Pearlescent Sweet Poppy

Good morning, I hope everyone had a nice weekend, it was great to have some proper heat & sunshine. Today's projects are my final two for our Sweet Poppy month, I used the Fairy Pods & Tree of Hope stencils, along with Pearlescent Dimension Paste & Brusho crystals.

I created a simple background using the Doodle Squares stencil (back in stock soon) & various Distress inks, then mixed Turquoise Brusho with the Pearlescent paste & applied it through the Fairy Pods stencil. Finished the card with black card & matching Core'dinations card.............

I had some of the paste left over so I applied it though the 
Pronty Fishscale stencil onto black card & when it was dry, applied 
Glossy Black Dimension paste through the Tree of Hope stencil. I added a sentiment from the Stampendous Life Words stamp set & a length of ribbon & as before, matting & layering with black card & matching Core'dinations card..........

This coming Friday sees the Inka Gold workshop happening in Maidstone. For further information, see this blog post - I have added some additional information, so those who are already booked to attend might want to check it out too.
 There are a very few places left, so please contact Lisa - - if you're interested in attending. 

Saturday sees the end of the Sweet Poppy blog challenge. Entries have been surprisingly sparse, so we'd love to see a few more.

That is it from me for now, I hope to be back on Saturday with a review of Friday's workshop. Thanks for visiting the blog today & have a great week.



  1. Love how you combined these stencils, both gorgeous cards!

  2. This effect and the brushos mixed with the pearlescent paste is a fab idea and works so well xx
