Step 1: Cut four squares of cardboard 2.25 x 2.25
Step 2: Paint the board with black paint. Try to leave texture in the paint.
Step 3: Stamp each block with a different image from SM42 Lacey Patterns using Versamark ink. It's really easy to line the stamps up in the center of the square since the stamps are clear.
Step 4: Emboss with amethyst embossing powder and heat set.
Step 5: Rub over the image using Viva Decor Inka Gold. Take a damp paper towel and rub off the gold from the embossed area.
Step 6: Add some thick tacky glue to your non-stick mat and water it down.
Step 7: Add a little around the edge of each tile, and sprinkle with glitter.
Step 8: For my patterned paper, I print one of the PNG files from our new CD, Creating with Vintage Patterns, at 5.75 x 5.75 inches onto Bazzill cardstock.
For the rest of the card, I colored and cut out the fairy from SL41 Born To Fly . I used Viva Decor Inka Gold to color the Embossed Frame. The small epoxy squares were made using the Mini Vintage Creative Scraps. Those scraps are so pretty, I had to force myself to cut into them! I also trimmed out the edges of the card using the Metallic Peel Off Stickers Gold Scallop and Dot Mini Trim. A few pearls, some seam binding and a vintage button, and this card was completed.
