A sparkly sunset
I decided to spend a few minutes doing a blog post as, apart from my scheduled DT posts, I haven't actually posted anything for ages.
Here is a card that I made a while back, having watched a Sheena Douglas show where she showed how to make a background with sparkle pens. So I decided to experiment a bit myself and made about 4 backgrounds using this technique.
Here is the result of one of them which I finished iff using a variety of Lavinia and Inkylicious stamps.
This version was on water colour card, which made the spreading of the sparkle pen a bit easier, but the down side was that the fairy stamp did not come out quite as solid as I would have liked. Also, the water colour paper curled and no amount of flattening under books etc would get it perfectly flat again, so it took a bit of effort to get it stuck down on the card!
None the less, it was a very fun and creative few hours for me, and I will definitely be doing this again.
Thanks for visiting today!
