Goddess in Training Slide Mailer

For those of you who have not heard the news, I am a member of Repeat Impressions Design Team. I am so honored to be able to design for this company. I met the owners a number of years ago at a Convention in Georgia. And they are a delightful couple. The company is small and based in Maine but you would never know it from the fabulous quality of their items. Please take a moment to check them out.

Okay onto what I have created. The first piece that I have made is a slide mailer. I started by coating the mailer with a thin layer of gesso. Next I sprayed it with a green Glimmer mist and Walnut ink. Let that dry (but not all the way) and then sponged off the excess with a paper towel.

On the front I stamped 4314-K, Flowering Vine colored it with markers and then added diamond glaze. Lastly I gold embossed around the edges.

On the inside Left side I started by stamping 3417-C, Random Stars with Jungle green ink and then stamped the phrase 7032-D, Goddess in dark brown ink. To finish it off I cut out a few of the flowers from the flowering vine and added them.

To create the insert for the right hand inside panel I first traced the shape on a cardboard colored cardstock and then stamped 7107-G, Goddess Post two times, one right side up and the other upside down, masking as needed, with brown ink. I colored the image with colored pencils and mounted inside the insert.

To finish off the inside I added gold embossing powder all around the edges. And lastly I attached the beads to the back of the slide mailer.
