Crafting in a hotel room with limited supplies brought in luggage
We're leaving here tomorrow morning really early to return home. I was supposed to be packing up all my things today but.. this idea popped up in my head when I saw the FaceBook reminder for Can You Case It. So, umm.. I didn't make much of a mess and I have been keeping my supplies mostly packed as I create in this oh so small space in the hotel and I don't have a lot of stuff with me, too. This is the last card I can create while in Missouri on this trip.
I started with a scrap of watercolour cardstock and 6 colours of Distress Ink minis smushed on to my plastic work sheet.
I liberally sprayed the ink with the mini Mister.
I laid the watercolour card stock in the wet ink and pressed it into the ink. When I picked it up, I dabbed the few uncoloured areas into the ink left on the work surface. Then I sprinkled on some copper Perfect Pearls and brushed it in to give some random bits of coppery sparkle.
Since I don't have a heat tool with me, I used the heat of my laptop's power adapter to dry the panel. I'm starting to think that might be a good thing to do at home, too, though the laptop in my workshop is smaller and thus doesn't have as big an adapter. But it is handy for a non-blowing warm spot.
Using the Misti, I stamped a leaf with Carved Pumpkin directly on the kraft card base.
I brushed on bronze Perfect Pearls and burnished it in with a Swiffer cloth. This also wiped away the excess from around the leaf. I like the subtle shine of Perfect Pearls that shows sparkly turned to catch the light.
I masked the first leaf with a Post-It mask I made for a different project and stamped a second leaf in Fossilized Amber and Mustard Seed. To the second leaf I added gold Perfect Pearls. I masked the second leaf and stamped a third in Dried Marigold which I burnished with pearl Perfect Pearls.
I stamped the yellow and orange panel with copper "Wishes" and Potter's Clay "Warm. Then I ran the edge along the gold ink pad to give it a finishing touch.
I attached the sentiment panel with foam mounting tape for a little dimension.
Inside the card I stamped a swirl with Mustard Seed and another sentiment with Potter's Clay.
