Here's another Cardmaking Contest entry from Bernice Thompson, a fairly new cardmaker. She took a technique she learned from one of the Mad Stampers Club projects, and has been experimenting with it on her own.
She apologizes that the pinwheel got smooshed and the rhinestone displaced when she scanned the card. Also, the colors don't turn out very true when scanned. She didn't have a way to take a photo, but wanted to get an entry in the contest. Here it is:
- Card Stock: Very Vanilla (card front); Rich Razzleberry (card base)
- Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party Refill (mixed with alcohol and Shimmer Paint)
- Stamps: Wishes Your Way
- Accessories: Big Shot, Pinwheel Die, 3/16" Corner Punch, Tea Lace Doily, Blue Rhinestone, Sponge, SNAIL, Glue Dots.
- Round corners of Rich Razzleberry card base and Very Vanilla card front with Corner Punch.
- Spray ink mixture on card front and center of doily, let dry.
- Sponge edge of doily with Rich Razzleberry ink.
- Cut one pinwheel from scrap of Very Vanilla card stock. Spray with ink mixture and sponge with Rich Razzleberry ink.
- Stamp sentiment on card front with Rich Razzleberry ink.
- Attach card front to base with SNAIL.
- Attach doily to card front with SNAIL.
- Fold pinwheel, using Glue Dots to hold each fold, and to attach rhinestone.
- Attach to doily with Glue Dots.
Be sure to leave a comment for all the contest entries. Although I'll choose my favorite for the $50 prize, I will take all your comments into account when I'm making the decision.
For more information on making and using spritzes, here's a video for you. You'll love the effects you can get from them; you'll also learn how to make those pesky Smooch Spritzes work without clogging the nozzle.
Now get off the computer and go make a card for the contest. Contest information and rules can be found in the post "Want and Extra $50 in Your Pocket?" You still have 5 more days to send me your Stamping Madly Cardmaking Contest Entry.
