I decided to show you that they are not just for Christmas by creating a summery and very feminine card (you can click on the photos to see each of them in more detail).
It started with an Archival Reinker background using Cornflower Blue, a touch of Fern Green and some Surgical Spirits/Rubbing Alcohol on Specialty Stamping Paper. The great thing about these backgrounds is that no two are ever the same and they are quick to make.
Next, the stencilling. I wanted a contrasting pattern inside an oval so made my own stencil by using the largest of the Movers and Shapers oval dies through some of the acetate packaging. Using both parts I applied three flavours of Distress Ink and some Brushed Pewter Distress Paint through several Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi stencils.
Now for the Distress Glitter. I added Translucent Embossing Paste through the Vintage Floral stencil, then poured small amounts of glitter over the different areas with a little spoon. I mixed my own colour for the flowers using the Antique Linen and Victorian Velvet versions.
Once the paste had dried I ran a white gel pen around the internal stencilled lines of the flowers and larger leaves to add extra definition. The finishing touches included stamping the sentiment from the Heirloom Art stamp set, and flicking splatters of Brushed Pewter Distress Paint over the whole card.
Don't you just love the way the Translucent Paste grabs the Distress Glitter? And the great thing is it will work through any of your stencils. So if your stocks are running low or you only have those 'festive' shades why not add to your collection whilst the 15% Friday Focus discount applies. Find them now at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
Have a great, glittery weekend and take care of yourselves,
