Adding A Twinkle

Hi All,

Its time for a little Inspiration over at the STAMPlorations Blog. I decided to use one of their new sets called SMILE in combination with a sentiment from Lotus Love to create my DT piece .... a skinny one-layer card.

I started off by white embossing the lilies on my cream base card. Next I masked and sponged the partial oval using Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point inks before bleaching some of it from the flowers. I then used some Navajo Pearl Twinkling H2O to colour the lilies to make them look like floating above the card. I stamped my sentiment in Pacific Point and added some strategically placed sequins to finish.

After having been sitting in my cupboard for some time with only very occasional use, my Twinkling H2Os have finally come out to play. I rather like this effect and shall use it again. Here is a more close-up look ...

I am entering my card at:
Craft Stamper Make It Take It- Spring Flowers
One Layer Simplicity - As You Wish
CAS on Sunday - Flowers

For more inspiration, pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog to check out the creations my fabulous teamies came up with, Whilst there leave a comment for your entry to win a $10 gift certificate for their shop.

See you then.

Have a lovely day!
