Over at the PaperArtsy blog the guest designer has been sharing more techniques, this time using sand paper and pastels. You can find the full instructions here. I used Artbars as I don't have the portfolio pastels. I used green(A18), turquoise (A15) and cyan (A13).
This is a close up after having used the sand paper, but I only had 1 grade which was fine, probably could of done with a bit more ruffage!!! Don't even know if you can see it very well.
I used the stencil bump technique on the background, stamped some script from the PA Ink and the dog background #2 plate and used the main images off the LP collection 005 plate. The crunchy waxed kraft paper has been coated in treasure gold, aquamarine, sapphire, olive bronze and a bit of onyxite thrown in too and attached with T!m's tiny attacher. Fibres added to finish.
