Sweet Agapanthus

Hi crafters, wow how quickly these Fridays come around :o)

I hope all those that managed to get to the workshop last Friday enjoyed it, I certainly like using the pastes through the Sweet Poppy stencils.

Here's one of my projects that was at the class last week.  

I started with a 7 x 7 card and matted and layered it with black card stock then white, which I left plain so I could stamp an image to the right.

I positioned the Sweet Poppy Agapanthus Stencil on some black card stock  using the Stencil tape then used the white Soft Form Relief Paste to spread over.  Once the stencil was removed I used a cut down straw chiselled to a point to carefully lay the glitter over the wet paste.  Glamour Dust Crystal for the flower heads and a pretty dark green for the stems.  Set that aside to dry 

I thought a dandelion stamp would complement the stencil so whilst that was drying I stamped the Lavinia Dandelion stamp (currently out of stock on the website, however Dandelions 2 is available and would look just as good) using Memento ink and quickly dried it using a heat gun.  Then stamped the little butterflies from the Floral Collage Clematis Range a couple of times.  At this point I didn't have the little Happy Birthday sentiment on the card just above the butterflies and forgot to photograph it before I took it to the workshop so I hope you saw it there.

Here are the elements:

So once everything was dry I put all the mats together and added one of my favourite little bows by Sue Wilson and a few gems in the corners and on the bow.  Again not in photo sorry.
Here's a cheeky photo of a little card I made for my Spanish Brother-In-Law using the Imagination Craft Wall Stencil and Black Soot for the background.  Then used the Black Sweet Poppy Dimensions Paste through a very old metal stencil of horses I have in my stash, and brightened it up with a bit of black glitter.  On reflection I wished I centred his name at the bottom of the card.
Thanks for dropping by the blog today.
Love Jan -x-
