Tuesday Tutorial - Starlights and Kraft Card by Margaret Brackenbury

Good morning, Kirsten here with a Tuesday Tutorial from one of our Design Team members; Margaret Brackenbury. It's also Margaret's very first post on the Imagination Crafts' blog & we're delighted to have her. Over to you, Margaret.....................

Hello everyone, I'm Margaret and I'm thrilled to be an Imagination Crafts' Design Team member. I love using their products and probably like you, I am in love with Starlights and Sparkle Medium! Here is my first project; a card made with some of the gorgeous NEW Starlights colours - they're all available on the Imagination Crafts' website now - and kraft card............

Starlights and kraft card!!! Yes, they do mix for a really different look!! Here's my step by step...........

Step 1:

I chose the Flower and Bug stencil and Misty Green, Pink Sorbet and Canary Yellow Starlights - LOVE the Canary Yellow, it's so vibrant!!! I began by applying the green for the leaves, then on to Pink Sorbet for the outer part of the flower petals and Canary Yellow for the centres.

  Starlights dry very quickly, so once that was done, I went back to first colour and continued to blend, swapping colours until I was happy. I did this twice, one for the main card and one to cut out the leaves and flowers.................

Step 2:

Using the same colours I created a background layer................

Step 3:

I cut out the flowers and leaves from the second piece of card.................

Step 4:

I edged the main card and the background layer with Inca Gold Alchemy Wax, layered up the cut out flowers and leaves, offsetting the leaves slightly. I mounted the layers on to a 7x7 card blank, added Gold Gilt Detail Sparkle to the edges & centres of the flowers and the card was finished.................

Thank you very much for reading my first blog post for Imagination Crafts, I hope you like my card.
