Here is the modified Blog Tour Post with details. New information in RED!
I am featuring the new Autumn Days set, page 92 in the NEW Idea Book & Catalog, as shown here:
It is a very versatile set with a masculine feel that you will want to add to your collection right away!!
Details: In case you can't see, the background also has the wheat image lightly stamped in Creamy Caramel and a light sponging around the edge. Polished stone uses Glossy Cardstock, reinkers & Alcohol. A good tutorial is HERE on SCS. It's really as simple though as applying alcohol to your cotton ball (get it wet but not dripping) then adding drops (one each of the above colors) of reinker. Put a few drops of the metallic ink right on the cardstock then go over it with your dotted cotton ball and work your way across the cardstock. Your drops of ink will blend with the metallic ink. Using metallic ink will require that you spray it with an Acrylic Mat sealer. If you want to see the technique without metallic, click here for two samples. It's faster without the metallic because you don't have to take time to seal it. But, it's REALLY pretty with the metallic in there!
Details: I think the only thing I probably need to address here is the "thumping". If you haven't tried it, grab your markers! I first inked the pheasant with More Mustard on top & Soft Suede on the bottom. Then I took the brush tip of my Elegant Eggplant, Ruby Red, & Always Artichoke & tapped it onto the pheasant, staying more toward the top then bottom. Huff on your stamp to refresh the ink & stamp it!
