Can you tell I've been hiding in my craft room and playing lately. Yes, and that is one of the challenges I'm entering this week. Especially since it is a free style challenge. Not sure exactly what that means but I think this card will qualify.
The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of calligraphy paper. I love this stamp from Just For Fun. Not only is it fun to stamp with but also to cut out free form. Plus it reminds me of falling leaves.
I decided to go ahead and let the glaze dry overnight. I did like how the chalk mixed in with the glaze coloring some of the gold glitter.
Then this morning a possible solution came to me. O.K. my alcohol markers bleed through on this card stock so I'll see what happens when I color on the back of the panel. The markers didn't bleed through where some glaze seeped to the back but still it was better. Alas the dark yellow doesn't show up well in the photo of the panel but I wanted to show the shine and glitter.
The instructions had the panel matted but I forgot that detail. I guess because for the most part I'm not a mat girl. Because I used strong double sided tape to adhere the panel I was afraid I would ruin my card by pulling it up and adding a mat.
Challenge I'm entering:
I know I probably sound like a broken record but I encourage you to join in challenges. Not only is it fun but the more you stretch your creative muscles the more creative you will become.
O.K. I'm off to hide once again in my craft room to work on another weekly challenge. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
