This is such a simple technique, and so pretty! I used one of the new 2016 Spring collection Poppy dies (Bellina Butterfly Stem 1391); a Nuance background; and Magenta stamp Sending you warm thoughts (07.806.K).
First I prepared a Nuance background by applying Nuance powder to a dry piece of watercolor card stock. I used Orange, Golden Yellow, Bright Yellow and Red initially. I then sprayed the powdered panel liberally with pearly water (mix 1/4 tsp of Perfect Pearls Pearl powder into 2 oz water). After spraying, I tapped some Jade Green Nuance into the mix, and let dry.
I die cut the focal point out of white fun foam. It cut pretty easily, even though it is a fairly detailed image.
I sprayed the front of the die cut with spray adhesive, and put it into a tub of glitter. I got the idea for this from Laura Bassen, and I love the glittery, sugar-frosted look of it. I then sprayed adhesive on the back of the die cut and adhered it to the Nuance panel.
For the sentiment, I used a favorite Magenta stamp, "Sending you warm thoughts for a speedy recovery." I have a friend who is recovering from knee surgery, and I love this stamp because recovering from surgery does not mean you are sick, and this sentiment is not a command to "get well."
I had to split the stamp using a stamp positioner to make it fit. If you have not already seen the tutorial post on my blog for this, and you are not familiar with using a stamp positioner, you can view the post here. Scroll down to the end of that post for the tutorial.
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink, and embossed it with Judikins White Diamond embossing powder. I sprinkled a few sequins around and adhered them with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. The panel was mounted on a white card base.
This technique was so easy and fun to do! I hope you'll give it a try.
