BTB 17 ~ Geode Technique Tutorial

 Happy Friday!!


We've got such a fun treat this week! Our very own Holly Brown has a twist on a fun background for you to create! Just follow her instructions below for a cool Geode Background!


Glittery Geode Background Tutorial

by Holly Brown

 

Supplies:

glitter glaze/glitter paste - any colors, any brand

cardstock - any color

palette knife, optional

ink pad to match glitter glaze/paste and sponge, optional



 

Step 1 (optional):

Ink up sponge and drag across cardstock.  This step is optional - doing this will deepen the color of your glitter glaze. 



Step 2:

Using finger or palette knife, dip into glitter glaze and dab over cardstock (on top of your inked areas from Step 1). 



 

Step 3:

Using clean finger or clean palette knife, dip into second color of glitter glaze and dab it next to the first glitter glaze.  Gently blend colors together, adding more glitter glaze if needed.   Repeat this step with a third color of glitter glaze if desired.

  


 

Step 4:

Set cardstock aside to dry for at least 4 hours.  It may need additional time to dry, depending on how thickly the layers of glitter glaze are applied.


In this picture, the first sample on the left was done with turquoise ink (Step 1).  This one has a darker turquoise color than the two blue samples in the middle.  The two blue samples in the middle were done without ink - I skipped Step 1 on these.  I also skipped Step 1 on the black and pink sample on the right, and I used three glitter glazes.

 

Step 5:

Finish as desired with stamps, dies, and embellishments.



Here are some of the creative DT samples!
