So many times I find myself writing in comments on others' cards saying, "I love the sparkle!" but I either forget or choose to not make the mess using glitter myself. However, I've decided to change that, and add the "sparkle" that I do really like. So, here is another one. It is done for this week's color challenge on SplitCoastStampers, which is Ballet Blue, Barely Banana and Old Olive.
This card is done differently than those from yesterday. I started with a daisy stencil by Dreamweavers. I taped it to the Ballet Blue cardstock with removable tape. Then I stippled Versamagic Spanish Olive, PTI Fresh Snow and Color Box Canary pigment inks through the stencil. (I generally use dye ink, but I thought the pigment ink would cover the blue better.) I added the embossing paste, carefully removed the tape and the stencil, and then added the glitter. After it had dried, I didn't think the color was intense enough, so I put the stencil back over the paste and stippled on a little bit of Old Olive and Barely Banana ink. The Barely Banana strip was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and my Scor-Pal. The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions and is stamped with Old Olive ink. I added a little bit of Stickles to the centers of the embossed flowers. (If you are interested in this technique, I have a friend who sells the necessary supplies. She also sells what you need for yesterday's cards, and just about anything else you might be interested in! Here is a link to her blog: Heartwarmers From Vicki. Tell her "Lynette sent you!" LOL!)
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
