hooray it’s here! release day for The Peekers at Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design! These are Elisabeth Bell images and just as cute as can be! i was tired of making cards so i just let myself go wild with a blank canvas:
talk about fun! I adhered an 8.5 x 11 piece of sticky back canvas to sturdy cardboard. I began by mixing some pearl mists using water, a little dye reinker and some perfect pearls. i used a blue and a green – i mixed my own because i wantred the color to be faint and i wanted the shimmer to match – i used the new Confection Colors – to DIE for! Once dry I took my Versamark pad and smeared it randomly around and added even more perfect pearl powder with a dry brush. a LIGHT mist of water seals them.
Next i laid down a Crafter’s Workshop Stencil - Number Collage – and then sponged over it with a sponge dauber and Lumiere paints – Metallic Emerald and Halo Pink – i wanted it to be random and in-exact. Next I pulled out some Viva Decor Modeling Cream – Pearl Lilac and Pearl Hydrangea – and smeared it on liberally. i swirled a bit with the end of a paint brush in the cream and then sprinkled on microbeads and Gala Glitz. Finally I stamped some music with the Prima Recital stamp.
My image is called Sweet Mischief – can you totally see Pezza doing that???
I colored her with Copics and then I used Smooch in Lettuce and Plumberry on the cake icing and the canister for a bit of shimmer. i used Liquid Pearls – Ruby red for the Cherries and the ball on top of the canister.
finally I finished it off by using Liquid Pearls – Peacock & Lavender – to finish around the edges. These are the new formula and boy does it ever ROCK! the pearls are AMAZING and form SO easily! LOVIN’ them!
Now get on over to the store and order a set of these cuties for yourself too! and check out the scads of other goodies Susana has in the store!
Enjoy your weekend!
