NBUS Hearts Anniversary

 Welcome

Life has thrown me a curve ball these past few days and I am not impressed.  This will be a quick post as I have limited time.


I started this card by dropping some Lindy's Stamp Gang powders onto my water colour paper, then sprayed them with water.


The mica in the powders, and then in the spray I used over them again, gave the background an amazing gleam IRL


After drying this panel, I then used Versamark ink and sponged it through a stencil before embossing it in silver EP


I stamped and silver embossed the sentiment - and using the MISTI meant that when the first try was not as good as I would have liked it, I could repeat and get  the required result.


I layered the initial panel over a cream one, added the silver and purple ribbons, tied a double bow and added it with a glue dot, then layered them all onto the purple base.

I am linking this to:
