All that shimmers!

Today I am sharing a card and small canvas that I made for a dear friend who celebrated her birthday on Friday.
As you have probably guessed by now I love using the black and gilding wax technique so I used it for both the card and canvas, well why not? It's fun!

I used the same gilding waxes on both the card and canvas. Creative Expressions Deep Red and Graceful Blue along with Viva Inka Gold.

For the card I used Cosmic Shimmer Gold Pearl Texture Paste through the Fantasy Willow Sweet Poppy stencil onto black card which I edged using a Krylon gold pen. The background was created using Sue Wilson's Pinpoint embossing folding and gilding wax.  Shame the lovely shimmer doesn't show as well on the photos as in real life.

Bye for now

Nice cuppa

We had a most enjoyable time last week.
Started on the Saturday with a brilliant workshop by Andy Coates at Sunrise Crafts. We made a fabulous teacup canvas which I love.
Then it was off to Hornchurch on Sunday for a lovely famly meal to celebrate my Sister in laws 75th birthday. We then moved on to Sudbury where we stayed for a few days with John's brother and his wife at their lovely bungalow and beautiful garden. It was very enjoyable.

Here is a card I created using the shaving foam and spray paint background and Sweet poppy Dragon stencil with and glitter paste. Using the stencil with this background gives the look of a sea horse I think.

Thanks for stopping by.

All about him

Todays card is one I made for my SIL's birthday last month.
As you can see from the photo it was a Special birthday.
I used Serif Craft Artist professional 2 and a Gracie Tracy digi kit All about him, which I love and obviously great for men's cards.

Hope you like it as much as I do.
Thanks for looking
