Measurements: This week I’m including the 1/16” black border in the overall measurement, just cut the top piece 1/18” smaller if you follow mine.
Bottom under layer - 1 ½ x 3 ¾”, top under layer -1 ¼ x 3 ¼”, image panel 4 ½ in height, 2” across the top, 2 3/8 across the bottom
-Prismacolor pencils, baby oil and paper stumps were used to color the image using the Gamsol technique. Baby oil replaces the Gamsol/mineral spirits.
-The metal nailheads are attached with Diamond Glaze (any lacquer product will work). To make the process fast and easy I squeeze a drop of lacquer onto a waxed paper (I repurpose the paper that stickers and labels are purchased on), touch the end of a large corsage pin to the lacquer then to the back of the embellishment which picks it up, position it on the image and press down with a finger, there is a little time to slide the gem into position if needed before it sticks tight.
-The image panel was cut out by hand, the rounded corners is the design of the image. It is mounted on foam tape. The same thickness of paper the bottom lies on is glued to the top of the card along with the foam tape to keep it even.
-The black corner pieces are the negative portion of the EK Success Iron Eagle corner punch. Aleene’s tacky glue was used to attach to the card.
-Ink distressing was done on the script designer paper.
