Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I added Distress Crayons from Set 4 to a piece of Watercolour Card. I misted some water onto my Craft Sheet and used my finger to spread the crayon smoothly across the card. I placed the Gone to Pieces Mask on top and used a cheap wet wipe to remove the colour from the areas exposed through the mask.

I made sure the area was completely dry and dusted with an Anti-Static Bag. I stamped the Woodware Bubble Bloom : Lynell uisng Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder.

I painted the leaves with Spearmint CS Pixie Powder, the largest circle in the flowers with Teal Wash Pixie Powder, the medium circles in the flowers with Straw Yellow Pixie Powder and the smallest circles in the flowers with Aubergine Dream Pixie Powder.

I added Quickie Glue to the large circles in the flowers and once clear added CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost.

I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Scalloped Lattice Frames and added it to my image using 3D Foam Tape. I added an 8mm White Pearl to each corner and popped onto a Coconut White Card mat.

Thanks for stopping by.
