Faux Ceramics technique

Image
Hi everyone, I thought I would share this card and this very easy technique with you today.  I just love the look of shiny ceramics, so I decided to turn my paper moulds into them, well they look very much like ceramic pieces but without the weight!



Look how shiny they are!!

I used Fimo light air modelling clay, you can use any air dry paper clay you have in your stash. The silicone moulds I used are from Martha Stewart, they are just gorgeous, this set has a quilted heart and a larger flower in it as well. I also used Copic markers to colour them.



Step 1. First I pressed the paper clay into the mould and let them dry completely.


Step 2. Once they're dry colour them with your Copic markers, please be aware that this step may damage your markers as they may be contaminated by the paper clay, just keep checking them. I have a set of markers set aside that I use for rough stuff and also have replacements nibs on hand.

Step 3. Shade them as normally, they will still blend together nicely, i…

Imagine Crafts irRESISTable Pico Embellishers

Hi there, today I'm sharing a card I created using Imagine Crafts irRESISTable Pico Embellishers, I love working with these inks, they're vibrant, translucent and add great dimension to your cards. They have a fine nozzle which is great for writing or colouring small areas, it has an inbuilt anti-clog system and they can be mixed with water! 


 1. Stamp your image on acetate using StazOn jet black ink. 



2. Apply an amount of irRESISTible Pico Embellisher Love Letter to the reversed side of your stamped image and spread it out using your finger tip.


3. Let the first coat dry then add more ink and repeat for deeper colour and to fill in any patchy/uncovered areas.

4. The Pico Embellishers have a fine tip applicator that's perfect for filling in small areas. Cover the whole top bud section  with the Dandelion ink, if you have any bubbles just pop them  with the nozzle or a pin.

5. Dab down the stem with the Bamboo Leaves ink and let dry.

6. One your ink has dried cut around it leave a…
