Where did the week go - I can't believe that January is nearly gone - for us that means school holidays are coming to an end - our kids are back to school on 7 February and NOT looking forward to it! I can't say I am either - I am loving the slower pace of life and not running to any timetables!! But one thing I am looking forward to is this weeks Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge!!!
I have used an image from "priscillastyles" Store - don't you just love this Raining Hearts image! I have coloured it with the fabulous shimmer products from our monthly sponsor Lindy's Stamp Gang.
I wanted to use the shimmer on the image but did not want to spray the whole thing so decided to use a paint brush and add it that way - the effect is fabulous and sadly is not captured well with the camera The trunk is painted with the Moon Shadow Mist in Buccaneer Bay Blue.
I used the Starburst Spray in Azure Sea Asters on the Scalloped Oval - I got a pleasant surprise to find that it had gold shimmer through it - you have to love that!! The whole card has a metallic look IRL and is very effective - I will definitley be using this technique again!
The Large Scalloped Oval and Classic Oval Nestibilities are cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur - I am really loving how easy it is to use - you get crisp cut lines every time!!
