So, here is my take on the sketch. I got special permission from Lynell to sneak this new stencil. Never fear, it will be out VERY soon. You can see that I enlarged the primary image and, because of that, really didn't have the room to mat it with those torn mats. I also moved it to the other side of the card. That decision was based on the direction that the bird was facing. I would like to think that I kept the spirit of the sketch by using layers of torn tissue paper, stacked and glued with a glue stick. I chose the colors because I wanted to invoke the feeling of a sunset. I reflected the glitter in the tissue paper to make it appear as if the sun was setting behind mountains.
As for the technique, I used Double Glitter. This time, I did it with a twist. Sometime, somewhere, I saw one of my Dream Team Sisters using double glitter with embossing powder. I chose to do the same here, to keep the raven black and glitter the "sunset" in the background. I first soaped the back of the stencil and applied it to the Double Sided Adhesive Paper. Then, I poured detail black embossing powder over the whole thing and pressed it down with my fingers. When I was sure that I had it well pressed in, I turned the stencil over and gave it a good flick. I carefully removed the paper, laying the whole thing stencil side down on the table, and peeling the paper off of the stencil. Then, I heat embossed it. I poured layers of colored glitter on the background to imitate the sunset. This time, I did not use Art Glitter, but instead the Woodware UK glitter that I brought home with me.
Check out how the other Dream Teamers have interpreted this sketch. I have reorganized my blog to make it easier to find everyone. Enjoy the creations and, most of all, feel inspired!
