I had the chance to play with the new Decoupage Sheets they are carrying at icopic. I used the set called Pirate and Awash. Absolutely perfect when you are in a bind and still want something handmade. It comes with the die cut images all ready for layering and a matching sheet of cardstock.
Here's a few close ups so you can see the layering:
And because these images make me think of Jack Sparrow I had to add some hemp and beads:
And now for the mermaid:
She's only layered up once but here's a close up of that and the bow:
That bow was made with my chalk white seam binding that I dyed with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I just laid a long piece out on some waxed paper and rubbed my ink pads across in random spots, both front and back. I used Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint and Faded Jeans. Then I spritzed it with Copper Glimmer Mist and scrunched it up. I dried it by fluffing slightly under my heat tool, all the while mopping up the excess ink off the wax paper. I love the way this turned out.. like it's been sitting under water getting covered with algae.
And you know I just can't pass up the chance to color so I also made a card using a Sarah Kay image from Stampavie.
Here's a close up:
I love using my BV's for shadows, especially on whites. Here's the copic colors I used:
Now that only leaves the bow with my Divine Twine
and the sentiment from Amy R called Sassy Sentiments.
That's all for now except that I hope to see you over at the challenge this week which is Advanced Shadowing (add a shadow to your image).
