I must confess to a bit of a shopping spree at the craft day I went to on Saturday. I bought several colours each of Alchemy Waxes, Sparkle Medium and Starlight Paint, and a selection of stencils to use with them.
However for my first Sparkle Medium make, rather than a new stencil I used a very old brass one that I've hardly ever used. The sparkle is perfect for the dragonflies, and the lovely raised texture makes it look as if they are fluttering over the surface of the card.
A hint of colour from watercolour pencils and a simple stamped sentiment (one of the very first stamps I bought, around 20 years ago!) are all that it needed to finish the card without detracting from that sparkle. Have you noticed that nowadays I often make one layer cards from choice, rather than groaning when I see it as part of a challenge? Is it a sign that my CAS-ability is growing up?
I would like to share this with
Less is More - Use something tactile (that raised glitter surface is VERY tactile!)
Retro Rubber - Summertime - what could be more summery than dragonflies dancing over a lily pond in the morning sunshine?
