It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about Pattern Papers. There are so many fabulous paper packs to choose from, but you can also make your own for this challenge!
I rarely use Pattern Papers although I love the look of them for sure. So I have a few. Recently I bought one I'm totally in love with, Sea Breeze from Kaiser Craft. I saw it months ago and couldn't wait to get it!
First I've selected two sheets from the Sea Breeze paper pack and distressed them with peacock feathers and Ground Espresso Distress Ink. The light one is for the front side and the other is for the back to act like a frame. I'm so used to begin with a blank sheet, but I had an idea about how I wanted it very soon after I started.
To the Crackle Texture Paste I've added Pale Silver Mica Powder. It was a bit too thick that I to add a little water to it(that part is not in the video). Probably the reason that the crackles are hardly showing.
For the Wildflowers I used Pitch Black Paint Dabbers, along with Black Soot Distress Embossing Powder. I think these are discontinued. But if you have them laying around, you can create very cool texture with it, even more than you maybe know. I've applied 2 layers of both. Because I've used paint and there are release crystals in the Distress Embossing Powder, those two things makes the cool texture. The paint bubbles because of the heat and the release crystals are stuck in the paint and don't release but giv the sandy texture. It really looks like carbonized wild flowers. By applying Opal Magic Paint Alchemy in some places, the texture gets even more defined and it gets more dimension.
