A Friend is like a Rainbow

Hi Bloggers.

I'm demoing at Strikes Garden Centre, Ladygreen, Ince Blundell today 10 till 4. If you're in the area, please stop by.

Here's today's card -

I started by spreading some Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Decadent Teal and Decadent Denim Sparkle Texture Paste through the Wavy Mask onto Coconut White Card and put aside to dry. Once dry, I cut a frame using 2 dies from the Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A Die Set. I cut the largest die in the same die set out of Teal Card. I also cut the largest die in the Spellbinders Blooming Collection Die Set out of Teal Card.

I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Fine Finials Embossing Folder and popped the frame upon it.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Amazing Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Cobalt Archival. I cut it out using a die from the Spellbinders Captivating Squares Die Set and inked through the die with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink using a Smoothie. I cut the middle sized die from the Spellbinders Floral Assortment Die Set out of Teal Card.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges.

Just an early heads up - I will heading down south for a Crafty Weekend at Craftasmic in Taunton on the the 26th & 27th September. I've been there a few times now. Last year I went down there with Sue Wilson. This year, I'm taking John Lockwood with me. It's always a brilliant weekend. Click HERE to see the details

Thanks for stopping by.

    A beautiful card, I love the colours and the way that you have used the two colours of texture paste. The colours remind me of peacock feathers. I also like the way that you have made the frames, I must get the other set of basic squares. All the best for today.
