Wisteria Glitter Card

Hi everyone, it has been a while since I posted anything here, I am afraid I have been frantically trying to catch up with Christmas preparations. At last my christmas tree is decorated and in place now, and all my cards have been posted, so I feel I can relax a bit now although I still have the food shopping to do of course.
So here is the other Sparkle Medium card I said I would show you. The Wisteria stencil is another one from Imagination Crafts, and this time I used a Sparkle Medium called Diamond Quartz, a lovely mix of silver and purple glitters. Again I used black card to work on because the glitter looks so good on it. When it was dry I trimmed it close to the image and mounted it onto a mat made from a snippet of silver flecked white card, and then onto a pale lilac pearl DL size base card. I finished it off with some organza ribbon tied with a knot.

Thank you for visiting today, and for your comments all of which are really appreciated.
I hope to be back with a couple more posts before the big day, but in the meantime I hope you can enjoy your preparations and find time to relax a bit too. To those of you who have been a bit poorly recently I hope you make a speedy recovery so you can enjoy the celebrations next

  3. This is just fabulous with all of the purple sparkle on the wisteria! I love that color and it looks so much nicer on black!! Beautifully done!

  4. This is gorgeous Jean and love that purple glittery finish which shows up so boldly against the black card. I must say in the Spring I love to see a wall or side of a house covered with Wisteria. x
