Globecraft & Piccolo Canvas

Morning everyone, it is Tuesday which means some Globecraft & Piccolo inspiration from me. 
I have been creating with some of the new release this week, and have created a mini canvas. 
This was so fun to do. I coloured the canvas using Distress inks and then stamped along the bottom using Tall Grassy Flowers Stamp, i then dabbed adhesive fluid across the grasses and sprinkled a mix of Mermaid Tears Embossing enamel & Aged White across and heat set, I then took two of the new 3D Enamel Gels  and randomly dotted them to give them the look of flowers. 
The birds are from the Lil flowers, Leaves, Birds & Bows set and I have given them two coatings of UTEE in White and then rubbed some gold wax over them. 
The sun is from one of the new Piccolo Sets, Spring Accents, I did something slightly different with the sun.I cut it so it would fit in the corner  & then used my black Spectrum Noir and Coloured it so it was all black (including the edges), I then gave it a thin layer of 3D Enamel Gel In Daffodil Pearl, whilst it was still wet I sprinkled some Aged White over it and heat set, I then took the 3D Enamel Gel In Daffodil Pearl and put another layer on and waited 5-10 mins before wiping some of the gel away…I really love effect this has given and will certainly be using it more in the future. 
I hope you like my mini canvas, don’t forget to check back each day for some wonderful creations from the rest of the fab team.

Mixing Embossing powders.

Hi all, 
I wanted to share with you a Pendant that I have made this week. 
And here is how i created it…
First of all let me tell you what you will need- 
Black UTEE (Ultra thick Embossing Enamel)
Leather Cord
From the Fine Feathers Necklace set you need your pendant, one of the feathers…I later decided to add one of the swirls to. 
Using your Black UTEE & Enamel and Embossing powder Adhesive coat the pendant, I gave this 3 coats, but 3 probably would have given a smoother coating…it is personal preference. .if you have never used UTEE before It is slightly different when melting, it will “bead” and looking like you have melted it wrong, don’t worry, it will then melt fully into a lovely thick enamel. 
Anyone with a Melt Pot, this Black UTEE would be perfect to use with your Melt Pot. 
Now one thing i love with Embossing powders is that you don’t have to stick with just one colour, I LOVE Enamel Powder BAHAMA AQUA, but i wanted to “break” it up slightly for this, so in a small pot I mixed it with Black UTEE , when doing this test your “new” colour on some scrap paper first to make sure you are happy with the result. 
Take your feather (and Swirl) and Coat with Enamel and Embossing powder Adhesive
Give it a nice thick coating with your powder mix and melt using your heat tool…again I gave this 2 coats. 
I then dabbed some Enamel and Embossing powder Adhesive over where i wanted the feather and swirl to be and put a sprinkle of  Black UTEE and melted it with my heat tool, then using tweezers (its very hot so please use tweezers) I pushed my feather and swirl into the Enamel, then when it sets it will act a glue…you can see her that they are pushed into the enamel. 
Attach a cord and you are done. 
Here is another look at the finished pendant.
