Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Awesomely Artistic with a Wink of Stella


Ha ha, what a title! I do like to get the names of things into my titles, and tra la! I did it!

Yes, the Awesomely Artistic stamp set (which frankly is awesome!) has met the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush. Granted it’s technically just the dragonfly that got winked, but you know, I like to play with words as much as I like to play with paper!

What do you think of the colour combination though? I have Mint Macaron as the background card blank and the flowers. Then Sahara Sand for the fern with Chocolate Chip ‘splats’. But the dragonfly is Pool Party.

I rather like that hint of blue!

I’m a bit addicted to the Wink of Stella though now. It’s like embossing for cheats! Okay so it’s not raised and it’s not as obviously glossy as heat embossing is, but it’s that little hint of something extra that lifts a card up a smidge more.

I know the card would have been fine without it, but I love the little addition too.

Hope you’re having a good week and that maybe you have a play too, whether with words or with paper.
