#1 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Dandelion Wishes, Shimmer Paint and Highland Heather Sponging
Pootles’ Super Amazing Enormous Giveaway and Competition 2018 Details HERE
Well it’s all going on in today’s card isn’t it!
Let me tell you where it started and where it ended up… This is definitely one of those ‘experimental – let’s see what happens’ kind of cards!
I started off stamping the Dandelion Wishes seed heads onto a piece of whisper white and my original plan had simply been to sponge Highland Heather around the edges, but I pondered how it might look if I smooshed the ink further all over and then pondered more to see what it would like if I made darker splooshes in various places.
I love the effect and was very happy with it.
Then I decided to take it a step further and add shimmer paint. Now I will point out that this was my first use of it and trust me, less is definitely more…. but I was actually pretty happy with the finished result.
However, nigh on impossible to photograph without either losing all the shine or having it glare. So I’m sharing both!!!!
Will I do it again?
In a different colour?
Definitely… perhaps a paler colour.
I do like it though and it’s one that definitely looks better in real life than on a computer screen…
