Sparkle Medium cards

This batch of cards were done using Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium, in Aqua Sea. The birdcage stencil is another Dreamweaver stencil and is mounted onto a pearlescent blue card.  The background is a plastic mask by Imagination Crafts and I have used Dreamweaver matt white paste coloured with various Fresco Finish paints by Paper Artsy (my absolute favourite paints).  This was done by mixing a speck of paint with blobs  (technical term) of the paste and putting 3 or 4 colours onto the palette knife.  In this one the colours are not all that distinct as this was the end of a series of pasting and I was using up every last bit so they are rather blended together.   The sentiment is an old favorite of mine by Printworks and is silver embosssed onto a Spellbinders Stately Circle die.  I rubbed over the circle with a Brilliance Ink pad to match. The bird is an Inkadinkado stamp embossed in silver and the ribbon is rescued from gift packaging.

You can see the dimension a bit better in this one.

Disappointing photo of this one believe me it looks ok in real life!  Another Dreamweaver stencil and the Sparkle Medium as above.  Mounted onto miri and the background is a Spellbinders Embossabilities, Garden Lattice folder.  I used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to colour the background card first and after embossing rubbed Treasure Silver wax gilt on top.  The sentiment is a Sweet Poppy stencil done with the same Sparkle Medium.

This is yet another Dreamweaver stencil done with the Sparkle Medium.  The background is a Couture Creations embossing folder which I have carefully enlarged to make it into the A5 size.  I have rubbed it over with a Brilliance Ink pad and it has a lovely sheen.  The sentiment is same as card 1 above.  Nice satin ribbon to finish off.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and any comments very appreciated.
