Here is this month’s sketch.....
Dare for January is......use Texture on your dies!!
My Take on this sketch challenge is all about "TEXTURE"!
Adding texture to your Die~Namites Dies cut outs...
Pick size of card 6 1/2 x 5
Distress the edges of the pattern paper and card base.
Add some gesso to the edges of pattern paper-it gives the paper
a shabby chic feel...
Using your favorite mask/stencils
add texture with plaster/gesso mixture
I like to add a few layers to make it thick...
Taking the "Song Bird" die cut
I gesso the whole cut out, adding a layer of plaster
and dry with heat tool and repeat!!
I repeated this step a few times...
While the last step dries...I splattered my favorite mists
over the card front....
Last step I added even more texture
by using Viva Precious Metal Colour in Mother of Pearl
heat set it to bubble...cool texture!!
