SCACD new release time! Come hop with us

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.

I added a banner made on my Cricut Imagine and some teeny bows to hold it together – easy to make with the Bow Easy.  The big beautiful blooms are all available at SCACD!

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!

    your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?

    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.

  5. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide
