Deb Lovett's Spray Starch Technique
This is a fun technique.
I used it for these challenges
Oops this was supposed to be an ATC, darn.
I started with the background provided by Art Creations.
I sprayed this liberally with spray starch then added
sprinkles of copper, gold and green Pearlex. I sort of swirled
the mixture around. Deb suggests that you use a brush but
I completely forgot that step. There was a pretty heavy coat
of starch so I grabbed a white sheet of glossy card stock and
laid it glossy side down on to the starch mix. Removed and
wow I had a pleasing pattern. I did it a second time with another
piece of glossy. It's sort of messy so be sure to prepare your
surface with layers of newspaper.
These were set aside to dry.
Complete details of this technique are available at ggdesigns Gazette.
Now comes the fun of turning my pretty papers into a card.
My first layer is the printed patterned card stock altered with
the technique. The next layer is gold vellum framing an altered
piece of the glossy. The key images were stamped on the altered
print and embossed with gold. The letters are gold stickers.
Getting Messy Hands
I used another piece of the spray starched printed card stock for the base.
The background image and the crow from my Printmaster collection .
The princess is from Art Freebies . Most of the coloring is done with
colored pencil. I colored her crown with gold gel pen. A touch of
lace and my piece is finished.
I completely forgot to post about Robyns Fetish Marvelous Monday
sticker freebie. It's ready for you to grab and use. Check out the challenge
