This is so pretty Viv, another stunner! Absolutely worth the effort as it looks amazing with the lovely colours and the silver and sparkle. Well done on your piglet rescue! My heart hurts I think how short his or her happy ending will be, but at least for today there was friendly hands to help out. Good for you xx
What a terrific card! Can't go wrong with that shimmer! Thanks for sharing at Less is More!
GORGEOUS effects you have made, love the silver in it, so VERY pretty.I'm glad someone rescued what must have been one frightened piglet, and for him to go sleep being cuddled Aw!Faithx
So good that you caught the little piglet! That must have been a super adventure fot it! Love the way you let the colours come back in the butterfly! Again a beautiful grungy background! Hugs, Gerrina
So good to hear that the piglet had a safe trip home Viv!Fabulous card :)Love and hugsMaarit
This is so gorgeous Viv...... I tried to follow your instructions but failed miserably!! I'd love to know more on how you did it and what a TCW stencil is! (ok I understand what a STENCIL is, just the TCW bit I'm struggling with!)And well done you on saving that poor little piglet's life!!Big hugsChristine x
Thanks Christine.....I used some embossing type paste over the stencil (says TCW Thecraftyworkshop.com RP Ronda Palazzari Designs 6x6 stencil)...(it has 8 little stencils on it),removed stencil, then dropped a few colours of ink over it. I sprayed the silver over the rest of the card. I stamped the butterfly added ink and cut it out and added to card. I added a stamped sentiment and sequins and job done!HTH if not ask away ;) xx
Thanks for that fab info Viv... soooooo... and sorry if I'm being thick.... is the stencil of hydrangeas?? That's what I see and they look wonderful... but I'm thinking that maybe that's not what the stencil is.. like one of those magic eye things though, once you 'see' something it's hard to unsee!! LOL! Anyway, whatever it is....... I really love it and NEED to try this technique! x
The stencil is like a honeycomb shape with ragged edges. The ink effect I used probably confused you lol 😀 Viv xx
Sounds like quite a complicated process Viv, but the result is absolutely gorgeous!Thanks again.Chrissie"Less is More"
