For this card I have used:
I applied a thin coat of gesso to my card (I used a thin piece of chipboard) and dried and then added the gesso a bit thicker with a pallets knife and played with it until I achieved the desired texture. I let this dry for a while on its own and then helped it along a bit with my heat gun. Once dried I sprayed with my chosen colours of dylusions and dried. Using the stencil I sprayed water which lightens the stencilled area I then left this to dry. Once dried I stamped and heat embossed the life sentiment then I stamped the leaves and maidenhair stamps in black ink. I applied a small amount of glaze from my stash to the outer edges of the shape. To give the leaves some dimension I added glossy accents and some glitter and then just glossy accents to the maiden hair
Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I am going to make sure I try something a little different each week now. It certainly helps to keep crafting interesting. I have tried lots of things in the past that hasn't always been successful but I don't let it put me off trying again.
