Here's today's card -
For the background, I used one of the techniques from my first demo on Sunday. I stamped the Justrite Rose Garden Background using Perfect Medium. I then dusted some Angel Blue Sparkle and Iced Blue Sparkle from the Cosmic Shimmer Lovely Lights Sparkle Pigments Set all over. I removed the excess with a dry wetwipe. It's not necessary to set these powders as they have a binding agent in them. However, you can spritz with a little water and dry if you wish. I love these sparkle pigments. They have larger particles than those in normal mica powder which is why you don't get a spritzer bottle in the set - the nozzle would get glogged. You don't get a brush either, but most of you probably have one anyway. You do get 8 little pots though - 2 more than in a Mica Spray Set.
I ran the bottom section of the background through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Large Joe's Garden Embossing Folder. I hid the join by wrapping a piece of White Satin Organza around ( the satin edge is over the join). I made some some flowers out of Duck Egg Blue Card and White Felt from the Vintage Felt Pack using the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Juliet Die Set.
I popped the sentiment into the gap in the frame from the Justrite Vintage Oval Labels Stamp Set and stamped using Jet Black Archival, embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 6 and inked though the die with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I coloured the image in using Tumbled Glass Distress Marker, Pastel Blue from the Cosmic Shimmer Pastels Watercolour Set and Marine Sea from the Cosmic Shimmer Luscious Greens Watercolour Set. I added just a little Ice Blue Stickles to the ends of the seed heads. I cut a larger Spellbinders Labels 6 out of Duck Egg Blue Card.
I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Crystal Sparkle PVA around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
