-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 image is paper sculpted using a metal ball stylus and a folded paper towel for cushion. First score lines on the front then turn the punched shape over and make circular motions with the stylus staying away the edges and score lines. This shows better in real life and gives the image more dimension.
-Art Glitter adhesive was used to apply glitter to the yellow flower centers.
-The black borders on each side of the stamped border is strips of paper glued to the card. Nestabilities was used for create the scalloped edge and the panel for the image.
-The pearls 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 pearl which picks it up, position it on the card and press down with a finger, there is a little time to slide the gem into position if needed before it sticks tight.
