Flutterby Flowers - Margaret Brackenbury

Hello everyone, Margaret here again. Thank you to everyone who liked my Butterfly Spring card from Thursday. I'd like to show the other two cards I made, using the same techniques with different stencils...........

For the first card I applied Black Starlight Wax through the Modern Flowers stencil onto a piece of white card I painted with a wash of Japanese Jade Alchemy Wax.

I then applied Structure Paste through the Flutterby stencil and when that was dry I brushed on a little Silver Sparkle Medium to highlight the butterflies.

I kept the matting and layering simple, with black card and blue card brayered with
Silver Sparkle Medium..........


For the second card I applied Black Starlight Wax through the Alpine Poppy stencil onto a piece of card that I'd used to mop up excess paint. I applied Structure Paste through the 
Wheat panel stencil and when it was  dry I brushed Gold Shine Sparkle Medium on top.

I added a greeting and a black matting layer to finish..................

Tonight sees the launch of a new Imagination One Day Special on Hochanda. I hope you can join Sue at 8pm and then tomorrow at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and 7pm. All the products in the show can be found on the Imagination page on the Hochanda website. There are some great savings to be had & the ODS itself is a real bargain. 

Thanks for visiting the Imagination blog today, I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Butterfly Spring by Margaret Brackenbury

Hello folks, Margaret from the Design Team with a quick card for you all. I've used the Butterfly Spring stencil, with Black Starlight Wax and Structure Paste.......................

 I love making my own backgrounds, but for quickness Imagination's range of patterned card is perfect. Not only   are there lots of beautiful designs to choose from, but the card takes paint/wax/structure paste/etc. really well. 

I used the Butterfly Spring stencil and applied Black Starlight Wax onto two pieces of Wildflower patterned card with a piece of Cut and Use foam. Just a tip; I cut my pieces of foam into little fat fingers, I find they are really easy to handle, particularly in small areas.

 I then took the Butterfly Panel stencil, placed it on the side of my card and applied Structure Paste, which was dry in hardly any time at all which meant I could quickly finish my card..........

To finish the card, I trimmed my work to allow me to matt onto a piece of black card and another piece of patterned card. I added some extra flowers and a butterfly cut from the second piece of patterned card together with some Baby Pink Just Pearls and there it is...............

I hope you like my card, I had such fun making it that I made two more in the same way. I'll show you those another day. Thank you for visiting the Imagination Crafts' blog today.
