Blooming Lovely!

Good Morning All and welcome to Tuesday's Creative Expressions project.

This month, I've been sent some new masks to play with and here's a card I've made using the mask called "Bloom".

So let's get started...........

Stick a piece double sided adhesive onto some white card and peel off the top layer.
Use an anti-static bag on the mask to help with the release and place on top of the adhesive sheet.
Using a small spoon, add each colour of Cosmic Shimmer Polished Silk Glitters at a time.
I've used Fire Red, Penny Copper, Sahara Gold and Sea Green.

Remove the mask.  Add Cosmic Shimmer Ebony Ice Glitter Jewels to the rest of the double sided adhesive.

Cut out using Spellbinders Grand Circle Dies.
Draw around the outer edge of the die on white card, cut out and matt and layer.

Emboss a piece of white card with the Creative Expressions A4 Art Deco Fanfare Folder.

Matt and layer onto a piece of Foundations Black Card.

Cut a length of Black Crushed Satin Ribbon and heat with a heat gun to crinkle it.  Attach to the card.

Cut a Scalloped Circle in Black Card from Spellbinders Grand Dies.  Matt and layer the glittered topper.
Attach to the card with 3d foam pads.

Cut another length of the Black Ribbon.  Heat again with the heat tool.
Tie a bow and attach to the card with a glue dot.
Add a Black Dazzler to the centre of the bow to finish.

And there's the finished card!

It's very different from my usual style....no ink for a start!
I even managed to stay clean making this one!!  I did look as though I was headed out to a disco with all the glitter I managed to get on myself!

Well, that's it for today.  I'll be back tomorrow with a project for Creative Studios so until then, have a happy, crafty time and many thanks for visiting.
