I'm back for Day 4 of the Pattern Play Class
and today we were asked to alter patterned paper again, this time using glitter, glossy accents and enamels etc to provide interest and detail.
I took strips of patterned paper and added glitter to the centre of the little flowers and used the Whimsy Balloon Die set to cut some balloons, which I altered with glitter and glossy accents. I wanted to try enamelling the centre of some of the flowers but liquid enamel is still on my wish list, so I experimented with some domes of liquid applique which I glittered before heating.
and I was really pleased with the dimension. Its so good to find a use for this that doesn't include snow!
I tried drawing in some balloon strings but I couldn't get them to look right and then I had inspiration and pulled out my Memory Box Prim Poppy Die from Dies to Die For and used the stems with the flowers cut off. The bow is from Papertrey Ink Bells and Boughs and
the very cute tiny little bows on the balloons are bow ties from the PTI Man and Wife die set. I had so much fun putting this card together and I really like how it turned out. I'm going to enter this into the Dies to Die for challenge which this time has a spring theme and my happy balloons certainly remind me spring is coming, if not actual Easter Eggs! I am also going to enter it into the Simon Says Stamps challenge which is a spring/Easter theme.
Thanks for looking in.
