Today I have another design team contribution for you; my Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies one.
Todays card I used the gorgeous iridescent medium through a stencil I got a long time ago (no idea of brand sorry!) But haven’t used for a while.
I used a palette knife but wasn’t exactly careful so it did seep through the stencil in a few places but as the iridescent finish is so pretty I don’t care!
I had cut the panel to be 15mm smaller than my card blank as I wanted it to have a good border around plus this meant it fit nicely in the stencil area.
I had to let that dry for a while so I didn’t smear it or lose the dimension so I started creating the top cluster I wanted for the card.
I stamped and embossed in silver both the larger leaf image from Splendid Thoughts and the Happy from Biggest Wish. The die cut leaf I then added some colour to using a few colours of pinks and purples and the blending brushes.
I had a die cut circle on the desk already so I decided to ink that up too with the purples.
I stamped the birthday in Perfect Plum and then fussy cut that. Then I grabbed some die cuts from scraps in pinks and purples for adding to the cluster.
I felt it needed something else though to ground it and so die cut a Wreath from white using a spellbinders die. I die cut it twice to give it some more dimension.
Then I clustered them together and adhered them to some foam so they would sit nicely above the texture of the background.
Before sticking them down, and once the texture medium was dry I splattered some purple ink as I felt it needed some splatters to finish it off!
I added the top panel onto more foam to then add it to the card blank and then added the gems I found in the stash.

Such a pretty card, Catherine! I just love the iridescent medium you used – might have to find it for myself! And it looks like we have very similar taste in stamps since I used this one as well. Looking forward to seeing what you make for the November challenge!
Lovely.. so many texture and interests.. so beautiful..
