Simon Says Monday Challenge - Lucky and Make It Monday #156: 3D Stamp Paint Techniques

Simon Says Monday Challenge - Lucky 

I got this cute little lucky Fairy from Tiddly Inks this week.  After printing her out, as she is a digi, I colored her with copic markers.  Good practice here on hair.  I made her into a tag and just added a bunch of elements.  I worked on this for a few days, adding and adding.  The feather is from PTI and I made the buttons from pony beads that are melted in the oven.  I like how this one turned out. 
Next is a card that I made for   Make It Monday #156: 3D Stamp Paint Techniques
This one was a little harder, as I did not have the paint that was used, but I mixed up something with the help of You Tube.  I had an embossing folder that was metal and I painted that and then ran it thru the die machine.  I got a raised texture for the background that I liked. 
Then I added a panel that I dry embossed with cane back folder and sponged it.  The paper colors are Sweet Corn and a Green from my stash.  The stamp set is Papertrey Ink Delightful Dahlia Additions.
After stamping the dahlia and fussy cutting it out, I adhered it with foam squares, to that panel.  The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed with black on vellum, and there is a button hiding the glue.  I think I would need to practice more on this technique. 

Thanks, as always for stopping and I do appreciate your comments.

  3. Yikes - you are so inventive. I have been racking my brain trying to come up with something like the 3-D paint. I tried that recipe on the YouTube video that Donna shared, but just hated what I got from it. Is that the one you used? Your card is awesome, love your colors and design. I must try something again - YOU have inspired me!!!
