Every Adventure

Hi, how are you? It’s a cold Sunday afternoon here in the North West so I decided to do a post featuring one of my Rare Earth samples from last week’s shows.

This image was taken using a flash which shows the blue panel well but the rest is a bit on the bright side, so the second image is without and that helps to show the embellies a bit better.

The blue panel is a piece of acrylic sheet ( which I prefer rather than acetate ). Here’s how I made it:
1.Drizzle Diamond Glaze over the back of the panel.
2. Add a few drops of your choice of 3 colours of dye inks and gently stipple them into the glaze, being careful not to over mix which will result in a muddy finish.
3. Sprinkle in some crystal glitter.
4. Scrunch up a piece of white tissue paper and lay down onto the glaze mixture. Press all the creases into the mix until saturated.
Leave to dry.
Once dry, stamp your sentiment using Rare Earth Pitch Black permanent dye ink. Allow to dry also. 
Cut a piece of white card slightly wider and quite a bit longer than your inked panel. Punch the bottom edge with a decorative border punch. Wrap two lengths of ribbon around the bottom border and add button detail. The ribbon I used here is a fascinating Maya Road rubber ribbon with gorgeous little arrow icons printed on it – it’s so cool! Now mount this onto some gorgeous water printed paper, or something nice and bright blue and then onto a 7×7 white card.
Here’s a close up detail where you can see the lovely sparkly glittery bits.
