"Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted" Matthew 23:12 Memory Verse for Week 4 of Revive Our Hearts Esther Bible study.
Today, I have been playing with an acrylic paint technique and an oxide inks technique. I will show you the one with the oxide inks. This was done for our Try a New Technique Challenge on SplitcoastStampers today. They directed us to this tutorial, which I watched while doing this.
I applied gesso to my cardstock first. Then I applied the oxide ink direct from the pad to the stencil.
I did this with four different ink colors and three different stencils. After I applied the ink to the stencil, I spritzed it with water a couple of times. Then I laid the stencil down on the paper. I did each stencil and even on top of the other, but I dried in between; I just dabbed with a paper towel.
Then I cut the paper down to the size I wanted. I chose where I liked the design best. I will have leftovers for another card.
My finished card: I added the piece to a turquoise base and added a thank you die cut. I want to play with this some more!
For Elizabeth's T Stands For Tuesday over at Altered Book Lover, I have these photos for you. I have been wanting to walk around this pond at a local shopping center. A friend and I had lunch there, and then walked around the pond. She took the photos for me. :)
There were heron, too, but she didn't get a photo of them. However there is something on top of the bridge.
And here I am with my water from lunch. :)
Have a wonderful week! I am having fun in my craft room, hope you are doing some fun things, too.
Thanks for stopping by.
