Giggling Girls

Welcome

Thank you for calling back to visit.

I made this card for a commission, and the customer wanted names on the cards I was making. this card is for a 15 yr old girl.


I started by trying out my brushos again, and this time I loved the results I got.  I also sprinkled on some silver embossing powder before the watercolour paper was dry, and heated it to make the powder melt - it gives a gorgeous effect once it is all dry.


I have a new Alpha set from Couture Creations that gives both upper and lower case letters, so I cut the name of the recipient out of a glitter card, and mounted it over the base, using washi tape to give me a straight line to place the letters on.


The greeting is a digi from Beccy's Place  - I am not sure if it was a freebie, or in a set that has been discontinued, but I cannot find it on the site.  I die cut it with a S/B label, sponged it with pale blue ink and sprayed it with  silver shimmer spray.  The brads were silver, so I coated them with Versamark ink and dipped them into blue embossing powder and heated them.  I love colouring them that way.


The silhouette is also a digi from Beccy's Place from a set called Splish Splash and again it is the first time I have used it - I sized it to suit the card, printed it and then fussy cut it.  It reminds me of a group of young teens, reluctant to part, and giggling together as only they can do.

The card was finished by mounting the panel over a panel of the blues glitter card, and then an aqua toned base.  The customer loved the card.

What a fabulously colourful card Maxine, and so shimmery too! I love the effect you created on the card base, the silver embossing powder was a great addition as was the blue glitter paper. I like the way you coloured the brads to match with all your other elements. I'm sure your creation will be very well received. Great job!
Cheers,
Beccy

What a fabulous idea to sprinkle some silver embossing powder on - never tried anything like that so that is a must. Love the colour of Brusho's you used - very effective and so feminine too.
Hugs, Neet xx
