All The Glittery Things…

All The Glittery Things…

What’s better than a Golden Mexican Martini? A GLITTERY Golden Mexican Martini! This card features Picket Fence Studios’ Life Changing Blender Brushes, Tequila and Duct Tape stamp set, Seriously Word Die, Intense Black Hybrid Ink, Martini Glass Die, and Martini Glass Stencil – plus, MINI MISTI by My Sweet Petunia and Therm O Web’s Purple Tape, Gina K/Therm O Web Glitz Glitter Glaze, Stencil Pal, and Pixie Spray. The idea came to mind when I opened a jar of Gina K/Therm O Web’s Glitz Glitter Glaze (Grass Green). This is really good stuff! It’s thick with tons of perfectly cut glitter that spreads across paper like butter on hot steamy bun.
I started using a hand-cut A2 card front of Neenah Solar White 110 card stock – this paper was chosen because of its thickness and durability. Before placing Picket Fence Studios’ Martini Glass Stencil on top of paper, I sprayed the back of the stencil with Therm O Web’s Pixie Spray for stencils. This is a revolutionary product that takes stenciling to the next level. Pixie Spray puts a light coating on the back of a stencil, which allows the stencil to become slightly tacky. It’s a dream product for all stencil lovers!
Next, I used Therm O Web’s Stencil Pal tool to spread Grass Green Glitz Glitter Glaze across the Martini Glass stencil. I recommend the Stencil Pal, because it’s a thin plastic that flexes and allows scooping and spreading of almost any medium. Plus, you get two in a pack for about $6.00!
While allowing the glaze to dry, I die-cut three Martini Glass Die cuts from Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock. I like this card stock when I plain on misting paper with water for a distressed water look on die-cuts. Then, I grabbed Therm O Web’s Purple Tape to mask off a portion of the rim and base of the martini die cuts. I then used my Life Changing Blender Brushes to add Gina K’s Wild Dandelion yellow ink to the portion of the die-cuts I masked off to create the look of Golden Mexican Martinis. Lastly, I misted the martinis with a bit of water and dried using a heat tool.
Finally, I stamped a sentiment from Picket Fence Studios’ Tequila and Duct Tape Stamp set using my MINI MISTI. I always use a MINI MISTI for sentiment stamping. It allows precision stamping with the correct amount of pressure to achieve a crisp perfect impression.
