It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Be Square".
I adore the Infusions Stains, but I have to admit this is my second attempt. The first one had become a muddy mess. Sometimes it doesn't goes they way I thought it would... What works best for me, is first apply a base coat with a paint, in this case Opal Magic Rose Gold paint, and then apply the Infusions with a mix of Mod Podge and water. If all that is dry I use Infusions with water. It doesn't stain as much because of the first layer of paint. The Opal Magic gives it a sort of golden shimmer in some places. Love that effect!
The droplets are also a new love of mine. Those little embellishments are the perfect touch and thet really look like water droplets. I use Tacky Glue to adhere with them, it dries transparent.The Flamingo die (thanks Marzena!) is designed by Kelly Purkey several years ago for STAMPtember. Unfortunately, it's no longer available, but Simon Says Stamp has other beautiful Flamingo similar dies, like this one from Echo Park. I started with a white flamingo die cut, and tried to color it. But that was a big fiasco (and have it cut out of the video, LOL) so I covered it up with a lot of black paint with a dabber top. This made the texture which fits perfectly, they look like feathers to me. It even worked out well with the beak. So happy with this lucky coincidence.
