Guest Designer Erika Taylor-Day 330 June 2012 | By admin in Birds, Cards, Pennants
Today is the last day of Erika Taylor’s stint as a guest designer for us, and we are sad to see it end! Erika is a fabulously talented (and super fun!) artist. Follow her blog for lots of great stuff, you won’t be disappointed! Now, over to Erika!
Today is my last day as a guest designer for Basically Bare and I’ll tell ya, I miss being a full time member of this team. The products are so wonderful to use, especially for a crafter like me, who loves to ink and alter.
Hello everyone, Erika Taylor here and I’m sharing with you my final project as a Basically Bare Guest designer. For this card I used the Gears #2, Pennants Large and Birds sets. I wanted to show you all how amazing the basically bare products take to paint, embossing powder and mists, so I hope this card shows that.
First off, I took a canvas pennant, and sprayed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Coffee Shop. Once dry I stamped it with a Wow Embossing Powders stamp and finished it with Wow Embossing Powder in Olive. I love how embossing powders looks on canvas.
For the Gears,I used a combination of paint daubers, embossing powders and Distress Stain to create the texture and look. Finally the little chipboard bird with felt wings was inked, stamped, embossed and painted, using the same combination from Wow Embossing Powders (Primary Bark and Olive).
Thank you so so very much Angela and Beth for allowing me to be a part of the team this year as a Guest Designer. I’m truly honored to be a part of this amazingly talented group of artists. Until next time
