Dreamweaver Peacock feather stencil, Imagination Crafts Sparkle medium and Distress inks.

Hi again,

I've got a bit of making up to do, blog wise, so here's another post.

This was one of the only projects I made on my lovely holiday, as the weather was too good not to enjoy the seaside, lol.

It is an 8"x 8" Birthday card.

For the main image I used a fab Dreamweaver metal stencil. 
(which I found in a sort craft shop in Poole, it sold loads of other stuff too, I could have stayed in there for ages, in fact I think I did, lol )
 I daubed some gorgeous sparkle medium, made by Imagination Crafts, in two colours, through the stencil with a plastic knife, ( all mod cons eh !!!) 

The background was the same stencil, only I dabbed Distress inks through it, again in two colours.
 As I hadn't taken any coloured card with me on my holibobs, I again used Distress inks, but built up the colour gradually, around the edges of some white card, which I cut to size before starting, to give the impression of block coloured card. I then layered the feather image and the sentiment on top of it.

A very simple but effective card, I hope you'll agree, the sparkle medium really gives it a punch of bling.

Thanks for visiting, I do appreciate it, 
and please leave me a comment if you have the time.
See you soon,
