I mixed copper metallic pan pastel with Maimeri matt gel and used this through several different stencils. A quick way to create raised, shimmery coloured areas. These papers became my backgrounds for the other elements.
On several of the papers, there were floral and butterfly elements which I have cut out and layering on top of my background. I have added coloured highlights using the copper pan pastel. The leaves were coloured with a mixture of permanent green and copper pan pastel.
The sentiment is an all time favourite of mine and is from a retired Studio 12 stamp set (designed by Nikky Hall). I added some lace, ribbon, a bit of "pearl bling" and Nuvo crystal drops as my finishing touches. Finished card is in the photo below ...
I used a similar layout and range of embellishments for my box lid. I really need to do this with more of my precious scraps rather than keeping them safe in a box ....... to be forgotten!
Am in shock that the weekend is almost over as not sure how the time went so ridiculously quickly. Well better pull my socks up and get prepping for "Art and Craft Club" at school tomorrow evening. Would be so much easier if I could decide on what to make ... so many ideas but I do need to narrow them down and just choose one!
Have a great day everyone,
