Purple Birthday

Today's project is one of the cards I made recently using up some backgrounds, toppers and elements I'd created a while back whilst playing with inks, paints, stamps and stencils.

I loved this panel when I'd finished it but wasn't exactly sure how I wanted to turn it into a card.  I added it over a slightly larger layer of black card then tied around some twine and attached a flower embellishment.  I decided not to add a sentiment to the front so that the card would work for many different occasions.

Materials and tools used :

Distress Inks - Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac, Blue Print Sketch
Rebecca Baer 'Secret Garden' stencil
Penny Black Slapstick Cling stamp 'Full Bloom'
Black Archival ink
Faber Castell Glass Bead Glitter Gel applied through a Stampers Anonymous stencil
Crafters Companion Spray and Shine to seal the DIs
Black cardstock
Lilac cotton twine
SU! 'Flower Shop' stamp set and matching punch for the flower embellishment

Here's a close up shot of the GBGG

I hope you've enjoyed seeing today's project, thanks so much for visiting my little piece of Blogland, I do appreciate each and everyone of you, particularly those of you who take the time to leave me a comment.  I'm always thrilled to see I have comments on my posts to read and publish. 

Hope to see you here again soon when I share more of my makes.

Hugs, Wynneth x

I can see why you loved that panel Wynneth, it's a real corker! I often find that I make panels I am pleased with and then don't know what to do with them, so they just sit in my drawer in an ever expanding pile! I love what you did with yours! Have a great day my friend! Hazel xx
