Supplies I used: Sakura Craft 3D Crystal Color Lacquer: Country, 3D Clear Crystal Lacquer, die cut pennant, die cut swirl (embossed with Tim Holtz texture fade), Colored Pencils, Distress Ink, Glitter, Fairy Rubber Stamp, and ribbon.
Then I went over the smaller spots, like the moon, flowers and butterflies, with Ivory and Country Red Color Lacquer. Then I went over all the green areas with the Jade Green Color Lacquer. I let that dry.
While I waited, I constructed the pennant, I distressed everything (except the image) and then inked them, and glued everything in place using Crystal Lacquer, I really like it for sturdy projects like this. Once the image dried, I trimmed around the edges and mounted it in it's spot, with pop up adhesive squares.
I really liked the way the pencils and Color Lacquer, which are both so subtle by themselves, created a lovely saturated, and ink or water color like look. As well as the enamel like, finished effect of the Lacquer.
For more great ideas (and believe me, these are some talented lassies)
