Today I am showing you a card that I made a few weeks ago for one of sisters whose birthday was at the start of the month. The base card is a white 6" square with a pink mat cut slightly smaller.The top layer is made using white card again and a stencil from Imaginations Crafts. First I anchored the stencil down with masking tape, and then used more tape to cover all but the area I was working on. Using just one colour at a time the flowers leaves and stems were coloured with duster brushes and Distress Inks. I think the colours I used were spun sugar, peeled paint and probably vintage photo. I used a yellow pen for the flower centres. I then covered the flowers again and uncovered the butterflies and applied Imagination sparkle medium to them. This is one of the new ones that I bought at the NEC last month and is called Rose Shimmer, it is a pretty mixture of pink and gold. Next I removed the stencil and left the sparkle to dry completely, then I replaced the stencil and used the spun sugar ink to colour the centre square and then overstamped it with the birthday greeting. It was quite a job doing the multi coloured stencilling but I was quite pleased with the result.
