For the Guys.

My background is the galaxy technique. I started with Altenew Inks Maple Yellow, Lagoon, Deep Iris, then added Eastern Sky Ultramarine and Azurite. Then I covered the card with white and gold splatters. This covered the whole sky then I used the Mountain Scene Stencil. Happy Accidents happen and I love this one. Following the guidelines I put the mountains in the wrong spot, then the trees were not what I expected and I placed them in the wrong spot over the mountains, finally figured out what I was doing wrong but like how everything turned out. It is one of my husbands favourite cards. The mountains were done in black and the trees in Evergreen. A few stars and my card is finished.

Hai Rose Gold Sequins.

You make me HAPPY

This is a card for the guys, something that speaks to them.

For the background I used Altenew’s Pattern Play Diamond set, inked it with Versa Mark, then used Wow Blue Moon embossing powder. After that I painted the individual diamonds with Watercolor Brush Markers from Altenew’s Spring Garden, Dusk, Sea Breeze, and Emerald. I was not completely happy with the outcome so did a watered down Emerald colour wash over the whole card, this Brought the colours together with each colour still showing through. Next I followed a Jennifer McQuire tip for controlling height and cut our two Twigtastic Die from white card stock and one from Silver paper, glued them together and placed on the card. My sentiment is from Stampendous, which I fussy cut. I finished this card off with Studio Katia Midnight Blue Crystals.
