Hello there crafty friends! I hope you've been enjoying all of the amazing collaboration projects shared! I do think Miss Ink Stamps (and products) and ThermOWeb products are a match made in HEAVEN. Do you agree?
Today I'm sharing this fun project featuring many of the most yummy products from Thermoweb and Miss Ink. Since I love to create brushstroke and layered backgrounds, I thought I'd go to town on this card. I started out by pulling out my O.P.I Clear Topcoat FINGERNAIL POLISH...YEP, I'm not kidding! and brushed a patch of polish on a strip of white cardstock. After that, I let it get a bit tacky...NOT DRY... and pressed a strip of beautiful Prince Periwinkle Deco Foil on it. I used a Starbucks card to burnish it over before hitting it with my heat gun just a few seconds before peeling it off. It reveals all the beautiful brushtrokes from the polish...in a beautiful holographic shine.
After creating this fun background, I brought it over to my sewing machine and applied some meandering stitch all over the design. It's gorgeous! Next, I attached some Fairy Dust Dazzle Dust and some Diamond Dots (in four different shades of brown) using iCraft Ultra Bond Adhesive. I also adhered two little pieces of silver tinsel ribbon to finish the look.
After that, I attached some double sided tape to the back and mounted the decorative panel onto a pink strip of cardstock using some fun Silver Photo Corners. They have adhesive on the back so they stick very well and will ensure your panel stays secure. Next, I started working on the base panel. I used the fun new stencil Starry Night and scraped some Deco Foil Blanco Transfer Gel and llet it dry for a while before attaching some of the same Deco Foil over it then ran it through my laminator. Oh that peel...Wooeeee!
Next, I stamped and colored (with Copics) the angel and the deer from the Little Angel stamp set. I fussy cut the images and popped them up on the decorated panel. I then tried to mimic the leaves on the angel's head by using a green Copic and black fineliner pen before fussy cutting them out (yes, I fussy cut those little babies!) and gluing them on to the panel. I mounted the design onto the starry panel before mounting the whole thing onto a lavender card base. I added the sweet sentiment to allow the most versatile and timely presentation.
Thanks so much for hopping over to check out my card! I hope you jump right in and play!!! That's what it's all about.

See you again soon! PS...Does the card smell like fingernail polish? NOPE, the smell of fingernail polish is gone and only lasts until about the time I'm finished with the card!
So sweet. I like the colors and texture of the background.
Such a beautiful card, I definitely have to try foiling with nail polish, that’s so clever!
Fantastic background. Have to try the nail polish trick. Don’t do a lot stitching on my cards but your idea really adds to the backdrop. Marvelous card. thanks for sharing. txmlhl(at)yahoo(dot)com
