29 Days of Christmas Inspiration #25

RW Dec 13 Card 7 (1)

At first glance this card looks very similar to yesterdays but techniques used are quite different.

– Start the same way as yesterday by stencilling stars using modelling paste.  But make them more uniform in coverage.  Allow to dry.

RW Dec 13 Card 7 (2)

– Paint with Silks acrylic glaze in Sky Blue, Majestic Blue & Mediterranean Blue. Make the colour a little patchy looking.

– Apply metallic Pan Pastels all over the stars using one or two of the metallic colours.  I used a little silver and gold.

– Spritz the Pan Pastels with Spectra Fix Degas Pastel Fixative and allow to dry.

– Drizzle along the top edge with turquoise acrylic ink and spritz with water, the ink will run & mix with the Pan Pastel colour and Dylusions layer to create a lovely shimmery effect. Allow to dry.

– Add a greeting and it is done.
