Ally Pally Day 2

Hi Bloggers.

It's Day 2 at Ally Pally. Be sure to pop by the Creative Expressions stand if you're visiting today.

Here's today's card -

I cut die #2 from Sue Wilson's Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B out of Coconut White Card. I dusted with an Anti-Static Bag and stamped the top section of the Woodware Bubble Bloom : Lynell Stamp around the edges using Clear Perfect Medium. I added CS White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. I a separate piece of card, I stamped the sentiment that comes with the stamp, again using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder.

I misted both pieces of card with water and added a little CS Straw Yellow Pixie Powder. I used a Large Water Brush to move the colour around, trying not give an even coverage. Once dry, I removed some of the colour from the leaves by using a Water Brush and blotting with Kitchen Roll. I added Quickie Glue Pen to all of the circles in the design. Once the glue was clear, I added CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost.

I cut the #3 die from Sue's Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B out of Coconut White Card and popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I trimmed the sentiment and added to a piece of Coconut White Card.I added it to the centre of my card using Creative Expressions Mounting Cushion.

I completed my card by adding a 5mm White Pearl to the corners.

Thanks for stopping by.
