Gosh! Wednesday already!! How did that happen? Happy Hump Day Everyone.
Today I thought I would share a card I made for a friend of mine last week. It seems very apt colourwise for the Autumn kinda day we are having today. Lesley is a fan of oranges and yellows hence the colourway.
It was made using a Sweet Poppy stencil, first colouring it with DIs then removing the stencil to dry the inks before repositioning it carefully and using clear paste as you normally do.
Once you have lifted the stencil VERY carefully, without dropping or smudging it and carefully placing it into a handy bowl of water, get your clear fine microbeads and pour them over. These microbeads are
swines terrible for getting everywhere! I mean everywhere. Leave to dry overnight WITHOUT picking at it to see if they are dry yet.
But the effect is awesome! Especially in the sunshine. Top tip - do all your edges etc before you attach the beads cos the little
blighters beads get in your punches!
The finishing touches were added, a strip of Snippet card punched with EK Success punch, another piece layered on top. Punched butterflies - again using Snippets, and some fluff. The Friends sentiment was kindly sent to me some time ago. Voila - pwetty card finished and Lesley LOVES it!
Thanks for calling by. Isn't it nice to see the little kiddiewinks going back to school!! Though I wish more peeps would walk their kids to school to prevent the queues!
