Friday Sketch Challenge #38

There's a new challenge starting today over @ Friday Sketch Challenge & it's my sketch you have to play with this week, hope you like it!

This week we have a super prize for you from our sposor

After watching Sheena on create & craft playing with different mediums I decided to have a play!
I got my 'sticky finger' inks out, sprayed them on my kitchen worktop (I used green & yellow). I then wet a piece of white paper/card which I laid on top of the ink. Perfect pearls was then sprayed onto this to give a golden shimmer & this was left to dry, speeded up with the heat gun. 
Following this week's sketch I cut the paper I created square and cut in half diagonally, this was distressed round the edges to give a bit of definition,. This was then mounted onto a black mat.

I used 'drop tree' rubber stamp from Flonz to stamp the image with a clear ink. Black embossing powder was then applied to this which was heated with a heat gun. I cut the image out with a spellbinders die and applied more gold perfect pearls round the edge, this was then mounted onto a black scalloped circle mat.

The image was attached to the card base with foam pads, craft cards candi was added along with a heat embossed sentiment from HOTP.

I had such a great time getting messy that I got more inks out and coloured more papers. Just need to use them now!

Hop on over to the challenge blog for more inspiration from my teamies.
Can't wait to see what you create with my sketch!
