Twice in one day???
I'm on a roll today...how weird?
The top card is a full 8.5X11 piece of card stock folded in half..I used a Glimmer Screen to mask off the tree shape,sprayed it with Lettuce Colorwash and a light spritz of Clear gold Glimmer Mist and a bit of Goldleaf Marker that I "splatted"-yes that is a technical term which means I simply pumped the tip a few times to get it all juicy then whacked it across a paintbrush handle to make it splatter. The sentiment is old PSX stamp I found on Ebay...love it. Added some freshness with the Black and White patterned paper edge and punched butterflies.
The 2nd card uses Flower Soft-this stuff is so strange..look at the close up...little bits of shredded plastic I guess? But it's fun to work with-I used a stamp from Paper Inspirations,inked it up with Adirondack Current,Eggplant and Stream-spritzed it with water and stamped it three times. I used a Glue marker and dabbed it randomly around the flower and dumped some Flower Soft on it-tapped it down and shook off the excess(over scrap paper so i could dump it back in the jar). the sentiment is Stampendous.
