More Nautical combined with Moonglow Pigment Powders

Had a fab day today playing with the French Country Starburst Stains. Also, played with a new idea I tried a few weeks ago that I will share when I have a photo to show. As I've mentioned before my camera is broken so when Debbie comes back from her holiday I'll ask if she can take one to show you. I'm really grateful for her doing this for me, but I know she enjoys photography and believe me her photos are much better than any I can take!

I have another couple of tag books on the go now, that makes 4 unfinished atm, as 2 other books are work in progress too.

Today's nautical card is slightly different from the others shown but another idea for Father's Day. Sorry the photo isn't very good but I hope you get the idea. It appeared in one of our first Create and Craft TV shows (more from The Stamp Man), must be a good 5 or 6 years ago now, how time flies...

I have embossed the image onto black card then painted inside with Moonglow Pigment Powders mixed with a little water. Once dry it has been sprayed with hairspray to seal. Try not to over spray as if too much is sprayed the pigment powders may run.

For the background, the black card was completely covered with a versamark ink (direct to paper style), by putting the pad to the card. I then dusted dry pigment powder all over with a dry brush to make a matching mount. Spray with hairspray to seal. The pigment powder set used is Milky Way and this technique gives another use for the powders that will coordinate with the other techniques.

Oh dear, time to go, Hamish has opened the poppers on his bed and has his head buried inside the cover and is starting to shake his bed all over the place, time to stop this game, of course it's his favourite game at the moment!

More tomorrow...
