Good morning all..
Phew, just caught Sheena's first show on Create and Craft! (She's on again at 4 p.m. but what will be left???) However the Magical new stamps are on Crafters Companions site together with the spectrum noirs that I used in this sample.
Today I thought I'd do a quick "how to" on the Spectrum Noir background I used for this card as its one of my favourite techniques:
First choose the Spectrums you want and a refill bottle of blending solution and scribble random blocks of colour
Now - here's the technical bit...
- drop the blending solution onto the scribble until you are happy!
Trim the card and darken the edges with a bit of distress ink (Chipped sapphire or black soot or both together works well!
Finally you might even want to bling it up with a little Luminarte Pourable!! (I used Egyptian Gold)
There you have it ...simples. To complete the card I embossed that gorgeous bird of prey with black embossing powder and used a little more blending solution to lighten the wings together with a little white acrylic paint. The card was finished using some ribbon and a sentiment, the ink well and feather on shrink plastic...
Do hope this was of interest - have a great day xxx
