PTI-March 2014 Blog Hop-High Gloss

The theme for the PTI-March 2014-Blog Hop is:  High Gloss.
I clear-embossed the sentiment die-cut, & used Glossy Accents on the heart.
For added dimension, the white panel is popped up with foam adhesive.

I am also playing along with Betsy's, PTI-Make It Monday #157: DIY Cover Plates.
To create the background, I used the following:
Bubble Talk Die Collection
2009 Bitty Dot Basics Patterned Paper Collection.

Watercoloring - TAG-CARD

I stamped the Hero Arts-Post Card stamp twice, to create a top-folding TAG-CARD.
These were the steps I took to create the watercolored panel:
  • covered a book page with gesso
  • used reinkers & water to do the watercoloring
  • splattered watered-down Black Soot-Distress Ink
  • splattered watered-down black acrylic paint (for a more intense black)
  • splattered watered-down (Golden Acrylics)-Iridescent Gold (Fine)
(It was difficult to photograph the gold splatters.)

I'm playing along with the following challenges:

All stamps are by Hero Arts, & the sentiment die is by Simon Says Stamp.
