Sheena Douglass Workshop

Yesterday I went to a workshop run by the very talented Sheena Douglass, what a blast and oh my gosh how I wish I was even halfway there.

This is one of the cards we made and I know it looks a bit flat because it is scanned but it is really quite a pretty card even though it looks very brown, the day was centred around alcohol inks and was great to play.
This card has a background stamped and then coated with mica powders, but because the ones we got were from the antique collection the colours show in the light, once we had put the powders on we spritzed with water and left it until we got the look we wanted then dried it with a heat gun. The topper was made using a die cut for the topper and this was coloured with the alcohol inks, we then stamped a small flower onto the smallest piece of card which was already cut for us by Sheena's wonderful hubby Russ and just used an almost dry paintbrush to pull the paint out a bit to give it some shadow. This was layered onto the gold layer which we had sanded to give it a distressed look.

I'll be showing you some more things over the next few days but if you haven't been to one of her workshops I suggest you go on one if you can, mind you there will be a queue as most people there will be wanting to go again very soon.
