Fantastic Plastic.....

Here's another card for today...................
Update...Spotlight Artist with this card..
Thank you very much, absolutely delighted and thrilled x
After masking the background I blended with several colours of distress inks.
I popped on a stencil and dabbed water through it, 
to give the water effect of the white flowers behind.
I stamped a few flower stems with black archival ink.
I had fun with stamping flowers onto shrink plastic.
I experimented lots!
I had hoped to achieve a clear effect with the flowers but my shrink plastic was translucent 
and not clear! I had thought translucent was clear...it appears not!
I stamped the sentiment onto black card and heat embossed with gold glitter.
I finished off with gold glitter glue around the edge of the blended background.
Had fun with this one.

  7. This card is absolutely fabulous, it mast have taken ages to make with all the different techniques that youve used. First of all, I love the colours of ink that you've used and they are blended together beautifully. The stenciled flowers really add interest to the background and give it an extra dimension. I've never used shrink plastic myself but it looks like you've really mastered the use of it and it works so well with the stamps here. I also really like the way that you have the black flower over the edge of the image and it really draws your eye in. The gold glitter looks lovely around the edge of the card and compliments all other elements. I think you can probably tell by now that I really like this card :) x
