Anyway I made a very simple card yesterday (to stop me thinking about today's pending visit to the D) for the Card Makin Mamas Challenge on Hearts - http://cardmakinmamas.blogspot.co.uk/. I wanted to enter this one because I found this particular 'topper' in my bits and pieces box last week. It was a stencil that I dabbed some glue through then when it was nicely tacky I popped some of the gilding flakes from Crafty Notions on top. I don't remember the name of the stencil maker or the glue unfortunately. I loved the effect but didn't do anything with it at the time.
Anyway I toddled orf to bed on Tuesday night and was thinking about the design, as you do, and lo and behold this is exactly what came into my head - no changing my mind at all!!! There are three pics because it is difficult to see the shimmery bits in a photograph!
The red in bottom lefthand corner of the pic above is the nearest I can see to the actual colour of the satin mirri card.
I spritzed the front of a 6x6 black card with Crafty Notions Gold Shake n Spray and Cherrylicious Shake n Spray (I have had these for ages) then gave it a quick blast with my heat gun. I then cut two mats from bright red satin mirri card and one from black card. I put everything together as in the pic and added my flowers.
I hope you like this one and thank you so much for stopping by today. Please let me know what you think of my design.
Hugs to you all.
