clingfilm meets brushos

Well the caught in acetate didnt work very well with the brushos, they're too intense for the look I was aiming for, could have been that I was too heavy handed or that I really should have got proper wrapping tissue not kitchen towel.  The one that I flooded did lose the effect I wanted so I doubt I'll revisit the technique with them.

Back to playing with clingfilm as I'd enjoyed it so much and was determined this time to actually make a card rather than just post pics of the papers which you can't really see on screen anyway.This one was made with spring, leaf & olive greens.  Firstly I sprayed the clingfilm with biscotti perfect pearls mist, sprinkled the crystals, scrunched around a bit and left to dry.  It was only ever intended to be used for diecutting not as a background but I did make me wonder what I was going to use as a background for the card.

I had a bit of a eureka moment then.. cream card with mild gold streaks to complement the veins in this one, but how to do it... easy peasy when you think about it... clingfilm technique but with just the perfect pearls spray.

One spritz and a while later I had a square large enough to be the backing sheet and a strip to stamp the sentiment on.

Yet again blogger is rotating the image, grr.

The flower in the middle is a Tim Holtz tattered pinecone die that I used to cut some sandstone, yellow ochre & dark brown clingfilmed card.
Quick double bow from ribbon I've had in my stash for years, bit of matting and layering with a soft gold stardream and one finished card.
It's make your own background as this weeks challenge on Simon Says Stamp so I think this fits the bill lol.

Edited to add I've found how to cure the rotating pic problem.  When you go to insert a pic if it looks as though it's been rotated don't insert it, just go to your picasa album in another tab ( find the pic in amongst the folders, rotate and save it.  Now go back to the blogger tab and go to insert again, this time chose to upload from your picasa album and chose the pic you've just saved.
