Happy Birthday

Hey everyone! Well I just took a class last week on using sheer heaven paper and Tim Holtz inks. It was so fun. I made this card using those techniques and Here is how I did it. Angela

3938k Hill flowers
3944h 365 days
3878f simple scroll
Bazzill paper
Sheer Heaven by Cre-8-it!
Tattered Angels glimmer mist deep plum
Tim Holtz Adirondackcolor wash sprays - stream, lettuce, eggplant, cranberry
Versafine black ink pad
versacolor white ink pad
White embosssing powder
Versamark ink padrhinestones
Ranger non stick craft sheet

So first you will need to lay out your craft sheet and put away anything you don't want to get ink on. Cut a piece of sheer heaven down to about 4 x 5 inches. You will spray (keeping the sprayer right up to the craft sheet to prevent overspray) one spritz for each color on the sheet. Keep the colors separated but not too far apart. Maybe not more than one inch. Spritz the color with water. Spray your sheer heaven (on the satin side not the glossy side) with water. Lay your piece over the ink and spread the ink around by rubbing the paper. Before lifting it up heat it a little with your gun. Lift up paper, spritz a little of the glimmer mist over the piece and set aside to dry. You can take chroma coat white paper to soak up the rest of the ink and use in a later project. When your sheet is dry stamp the flowers with white add white embossing powder to the flower heads and emboss. You can take a paint brush and wipe off the embossing powder from the stems before you emboss. Stamp the scroll stamp with versamark on the yellow cardstock. Stamp happy birthday with black. Assemble card and add rhinestones. If you have any questions I will be checking your comments and get back to you asap.
