More projects from my Pigment Sprinkles class:
Directed Spray Technique: This is a technique I learned from Jackie Bultje's blog a few years ago when we were playing with Brushos. It's very simple, but very effective!
Once the Watercolour Paper is dry, remove the tape mask. I mounted mine on Melon Mambo and a Gorgeous Grape card base, and added the sentiment cut with the Well Written Dies in Mango Melody.
I love the effect the blasts of water made on the pigment sprinkles, activating individual crystals as they struck the paper...who knew that one of the colours had that bright blue in its makeup?
The cards made by my customers using masking tape had a crisper line...the Post-It tape let the moisture bleed up into the masked area.
Tinted Embossing Paste: Pigment Sprinkles activate with water...and it doesn't take much! The liquid in our White and Shimmery White Embossing Pastes are enough to make it work.
I did a little cutting-down, matting on Cajun Craze and then a Garden Green card base. I also added a retired sentiment die-cut in Black Foil that was sitting on my desk.
In this picture you can really see the sparkle of the Shimmery Embossing Paste! I trimmed down the masked layer and mounted it on Daffodil Delight before adding it to a Bermuda Bay card base. I stamped an image and sentiment from Silhouette Scenes onto Vellum card stock in Versamark, and then used Black Shimmer Embossing Powder to heat emboss. I cut it out with an Oval Layering Die and adhered with a little Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue behind the image and words.
Come back tomorrow for more techniques and projects with Pigment Sprinkles!
I've been paper-crafting since 2006, and an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2010. I love sharing my craft with others, either through classes or by creating special cards and gifts that meet their needs. Join me in creating fun!
