Night 6 over at PA is the turn of the Ellen Vargo range of stamps. You can see the 3 lovely projects made with them here. I decided to base my huge tag on the 3rd project by Ruth.
I coloured the background with portfolio pastels and blended them in. Stamped the scratchy EV pod and circle shapes randomly in snowflake fresco paint. Added PA Mini script with a swipe of black stazon.
I mixed some pearl with the snowflake to give a bit of a metallic sheen and used the square dots (does that make sense??) EV stamp with this as above, you can just see the glimmer.
I chose one of the Artistcellar stencils from the pods collection that I won a while ago. I stencilled in white snowflake.

And finally I used the 12 x 12 Prima bubbles stencil to do the bumping with the snowflake and a colour.
As I can't do shading, I wanted to add white pencil, but when I tried it just scraped the coloured paint off.
So I took my black smudgy pencil instead which actually says 'soft' on it, and added a bit of what I call shading!!
This was great fun and incorporated loads of techniques - thanks Ruth
