Sweet Poppy Dotty Flowers 5 ways........

Good morning all,

I do hope that it is a good one for you. I am in sunny Spain at the moment on my hols :0), so this is a scheduled post from me! How is the weather back home?

Following on from my post HERE from last week on how the ladies made the class cards, one of which is below,  I wanted to show you how different you can make them look using the same
 Sweet Poppy Dotty Flower Stencil but different mediums. I adore this stencil as it is so dainty and pretty but because it is dainty, the stencil paste dries really quickly ( bonus!!)......

As you know if you read my post from last week the one below was created using:

 So now if you use the same ingredients..........
Crystal Glamour Dust

By die cutting or punching a circle out of a piece of white square card and using the same stencil to create a background on another piece of white card and popping it behind you can get a totally different look. I used the translucent paste through the Dotty flower stencil, once I had inked it and added the glamour dust and then when it was dry, I cut out the flowers with a white border around them and inked them on the edges. I just used four flowers and saved two for another project......

How different does that look?

Now for another look, if you follow the instructions from the first class card from last week HERE to create the flowers. Here is the list of ingredients for this one:

Ultrafine Gold Glitter
Black and Gold ribbon
Gold Mirri Card and Black Card

Just by edging the outside with Black Soot Distress Ink and adding a co-ordinating ribbon and matted card layers, I think it creates a real classy card.......

Try different colour glitters on different backgrounds. Here are a couple more to show you how different it can look. Here I have used:

Ultrafine Purple Glitter
Purple Ribbon with a Buckle
Purple Mirri Card and Black Card

And for this one I used:

Ultrafine Glitter in two blues and a green
Blue Mirri Card and Green Card

I did the same as the other two using Translucent paste this time and different glitters. I wanted a border across this one so decided to cut a strip of double side film and stick it across the card and then add some glitter to it, I think it works really well.......

Well, that is about all from me for now, I will be back next week with some more Sweet Poppy inspiration, using a lot of foiling this time in different ways.

Have a great week,
Big hugs Lisa B xx
