A very Special Occasion a project by Astrid

Hello all and welcome to the blog today. I have a card to share with you today, made for a very special occasion. You can read about it all HERE, and I really hope you will!!!

Anyway, here is my card.
Recently I had the idea to try and see whether Shimmerz paints would work on a Gelli plate, and I am very happy to say they do!! The background to this card was created on a the small 6 x 6 Geli plate.
I started by brayering some Teal Me No Lies Texturez and then I mixed in some Dazzler in Spun Sugar.
I pulled my print and the result was a beautifully textured shimmering blue. I lay a Prima stencil over the top and gave it a couple of sprays of Vibez Don't Rain on My Parade and voila the result was the background above.
I cut a tag from a piece of Pion paper, Inked around the edges with some Distress Inks, gave a a few spritzes of Spritz in Rock-a -Fella Blue for some subtle shimmer, stamped my dandylions and then put it all together on my card. Below are a few close ups still.

Sentiment stamped, fussy cut and adhered with foam tape.

Butterfly stamped in Hydrangea Archival and coloured with the Rock-a-Fella Spritz.
Well, that's it for today. I hope you will check out the link at the top to see who the card is for, and it would be awesome if you made a card for this girl too.

Thanks for your visit like always
