This card is a very quick and easy one, I want to use for a
CASology Challenge but not sure it's CAS enough. Hopefully it is.
I have actually spent the afternoon blending, watercolouring, Colour Bursting and have fingers that look the most amazing grunge blue/black after many washes. I couldn't use my right hand yesterday as it was so cold the pain was so intense I didn't dare open it. Learnt I could get by one handed very well, just not crafting. I am left handed as well so its not as bad as it could have been.
Still cold today but my tablets appear to be working better today.
Now onto my card.
I used a Stamplorations Stencil that I see being used quite often in blog land. Very pretty and easy to use. First I taped the stencil down and used Wilted Violet and Olive Green Distress Ink blended, doubled up in areas I wanted to look a bit darker.
I then added Glass bead embossing paste that dries clear so the blended colours showed through perfectly. It looks stunning, would be fantastic for snow look too. I got onto this after seeing Loll using it on her blog. I only did the flower heads.
I used quite thick cardstock to stop it warping and it dried perfectly. Added a die cut
'get well' and its finished. I'm happy with it and I hope the person getting it likes it as well.
Check out the sparkle from those glass beads and feels very rough which fits the challenge I made it for.
Both ways, feeling sick so
feeling rough and texture is rough.
Use Something Tactile
These glass beads are definitely Tactile.
