Three cards, three techniques, and a whole lot of laughs and good conversation.
On this card, we stamped on several layers of aluminum foil, then used a stylus to dry emboss around the stamped lines.
The next card started with spraying white cardstock with water, then laying down color with water color crayons and an aquapainter. After drying, we stamped with clear ink, covered the image with clear embossing powder, and set it with the heat gun. Then more of the first step. Finally, covering the paper with scrap paper, we ironed until the embossing melted away. We finished with some flourishes. I think it's a nice batik look.
I think this last one is my favorite. Messy, unusual, and so much fun. First we squeezed some floor wax onto a sheet of parchment paper that was folded in half (just on one half), then added several squirts of three reinkers. I chose blues and green. Then we put some white tissue paper on top, closed up the parchment paper and smooshed it until the tissue paper was completely covered with color. Then some sprinkles of mica powder. To speed up drying, we covered the tissue paper with white cardstock and smooshed some more. I love how it looks on the tissue paper, but also the parchment paper and cardstock, and will use those in future projects. The tissue paper was trimmed to size, attached to white cardstock and here is the finished card:
Don't know if you can really appreciate the sparkle from the mica powder, but it is dazzling in person.
