You are so Special

Hi Bloggers.

Hope you enjoyed the One Day Special shows. They were great fun. I'm catching up on post, washing and if the weather is kind, I really need to cut the lawn!

Here's today's card - .
For the background, I dusted a piece of Coconut White Card. I stamped some of the flowers and element stamps from the Woodware Mosaic Flowers Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS True White Detail Embossing Powder. I folded it in several places to give a distressed look (you can skip this step if you prefer). I then misted with Phill Martin CS Vintage Blue Ink Spray Mist.

I added some of the Ink Spray Mist to a Water Brush and used it to add more colours to the stamped images. I matted onto Black Card and added to a Coconut White Card blank.

I built a sentiment from the stamps in the Woodware Celebrating You Stamp Set and stamped onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium. I embossed with CS True White Detail Powder and spritzed with Vintage Blue Ink Spray Mist. I matted onto Black Card and added to my background using CE Mounting Cushion.

I completed my card by adding a 5mm Black Pearl to the corners of my sentiment panel and a Small Black Circle Dazzler to the corners of my background.

Thanks for stopping by.

  19. Lovely card Julia. Love this shade of blue. Brilliant shows yesterday full of tips. Xx

  20. Julis this is so pretty, i love the colours and the effect from the misting.
    I would worry about me doing the folding bit though.
    I would worry that the recipient would think i had sent them a crumpled up card lol.
    It does look good on your card.

  21. Lovely card Julia. Enjoyed all the shows. Only had to watch one of Rewind. They were all good. Thank you.
