Hi and welcome to a post to let you know that over at STAMPlorations Shery has organised a mini blog hop to celebrate Thanksgiving.
Living in England I don't celebrate Thanksgiving, but that doesn't matter, we all need to be thankful on occasions and I usually make a raft of Thank You cards for my daughter to give to her TA's at school. This is one card that will find it's way into the stash!
While I was tiding up the other day, yes don't faint, I came across the very thing that sparked off this card. It was a silver 'thanks' that a friend cut for me a long time ago using her Cricut, one day when we got together for a bit of crafting and gossip!
To start I took a white base card and stamped 3 butterflies from my Trendy Butterflies set then embossed with white EP. I then sprinkled some turquoise Brusho over the area around the butterflies then spritzed it with water. Although it doesn't show in the picture there is a shimmer to the background made by adding a small amount of Inka Gold wax in platinum and steel blue to a spray bottle then adding water and shaking to dissolve the wax or rather to allow it to become suspended in the liquid. I don't think the mix was 100% right as it did blob when I sprayed but I quite liked the effect. The Cricut thanks was then glued over the panel below the butterflies. I was thinking of the layout at CAS(e) this Sketch but just realised I switched the sketch around!
