Spritzed Ferns with Dragonfly

Just popping in to show you a card I made recently.

The CAS Mix Up August Challenge inspired me to shake up my neglected spritz bottles. I picked a beautiful, shimmery green from LuminArte but after a test spritz it didn't work any more. The same has happened with my gold from the same brand that I now use only to splatter with a brush. Since several bloggers mentioned that they had good luck with the mini mister from Ranger and I had one, I poured some green into it,  and grabbed my fern stencil.

A close up to show you the shimmer

Stamp: Penny Black (script)
Other: Fern Stencil (TCW), Spritz bottles (LuminArte), Dragonfly (punch)

Afterwards I sponged the panel with Antique Linen DI, stamped it partly with a script stamp, splattered some gold on it, ran a brush dipped in the gold along the edges, and attached a dragonfly punched from some shimmery, textured paper. I backed it with some foam and attached it to a white card. I decided against a sentiment.

ETA: This card was voted Outstanding Design!

It felt so wonderful to finally take some time to play again!

Be well,

Purple and Green Flowery Birthday

Sorry that I am still not back to more regular posting (if there ever was such a thing on this blog) but it's still summer and there is still lots going on. I'll do the best I can and appreciate your visits and kind comments more than ever.

The 7 Cardologists celebrated another birthday! This time it was for the girl who moved away last year but is back right now for a visit! How wonderful it was to be all together again!

She loves purple so that made the color choice easy. The oval with the sentiment matches the flowers in real live much better. And the layer is not black as it looks on screen but dark purple. There is Wink of Stella on the flowers but that's, of course, not visible on the photo.

Stamps: Uniko (Beautiful blooms III), Happy Little Stampers (sentiment)
