Tattered Angels and Prima......

Hi friends!!!
I have more to share with you! Prima did a product exchange with one of my very favorite companies-Tattered Angels! Yay!! I love love love their stuff so i was really excited about this!

I made a couple projects using their amazing products-Glimmer Screens, Bingo and Calling cards, and of course-Glimmer Mist.
For this layout-I used the glimmer screen from the Blossom set on the background with Vintage Pink glimmer mist. I applied two good coats for a deeper color and contrast. I stitched around the edge and began building the center starting with a flocked transparency from Prima. I cut out part of the design and used it as a border on the side. I sprayed this with Walnut Gold GM. I cut off the edges of the cards and embossed with fine gold powder. I simply ran the Distress Emboss Ink pad along the edges, dredged in powder and heat set. Love the results!

I added Olive Vine GM to the De Vine Felt so that it sparkled too! And the small calling card is sprayed with a hefty dose of Crushed Shells GM. The Innoscence flowers were sprayed with Walnut Gold GM and so was my photo-just a light misting.

Here is a before and after photo of the background paper....

Some close-ups so you can see the embossed edges and other details......
I used Prima's velvet rose leaves, Caravan flowers, Fairytale roses and and Amaruse flower as well as bling swirls.

Love that calling card and the owl peeking out....

And this is a card I made using some of Prima's stamps. The stamps came from the Butterfly set. The sentiment is Hero Arts. I used Antique Brass over the whole face of the card. I LOVE how it looks on the chocolate cardstock--so rich! I hand cut some leaves from Prima packaging, E-Line pearls were added to the flower centers and a bit of storybook paper in the back.

Head on over to the Prima blog to see what some of the Design Team members did with Tattered Angels products.....

Of course, it's totally and utterly brilliant. Do you have hard time with the warped paper after glimmer misting it? How do you deal with that? I mean do you put the paper under heavy books etc to flatten it?
