Sprays, a Mask and a Flower

 Welcome

I would like to welcome a new follower, Dangina Martinez.  She is a wonderful card maker, and I encourage you to pop over to her blog to look at her wonderful work.

I got out to the studio today and had some time to play :-) - time is in fairly short supply at the moment with our enlarged family!!


I started by applying a mask to the card and sprayed it with red pepper and gold shimmer spray to form a centre panel.


I cut out a spiral flower from a dictionary page with a spellbinders die, and coloured it with distress inks before shaping it, and then touching it with some gold paste.  I am really enjoying using these pastes.


 I had demolished another project recently, and used the flourishes from that for this card, They had been embossed with TH Green Crackle Embossing.

I used my trusty Kiwistamping stamp for the gold embossed sentiment.

Great job on the inking on this card...I also love the flower. We're delighted that you joined our Challenge last week at Word Art Wednesday. We hope to see you again this week. Leaving you with God's Word in Hebrews 12:2, "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Have a blessed day.
