You know how we love our Try Day Friday series! Each Friday afternoon on our Facebook page, our concept designer Shannon Smith shares a new technique with you LIVE. Isn’t that so fun? This week Creative Director Kim Kesti stepped in and tried out a new technique and used our Liquid Colors for a new to her technique – we think you’ll love it! You can see the video right here. Make sure you leave Kim a comment and let her know how much you enjoyed her lovely card and all of the fun she had trying something new.
Isn’t this beautiful? It really feels like summer — all of the best parts! [Because we all know sometimes the idea of summer is better than the actual season — sometimes it can be *too* hot, right?!] Not only that, it’s very fun to send AND to create. Let’s take a quick look at how the card came together.
A Whip Cream cardstock panel is the base of the card and will there be a lot of building on top of it! Liquid colors placed on either Clear View Sheets or Clear Blocks will help you add color to your Dowel Dauber. [Tip: Practice the circular motions off of the panel first so that the color is more diluted and softer on your panel.]
We’ll take all of the Liquid Colors [Bubble Gum, Limeade Splash, Peaches and Cream, Banana Cream, and Watermelon Fusion] and add circular bits all over the panel. The colors should blend together seamlessly and appear quite smooth when you are finished.
Once you have the stamping, you can add the Journey White Embossing Powder and then heat it all to the smooth raised texture we all love. At that point, it’s all about assembling and layering all of the pieces together. So exciting!
