 I used a lovely Starlight 6x6 Stencil, this will definitely be getting lots of use, I love the design of this stencil :-)

My daughter lives in Poland, as I am sure you already knew, and she has a cat called Tigger who she misses terribly so I made this card for her. Inside I simply stamped a Tigger paw print which I forgot to photograph, but I know she will love it. 




I inked a panel of watercolor paper with Stormy Sky, Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord Inks and then splattered with water, white and black inks. When it was dry I used  the stencil with White Embossing Paste and a sprinkling of Prisma Glitter to create the starry sky. 

I used an Oval Frame Die which is currently out of stock, but this Fleur De Elegance Die Set   is very similar, to make a mirror. I inked the oval mirror with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and then brushed Perfect Pearls over the top to create a silvery mirror effect. 


So now it's YOUR turn to get out your stencils and join in the fun!

As soon as I saw these gorgeous Prima Flowers Birdcages I had to have one! I started by adhering a piece of Melange Tissue Wrap to the back panel and then inked with Pumice Stone and Tumbled Glass Inks.


 I then sprayed with Sparkle Shimmer before using a Bubble Stencil and White Embossing Paste down one side. While it was still wet I gave it a liberal sprinkling with Pumice Stone Distress Glitter.



 I die cut a butterfly and embossed before adding Prisma Glitter, which is super sparkly. I made a mirror using my Silhouette Cameo and then glued everything in place. 


I sprayed the Penmanship Flowers with Pumice Stone Spray and Sparkle Shimmer and then used a Glue Gun to position them. 


I really love how this has turned out!


and now for a Birds Eye View ;-)
