I stamped and colored this image using prisma pencils w/gamasol about two months ago, then set it aside. This morning I wanted to try a couple of new things, so I dug it out.
I've had a bottle of diamond glaze for about a year. I thought it was only glue, really runny glue. Then I read the bottle. It was exactly what I was looking to try.
So before I went to work, I tried it out. I used it on the shoes, belt, nose and little ball on the cap of this image. I wanted to try another product and see if the results were the same. So I brushed on glossy varnish on the shower head, bubbles, brush and bar of soap. I used stickles for the tiny water droplets. Let this dry all day until I got home.
To finish this little project, I made the background paper using a template I had received as a gift for ordering some stamps. I sponged stonewashed ink over the template and sponged the edges. I cut out a curvy oval using my coluzzle, sponged the edges with wild plum and a little black. I used another plain oval coluzzle to cut out the image, which I sponged stonewashed on the edges. I popped up both ovals. I also did some doodling around the edges, and sponged butterscotch on the actual card edges.
This was my "try some new things" card. I like the way both of the products worked and looked. The glossy varnish was a little easier for me to use, because you brush it on. The diamond glaze comes out pretty fast, so you have to be kind of careful. Well, that's it for now. TFL :0)
