Finishing Touch

Simon Says Finishing Touch. I used Simply Chartreuse cardstock (Papertrey Ink), some gold acrylic craft paint. Applied Wild Honey Distress Stain through Tim Holtz'  Dot Fade Stencil. The stamps are from Club Scrap's Solstice kit.

This is an interactive piece for someone going through chemo. The iron filings are in an Impression Obsession Shake It Square Pouch. It makes the lightest weight iron filing card I've made so far. Place the pouch face down, add some iron filings, remove the adhesive cover, add a solid line of glossy accents. Put a light weight on the back cover and wait until it has dried (I learned this the hard way). If you have spilled any iron filings wrap a magnet in a coffee filter and then pick up all the iron filings. Open the iron filings container hold the coffee filter over it, and remove the magnet. The iron filings drop effortlessly into the container. Much much easier then trying to remove the iron filings from the magnet. Trust me. I learned this the hard way too.

I used 2.5" square die from Spellbinders to cut the opening for the pouch. It's a snug fit, but can be opened a little more if desired with the edge of a scissor. Run a line of Glossy Accents around the edge of the Shake-It Pouch and put the cover over it, running a finger around the edge of the opening.

I stamped the Solstice image again on a scrap of cardstock and used glossy accents to attach it to the top of a very strong magnet (the weak magnets barely move the iron filings. After it dries I cut off the excess cardstock. Be prepared for your scissors to stick to the magnet while you cut lol.
