Hi There

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I spritzed a piece of Watercolour Card with Bronze Blush and Golden Mint CS Pixie Powders and put aside to dry.

Once dry, I stamped the Justrite Text Background using Sepia Archival.

I popped some CS Flake & Glitter Glue onto a piece of Wax Paper. I picked it up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and used it to ink up one of the stamps from the Justrite Floral Silhouettes One Stamp Set. I stamped it onto my background leaving the stamp on the card no more than 3 seconds so as not to tear the card. I cleaned my stamp under a cold tap. I repeated the process with another stamp from the set. I added CS Harvest Moon Gilding Flakes. I removed the excess using a piece of Rubit Scrubit.

I stamped some more flowers using Jet Black Archival and also some butterflies from the same set.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Meadow Circles Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival onto a spare piece of card coloured with the same Pixie Powders as before. I cut it out using a die from the Justrite Four in a Square Die Set and cut a mat out of Black Card using a die from Sue Wilson's Melbourne Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.  

Thanks for stopping by.
