Delicate and beautiful, the diecuts from these quality wafer thin metal dies will be featuring elegance and beauty on your projects for years to come! And now I have the honor of introducing you to the latest and greatest SCACD products....drum roll please....
NEW Natures Tapestry Fan Die and the Classic Corner Die. Oh my goodness when I found out Susana was releasing her very own die line I knew I was going to be in LOVE with them all! These EXCLUSIVE beauties are oh so stunning! I can't wait to order up the rest of them now!!! AND...if you like my Mixed Media project and didn't know this....SCACD has a whole section dedicated to Mixed Media....there are LOTS of awesome products in this category.....you can find them all -->HERE<-- don't be afraid to get messy and try something new because the results you come up with can be truly breath taking!!! Again, I dare you to step out of your comfort zone and get your "mess" on!
-->HERE<--. I then took my Luminarte Silks in Pink Grapefruit, Vaboom Red, and Solar Gold, and started to paint away by blending these colors together on my canvas. I just picked up a little of each color at a time and kept painting away. When I liked what was painted on my canvas I let that dry for about an hour.... then I came back to the canvas and brushed on a couple more swipes of each color in various spots to get each particular color to stand out instead of them all being so blended. Seriously if you do NOT have any of the Silks this is by far a product you NEED to add to your craft supplies....these babies are AMAZING let me tell ya! The shimmer and shine in each one is astounding! I love the metallic shimmer of each color....When I was complete with painting my canvas it reminded me of a beautiful sunset!
Natures Tapestry Fan was cut out on a white piece of cardstock. To get the gorgeous color of the fan I used my Gum Arabic, Luminarte Clear Medium, Cranberry Mica, and Solar Gold Mica. On my craft mat I first mixed up equal parts of my Cranberry Mica and Gum Arabic and then mixed in some Clear Medium. This made a paint which I coated the whole fan with. Then I mixed equal parts of Gum Arabic and Solar Gold Mica mixed along with some Clear Medium which made me a gorgeous gold paint and very lightly feathered this gold paint on the bottom half of the pan to add a soft goldish tint/shimmer. The lace that I gathered behind my fan started out white....to get it colored I took my Pink Grapefruit Silk and Solar Gold Silk and painted up the lace so it would coordinate with the rest of my project. Rhinestones accent the flowers on the fan and Diamond Stickles accent the lace.
Classic Corner Die was used to accent the canvas corners - these were cut out on black cardstock. I then took the same Micas that I used to paint the Fan (Gum Arabic, Luminarte Clear Medium, Cranberry Mica, and Solar Gold Mica)and lightly painted the corners. I love the Micas on dark cardstock.....look at the gorgeous shimmer and sparkle in each of these colors but how different it looks on the black cardstock vs. the white cardstock! Aren't Micas AMAZING?! I truly do LOVE all of the Luminarte products!!!
25mm Tea Rose, 25mm Rose, 20mm Rose, 8mm Semi-opened Roses, Gypsophilas, 4mm Rosebud, Small Sequin Butterfly, and a gorgeous Webster Pages Butterfly Pin. Flowers were sparalized with Diamond Stickles.
