Favorite Technique and Product at Simon Says Stamp Challenge




The theme this week at my favorite challenge, Simon Says Stamp, is to showcase our favorite technique and/product. My favorite products right now are my colored powders from Brusho, Bister and Color Burst. And my favorite technique to do with those products is to use cling wrap (or saran wrap) on glossy paper after wetting the colored crystals or powders. Sometimes the technique results in very dramatic lines but sometimes the result is more subtle like in this background. Here is a picture of the background close up: 
I sprinkled blue and green Brusho Colour Crystals on a glossy piece, and spritzed with a gold Shimmer Mist, then applied scrunched up cling wrap and let it sit for about 15 minutes. I love how it turned out. Then I die cut Tim Holtz's new Mixed Media corner (from Sizzix) out of vellum, and a couple of pennants (also from Sizzix.) The sentiment is from Precious Remembrance. I attached the vellum with glue dots under some funky square sequins.

I am entering this card in the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and the Anything Goes challenge at Crafty Sentiments Designs.

That background is FAB-o! It's easy to see why this is your favorite technique when it creates such stunning results.

I have to try the cling wrap sometime soon. I will wait until the grandkids leave though as I am too busy for much other than their attention. I sure love the look of it and you are always inspiring me.
