There is so much you can do with the new Glimmer Glam and Glimmer Glaze- it is really fun to try it out. One of my new fun techniques I like to do is what I call “Layered Texture Stamping”. I love texture on my embellishments and layouts and the new Tattered Angels Media give you an amazing possibility to add a tactile extra oomph to your pages and projects.
I used the Haunted Tree Screen and sprayed it with three different colors of the yummie Glimmer Mist Fall Edition.
Sugar Maple, Pomegrenate and Dragonfly- ohhh yummie colors
Then you carefully lift the Stencil and put it upside down on a piece of paper/Cardstock
You can over the whole screen with a paper towel and roll over it so the Glimmer Mist sets into the paper.Then lift the screen.
You can see that I wasn’t really covering the whole screen- so there are some spaces that are not nicely transfered- but…with the layering we can fix this No need to throw this away. Use the Glimmer Glaze Color of your choice and put it with the little attached Brush right onto your Stamp. Don’t forget to clean you stamp real quick as the dried Glimmer Glaze will otherwise hurt your stamp. Then stamp on top of the misted tree.
Next I love to stamp with Versamark and emboss with clear embossing powder.
You can see the wonderful texture that is created already – the tree trunk actually has the texture of a real one
Now I put the tree stamp on again – but a bit off the already created shape and sprayed with Apple Glimmer Mist – also Fall Edition – over the crown of the tree.
I love how the Glaze and embossed areas resist the Glimmer Mist and give the tree even more dimension and depth. Next I wanted to mimic the Changing of the colors during Fall inspired by the wonderful Leaf Peaking Roadtrip I once did in New England in Fall. So I used some of the Glimmer Glam and stippled with two different colors with a fan brush into the crown.
I then also used another color of Glaze and went over some parts of the tree again. (I never know when to stop- LOL)
Then I cut the image out and mounted it on a tag for a card for someone.
I did something similiar with another card and image for Halloween- the cat – you will see the card in my design team post on the DesignTeam Blog at the end of the month
You can learn this and other techniques using Tattered Angels Products in on of my upcoming workshops for example
