My very sweet young friend Ashten and her friend Katie are off to England to do good in the world for a few months. This is the card I made for Ashten. This Stamping Bella image called Uptown Girl Molly Takes A Detour was perfect for the occasion. She was clear embossed with Tsukineko Versafine Vintage Sepia and Colored with Copics.
Colors used are....
Skin~E50, E51, E53, R20
Hair~E51, E53, E57, E47

Sponged with Memento Desert Sand and Rich Cocoa while still in the die. Popped up over An A2 Filligree Spellbinders from the Amazing Paper Grace line that has had some green Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon threaded through it.
A little glitter in the center of the flowers from the JustRite True Friends Vintage Labels Four Set. Then the the whole card was sprayed with homemade Tsukineko Frost White Shimmer Spray using All Purpose Ink and Rubbing alcohol. It is very hard to photograph and capture the shimmer but it is has a pretty soft shimmer to it. Of course I had to add some rhinestones.
Ashten and Katie came over to make a quick and simple journal before they left yesterday on their adventure.
We used the same image and die cuts as the card for the focal point and Hero Arts International Skyline along the bottom. I did mine in Kraft and stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa. At CHA in January I tried a fabulous product that I had never tried before called Goosebumps Clear Texture Spray by Tsukineko at the Imagine Crafts Booth. I am so glad I got myself a bottle! I sprayed it on the cover of the journal after stamping and sponged rich Cocoa ink over it and what a texture it is! I love the feel and look of the cover after spraying! It resists the ink and has given it a worn look. Love this new to me product!! We punched a scalloped edge on the spine and added more rhinestones.
