Fairy Dust and Dragonfly

Hello! Today I am sharing a card that I created using Fairy Dust Sparkle Blends. I decided to not go with a shaker card this time around, but to rather just apply the beautiful, opalescent sequins directly to my card front.

I thought that this particular Sparkle Blend would work really well with the Dragonfly Lily stamp from Stampendous. I decided to use the Spotlight Technique for coloring this stamp, so that there would be some focus exactly where I want it, but the Sparkle Blends would shine and be the focus elsewhere on the card. The image was colored with Tombow Dual Brush markers. Then I die cut it with a Fitted Frame from Stampendous. 

I applied the sequins I liked for this card with Imagine's On Point Glue. It holds the sequins so well. I decided to do a bit more to my card base, so I inked the edges with Opera Pink VersaColor Ink and then applied 2 layers of Stampendous' Chunky Clear Embossing Powder. I purposefully didn't got for a smooth texture with the melted powder. Instead, I wanted it to look like water droplets. 

There's something I really love about doing the Spotlight Technique. And I really love how the Fairy Dust Sparkle Blend makes the image seem magical. I can't wait to show you more with the Sparkle Blends! Remember, you can only get them at White Rose Crafts LLC, and each blend is a Limited Edition. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
