Glitter, Kraft and Blue

Howdy fellow Power Poppy lovers!  TGIF!  Welcome to another Peep of the Week special!

I kind of slacked off this week and left my creating until the very last possible minute.  You know when you have a vision in your head of what you wish your card to look like…. well, needless to say, this wasn’t quite what I had envisioned in my head!  LOL!

I started off by spritzing my light kraft cardstock with some cool “Cornflower” Walnut Ink antiquing Solution and “Sparkle” Sheer Shimmer Spritz by Imagine Crafts.  Then I began to stamp my individual flower stems from “Countryside Bouquet Deluxe” using Memento “Nautical Blue” ink.  Then I masked off the stems and stamped off using the same colour of ink the large feather from the “Marcella’s Mixtape” stamp set.

The beautiful round greeting is from the “Azalea” stamp set and the “For You” & ‘Dear Friend” sentiments are from the “Geraniums Take Two” stamp set.  I added some Kaleidoscope embossing powder on these to add some more shimmer and shine!

I kinda took inspiration this week from the latest and greatest sketch from the CAS(E) this Sketch! blog, CTS #90.

Now take a stroll and visit my fellow Bloom Brigaders with me and see what these amazingly talented ladies have come up with this week for you to check out!

I really like how you used the feathers to almost fill in the design with the elements of Countryside really looks like it all belongs together! Great effect Ally!

Well, I must say, even if this isn't what you had in your head, it looks pretty darn awesome on paper! That is so COOL how you used the feathers! The blue, the sketch, the pretty embossing powder -- all totally fabulous!

Sometime our creations take on a life of their own, and when they do, they often sing!! This card is just singin' away Ally!! Love the cool effect you achieved with the spritzing! Gorgeous!
