I had a couple of swaps that I needed to get completed then I’ve been piddling…….thought I would show you first an item I created for a Banner Swap in my ARTHaven group…….I wanted to personalize the one I made for the recipient who gets it….and tried to make in some of her favorite colors……she loves blue/tan……so here’s what I came up with……
The pinnate piece I did the print and cut with my Black Cat…….I LOVE the fact that SCAL 3 does such an AMAZING job with my Black Cat on the perfect cuts……LOVE IT!!!!! I did a lot of distress on the edges with my Distress Ink Pads and blending tools…….I also stamped the swirls with Distress Ink then coated in embossing powder…embossed then distressed the edges with distress inks…..On the letters I did the Print & Cut with my Black Cat & SCAL3 See how PERFECTLY they cut out….then distressed a wee bit with distress inks and then coated with perfect medium and coated with clear embossing powder…heat embossed…then coated again with perfect medium and then coated with clear UTEE and heat embossed again…it gives the letters a glass like finish…….
I’m really happy with how this turned out and I SO hope Rita is too!!!!! It’s all packaged up and winging it’s way to her tomorrow!!!!
