These photos of Elizabeth and Maria pushing each other around in a barrel are so much fun! I haven't had the time to write up my normal blog notes, but hopefully can have more details and a flower tutorial posted by Monday.
It's reveal day at The Scrapping Stamper. Here is my take on Shannon's fun and fabulous sketch:

Set aside your crackle piece to dry.
I'm not sure if it is clear in these photos, but the perfect pearls, add more of a metallic shine and shimmer to the chipboard. Totally optional. I first brushed on the Perfect Bronze, then over that brushed on some Cappuccino. Perfect pearls contains a binder that is activated by water, so once you have the perfect pearls brushed on, mist with some water - shown in the second photo. After spritzing, I blotted it dry with paper towels.
Now brush on some black glitter glue. I used Studio G, but any clear glue with black glitter will work. As mentioned in the supplies, I would NOT use black diamond stickles, because I don't want silver sparkle here, just some black to settle into the crevices to give some more age. The Black Soot Stickles might work. I haven't tried them, but if the glitter chunks are black in a clear glue medium, they should work.
This photo doesn't look a lot different from the previous one, but trust me, in peson the black glitter really adds a lot of age/grunge, that isn't showing up in this photo.
Now let's finish up the crackle part.

Before I get to the close-ups and details I normally share about my layouts, I have some exciting news!
