
Next up, that gorgeous “inspire” sentiment. Did you know we have two new embossing powders? One of which, the Shimmer Black is what I used to create my own custom paper. That way I could cut the word with the die and achieve all that shimmery goodness. With the scraps, I punched the cute little stars with the Twinkle Builder punch. Tada!!!!
My night sky needed some twinkling stars. By flicking on droplets of our Frost White Shimmer Paint I achieved the look I was after. Hard to photograph, but believe me, it’s a fantastic look.
The sentiments in this set are great for all occasions. This time I wanted to highlight the words even more. So, I gave my stitched rectangle a little wash as well. I really love the look. Be sure to take a moment to view my FREE video tutorial to see the techniques up close.
