Pear-fect Pair by Shona

Hi there, Designer Shona with you today to share my first August Reveal card, using the gorgeous Sketched Pear Set 905 and featuring the Nuvo Shimmer Powders.

I began by stamping the image using the stamp platform on watercolor paper with Clear Mark ink and then heat embossing with White Detail. This was then placed on my Tonic Easy Clean Mat and misted with water using the Nuvo Light Mist Sprayer.

The shimmer powders were applied sparingly and moved around with a little paint brush (I could have also used a water brush).

Solar Flare, Cherry Bomb, Catherine Wheel, Storm Cloud, Blue Blitz and Green Parade were used to color in the image.

After dusting the piece with the anti-static bag, I stamped "bartlett pear" sporadically around the image in Clear Mark ink and again heat embossed with White Detail.

I stamped the same image again on watercolor paper in Black Shadow Hybrid ink. This was fussy cut with the 5" mini scissors to be used as a mask.

Next I applied Custard Cream embellishment mousse through the Tim Holtz Speckles stencil.

When it was dry, it was framed with black cardstock and placed back in the stamp platform so that I could correctly position the sentiment at the bottom left corner.

I then took my "splattered" mask and colored it with the shimmer powders and a water brush.

The frame was edged with the same Custard Cream embellishment mouse, giving the frame a chalky look. This was then layered to a white card base. 

The colored "mask" was then mounted to the bottom right to finish off my card.
