Workshop Michael Strong at Art Specially Zeist

Last week there was a big
stampshow in The Netherlands:
The Art Specially Event
in Zeist.
I found a nice video
on youtube, so if you like to see more
go here:
Michael Strong was also here
and gave a free make&take
all weekend.
On Saturday he made greenhouses.
First people colored the paper with
different colors of inka gold paint.
This dries very quickly, so on top
the house was embossed with
pearlscent ivory embossing powder.
The house was cut out and  matted on
a piece of gold paper.and glued to the
card. With leave and flower punches
and the left over colored paper the ribbon
 of gold was decorated next to the house.
On Sunday there was a different workshop.
Chocolate card with the heart embossed with
orient express embossing powder.
Mike made me a version with the coffee
cup as well. The border of the card is made
out of different sizes circles and little
punched out hearts.
The card is ale decorated with a dark
chocolate pearl pen that leaves little
pearl dots.
So today I made a combination of these
two cards.
First I colored my paper with gold and red
inka gold paint by Viva Decor
Then I stamped the cloisonné heart on top
with versamark and embossed it with orient
express embossing powder. When finished the
heart is cut out.

For de border I used a few circle punches
and the heart punch.

Also I used a red pearl pen by Viva Decor.
The sentiment is by Stampin Up! (Whimsical Words).

The dots are also on the heart.

Have a creative day!
