Fruit of the Odorless Mineral Spirits
When Michael's had the 50% coupons last week (the week before?), I was able to get some of the Prismacolor pencils for a bargain (they're usually marked at 25%, so you can't use the big coupon - I got lucky). Anyway, almost immediately, I ordered the Gamsol/odorless mineral spirits and blending stumps online (from Inky Antics), so I could try out the Gamsol Magic technique on this beautiful image from Our Daily Bread Designs. Fun! I also stamped the bunches of grapes two more times, so I could trim out portions and layer them using the Paper Tole technique. The layers looked funny popped up on dimensionals, so I just adhered them flat, then curled up the edges a little to show the dimension. You can see better in this detail shot:
BTW, sorry for the hokey post title - I couldn't resist! Have a happy Monday!
