Ang over on Lotstodo is hosting a recipe swap. The ingredients were:
Atc, Postcard and Tag
Colours : Green, Blue and Yellow - any combination
Bling and sparkle
Theme : Floral
After asking to be a maybe due to time restraints and my forthcoming holiday, I was on a roll and did 2 sets!!!
Top Set - Atc covered in texture paste, a flower head stamped into it whilst still wet. Painted with lettuce dabber flowers outlined with stream. Blue stickles added to the centres for the bling. Postcard covered in texture paste and smoothed out although not very well as it is rippled, but it does give a great effect. Coloured with green colorbox chalk inks. Image added, stamping in black stazon, lime green stickles to outline the image. Tag is painted with dabbers. Images stamped in olive green stazon, 3 gems for the bling. Rock candy crackle paste used over the flower heads.
Bottom set - Tag inked in distressed shabby shutters, pine needles, peeled paint. Water thrown on and heat dried to give a watermark look. Image stamped in olive green stazon and some around the edges in cactus green stazon. Crackle paint added to the heads on the main image, glossy accents applied to the stems. Gems added to the other 3 flower heads. Fibres added. Postcard done in the same way but with faded jeans, weathered wood and broken china distress inks. Some of the watermarks have been accented with glossy accents for a raised effect. Image stamped with pine needles and shabby shutters and spritzed before stamping. Gems added to the flourish and faded jeans crackle paint added to the bottom. Atc same background and colours as the tag but instead of throwing water on, it was spritzed and dried. Image stamped in oliver green and hydrangea blue stazon, flourish with gems added. Crackle glaze on the middle of the flower and some of the petals have been glossy accented.
