A Stencil, Shimmer and Sheep.

Welcome

I had some very messy fun making this card.  



Starting with some water colour paper, I used modelling paste to stencil a base, (the stencil is from a now defunct company) then covered it with water based paint once it dried - then a layer of purple spray, followed by a silver glimmer mist...

Next I decided that this Bugaboo image would be my feature


I used minimal colours, then after colouring and adding some glitter to the balloons, I added some glossy accents to give them some dimension and sheen.


The final details were some clear rhinestones and some mauve ribbon across the bottom of the card.


I enjoyed making this card, and was happy with the result.

HI Maxine...Thanks for your recent comment on my newest card...Prayer is such a powerful thing! And when we pray in accordance to the Word and accompany it with action, nothing is impossible with God! Praying for your nation too. God bless always, my friend!

Oh so love this fun card. The background is just splendid! Love that stencil pattern, and the colors were so very pretty. The sequins looked great with the stencil pattern to add some nice glitz. Loved the cute image, and the glossy on the balloons was a wonderful detail as was the tiny spots of silver glitter for highlights. Just a really eye-catching card. Have a great wkend, and TFS. Hugs
