Hello! It's Sara from Much Love Sara, here to share some fun today. Today I'm sharing a card, that has 3D embellishments made from Paper Glaze!
Have you ever been playing with a product, and had a random "I wonder..." go through your mind? This happened to me recently, with the Paper Glazes - I wondered how they would work in silicone molds. So, I quickly dug out a mold, and filled a few spots with the Snowdrop White Paper Glaze. Two days later, I popped the glaze out of the mold, and was left with some super pretty and detailed 3D embellishments.
The embellishments are still slightly flexible, and spring back when you press them. And you can paint additional colors of Paper Glaze onto them to create different effects. Depending on the thickness of your mold, the drying time may be less - I was a little overly cautious, and allowed them to dry an extra day beyond when they seemed dry, just to be certain the center was solid.
I created a card to feature the embellishments, by taping off the bottom and sides of a rectangle shape on a card front, and ink blending with my Life Changing Blending Brushes, and Peacock Feathers, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks so that they faded upwards. Then, I inked up the View of the Sea stamp with the Peacock Feathers Ink, and wiped off the top of the stamp before stamping. This allowed the stamp to fade with the ink blending below. This panel was then heat set to make certain it was dry, before being stamped with the jellyfish image from the Swim in the Sea Stamp Set, that was heat embossed with Opaque Vanilla White embossing powder. From the same stamp set, the turtle and fish images were stamped in gray ink, and colored in with a few colored pencils, before being die cut with the Coordinating Dies. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed in gold, onto a strip of teal card stock.
I used a soft paint brush to mix a bit of water with a small amount of the Paper Glazes that I wanted to use to color the embellishments. The seashell was painted with a bit of Brown Dahlia Paper Glaze, and Golden Rose Paper Glaze. The seahorse was coated in Ocean Poppy Paper Glaze, and then Golden Rose Paper Glaze was daubed on top. Use the color sparingly, and allow the first color to dry before adding additional colors, or layers - to keep the embellishment from becoming too wet and losing some detail.
The different elements were adhered to the card front with liquid adhesive, foam, and hot glue, and the card front was mounted onto a white mat, before being added to a teal card base using foam. A few drops of Ivory Seashell Nuvo drops, finished off the card front.
I hope you are inspired to create some 3D embellishments for your own cards using the Paper Glazes. Have a fantastic Tuesday!
