Lilac Lustre Filly

Greetings! Today I am sharing a card that features the gorgeous Lilac Lustre Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground. The opalescence and holographic qualities of this blend is amazing. You don't need to use a lot to get a ton of shine and beauty. 



 Some time ago, I had made a bunch of backgrounds with Distress Oxides. I was just having so much fun playing with them, that I just played with the inks for a while, just covering sheets of cardstock to use at a later date. This is one of the backgrounds I had made. To be honest, I don't recall all of the Distress Oxides that are on this, but there is certainly Wilted Violet and Antique Linen. There's a blue shade too....I think it's Faded Jeans. Anyway, I go through these backgrounds from time to time to see what I am inspired to work with and this one screamed Lilac Lustre to me.

I went through my stamps, knowing I didn't want something too thick and heavy that would cover up the background, and I came across Stampendous' Filly Sketch stamp. It was just what I needed. Light, airy, and a little messy. I stamped the filly on with VersaFine ink in Onyx Black. Then I added the sequins with On Point Glue. My card base is gray, and I used a metallic marker from Spectrum Noir around the edge to tie in the lustre of the sequins.

That's it for me today. I'll have a really fun shaker to share with you soon. I can't wait for you to see it. Don't forget that all Sparkle Blends are limited edition, and are only available from White Rose Crafts LLC. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
