Glossy Accents meets Messy Rabbits Village

Today`s workshop is to work along side the product write up for this week – Glossy Accents

To see the write up please click here

This card was made using the new Messy Rabbit Village stamps and I loved every minute of making up these latest samples as felt like an artist just stamping and colouring – well i`m far from that but with the aid of the stamps and my Lyra Aquacolours I dreamt I was !!!


1. Firstly either stamp if you have bold alphabet stamps ( on a nice weight card as the glossy accent will bend slightly when drying ) or print from the computer and cut out , or if you have a cricut machine that would do it for you – then with a koi water brush swip tones of red across the image  ( I used Lyra Aquacolours )  and allow to dry

 2. Then take the butterfly stamp from the Village  cheers pub extra`s stamps and I have used red versafine ink pad – make sure you go off the edge as it adds to the effect – you can make the edges bolder with black pen if needed

2. 210

 3. Then add the glossy accents – do not shake the bottle as this adds air bubbles  – starting with the edges run a line of the gloss around the edge and then fill in the gloss and set aside to allow to dry – it doesn`t take so long but i`d leave for the morning and check back later – and don`t be tempted to touch it !!!


 4. I have then stamped and coloured a small scene to go behind the letters , glittered the butterflies and and more glossy accents to the apples and the ivy leaves – this is where glossy accents has come into it`s own as it didn`t warp the paper

5. Take some backing paper and mount it onto your base card – I have have used a blossom paper from the Victorian Flowers Cd and then matted the picture onto green card and placed onto the matting with foam tape

5. 56

6. Then take your dried letters and I have used silicone glue to raise and mount these onto the card

Something a bit different but with lots of meaning to it
