Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I popped the All Stirred Up Mask onto a piece of Watercolour Card. I then sprinkled some Golden Mint and Purple Violet CS Pixie Powders over. I left the mask in place and then misted with water. I removed the mask and put the background aside to dry. The Pixie Powders do come off the mask really easily just by running them under a cold tap or popping them in a bowl of water.

I made my usual frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares and Double Pierced Squares Set B. I stamped the corner stamp from the Justrite Congrats Card Basics Stamp Set in all 4 corners of my frame using Jet Black Archival. I added my frame to my background once it was dry using 3d Foam Tape.

I stamped the sentiment and then the frame around it (both from the Congrats Card Basics Stamp Set) onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival.I cut it out using Justrite A2 Card Front Basics Dies and also a mat out of Black Card using the same set.

I spritzed a piece of Coconut White Card with water and tapped some Golden Mint and Purple Violet Pixie Powders over. Once dry, I used this to make some flowers with Sue Wilson's Exquisite Poppy Die Set. I cut some leaves out of Black Card using Sue's Olive Branch Die Set.

Thanks for stopping by.
