Painting with Tattered Angels

Day 3 of May Arts / Tattered Angels Blog Week!

Painting with Tattered Angels

There are so many ways to use the various "paint" products from Tattered Angels, it is hard to choose just one.  I decided to use Glimmer Mist and Glam to give HINTS of dazzle on this piece.


 I used a negative to chipboard sheet with a bit of Glimmer Mist, "English Ivy" on cardstock to create a light image on the paper as a background.


Once it has dried, I stamped a set of shutters from the new "Windows" set, created for The Rubber Cafe.  (


The stamp was created in a way that allows you to cut the two shutter images seperately to make "working" shutters.  I used Glimmer Glaze to enhance the outside of each shutter to give it dimension.




I used the same Glimmer Glaze to add some reflection patterns on the windows.  Once it dried I applied Ranger's "Perfect Pearls" on the inside window boxes.

Put it all together with some beauitful May Arts Ribbon, adding the finishing touch to this card.
