is one of the challenges at the Hero Arts Blog this month. Here is the announcement with the other choices. I decided to combine some of the things I've learned from Jennifer McGuire's Thinking Inking classes at 2 Peas and here is my submission:
The techniques I used on this card are: stamping a background using an acrylic block, watercoloring with distress inks, and the emboss-resist technique. Also, after reading Julie Ebersole's blog entry today, I glittered the little church scene entirely by running it through a Xyron machine face-up so that it was sticky all over, then dunked it in glitter.......reminds me of the glittered cardboard villages around Christmas trees I remember when I was little. It really has a lovely twinkle irl, between the little glittered panel and the gemstones.
If you'd like a more detailed explanation, see this card on my Flickr photostream.
