Last night a few of us girlies got together and were shown a fab technique from Dawn Thomas. It was such a fun night. Pizza, Tim Tams and stamping, what more could a girl ask for!! Oh other than shopping for supplies!! Seriously though, we had a ball and Dawn was very patient with us and so I actually managed to make one card! Wow!! Such a long long time since I have made a card.... Funny as originally this is what I started out doing and how I was "exposed" to the world of altered art. This is such a fun technique and I have to say I've added my own personal touch to it. I went over the stickers/sponging with a gloss mod podge and it made the colours blend and run a bit, which I liked. Also giving the finished product a glossy finish!! No it's not dimensional magic this time girls!! But something pretty similar....lol. We also each brought a long some of our stamps, so it was a great chance to use some new toys!! Funny how everyone elses toys, always seem better than your own.
Ok so I've attached the one and only card I've made so far with this technique, but I have a few others that I'm working on at the moment. I like these stickers the best.
Have a fun weekend all
