Good morning crafters, Julie here, I hope I find you well.
Today's post is a card using Americana Chalk Finish paint, Imagination Crafts' rice paper 010 and the gorgeous Starlights metallic paints.
Using a 7x7 card blank I painted round the edges using Pink Sunset Starlight paint - I was lazy and used some scrap paper so I didn't have to clean my mat!
Then I cut some super smooth card to 160mm square and painted this with timeless (beige) Americana Decor Chalk Finish paint. When this was dry I then randomly stamped the Imagination Crafts Script Art Stamp using Versamark ink and WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder which I heat set.
I then chose the black and white butterflies rice paper design 010 and painted around the piece I wanted with water and tore it out. I then broke this down a bit more so I had more torn pieces which I arranged on the card to make sure the layout worked, before gluing them down using Magi-Bond glue.
Whilst this was drying I cut a 165mm square piece of black card ready for matting which would pick out the black text and butterfly I'd just glued on.
I then set about painting the large rice paper butterfly with the Starlight paints, the colours I chose were Pink Sunset, Jade, Lilac Mist and Silver Gold.
Once the Starlights were dry I layered my project onto the black card and then stuck this onto the Starlight edged card blank ( a tip I learnt whilst doing this, is double sided tape sticks initially to Starlights but will peel away in places, therefore I re-stuck this using Cosmic Shimmer glue ).
I then finished the project with some Hobby House pearly gems sparkle flowers in the corners bought from class by the metre.
I hope you liked my post today, enjoy the rest of your day.
Love Julie x
