Victorian Spray

WOODWARE - VICTORIAN SPRAY CARD FRONT WITH ENVY
All I can say is it's a mixed bag!!  It started when I ran my hand across the stamen of the flower, while it was wet with glitter glue.  Yuk!!!  I almost always paint with Twinks and since most everyone else uses Copic, Shinhan, etc., I haven't listed the H2O colors.  If you ever want them, feel free to email me.  I also started out with something totally different in my head and here is how I got the above:

IMAGE:
  1. Stamped image on white cardstock twice with Golden Glitz ink and used heat gun to dry ink; painted all of one with Twinks. Painted all but the flower on the second.  Fussy cut around the outside of the completely painted image.  Fussy cut around one corner, the leaves and the berries of the second image.
CARD FRONT:
  1. Used largest die cut, from Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics - B, as a stencil for a piece of dark purple card stock.
  2. Used an old 4.25"X5.5" Lavender striped piece of DP with the largest die cut; daubed the smallest cirles corner of Circle Explosion stencil on upper left and lower right of die cut and mounted on the dark purple piece.
  3. Mounted the image in the middle of that.
  4. Embellished with Stickles orange and yellow glitter glue - rubbed my hand across it before it was dry. :-(
  5. Applied Stickles Golden Rod to spots and berries on image; applied here and there on the Circle Explosion area.  Brushed just a touch of Wink of Stella Clear along the darkest purple lines of the flower.  The ribbon for bow was a gift for a purchase somewhere.  I secured the heart bead with GA to diamante stick pin.
INSIDE CARD

 INSIDE CARD and ENVY:
  1. Cut two pieces of dark purple cardstock .75"X5.5"; taped to each side.  
  2. Used the IO Circles Cut Out on a piece of the striped paper ( NOTE - There are no borders on the circle die.  You can place it anywhere on any piece of paper, (i.e. in the middle if you want) and you just get holes.  Saved the negative holes.  Cut it in two pieces with 2 rows on one and one row on the other.  Taped to purple as shown.
  3. Taped to right and left as shown.
  4. Mounted fussy cut leaves and added Golden Rod glitter glue as shown.
  5. Applied the "leftover dots" from the Circles Cut Out here and there using Glossy Accents applied with needle-nosed bottle and a QuickStik for the dots, embellished with Golden Rod glitter glue.
  6. Used GA and needle-nosed bottle to apply corner of image to envy and berries with leaves; embellished with glitter glues.
That's it for now.  Almost have a Christmas card done!!  Thanks for stopping by to look and share!

It's beautiful, Shirley. I love the flower and that pretty ribbon and stick pin.

Believe me, I have stuck my hand in, usually Stickles, on my card before it dried. Can really mess up a card. Getting your hand in the glitter glue doesn't seem to have harmed your card. It's awesome!

One of my favourite things about your cards is that you use Twinks. I think they are a beautiful medium and I don't use them enough. Sticking hand in glitter glue, been there, done that. Sadly, it seems to be a habit of mine!
This card is lovely, the colours are stunning and I love the gold embossing, it's perfect!

Amazing card, Shirley! So many details outside and inside. Love how you use Twinks something I never used.

Shirley, I love it!!! So very pretty and love all those dots in the corners. I know it just shines with the Stickles! I've done the same thing before and just generally had a mess after rubbing across the Stickles!

Donna Maligno said...

Wonderful card, Shirl. Twinks are so lovely and is a great reminder to me to dig them out again. Love the stencilling in the corners -- a really great touch!

Karen Amidon said...

You coloring is always beautiful and those leaves are gorgeous Shirley! Love the fussy cutting and the stenciled gold dots. Your inside and envy are just as pretty!

Lee-Anne said...

Your coloring and use of "bling" is always amazing, Shirley! The little stick pin and bow are just lovely!

Julia Aston said...

What pretty colors and gold sparkle on this Shirley! (sorry I made you buy stitched mat dies - but you will LOVE them - I can't seem to make a card without them lately!)

Beth said...

GF I think we have all stuck our fingers and hands in glitter glue and wished we had kept our hands clear.....but.....let me say doesn't look as though it hurt this beauty...wonderful card.

Donna B. said...

I love the image and that you used purple for the flower because it's my favorite color!! Another stunning creation!!

Deepti said...

Oh my, such beautiful soft coloring, and so love all your berries, such a great touch with it!!
I too have put my hands or fingers into my stickles, I try to keep that for the very end but still manage it.

Bonnie said...

This is such a pretty flower with the gorgeous leaves! Beautiful bow!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Such a pretty way to celebrate Spring! And those yellow dots above and below the blossom remind me of pollen. tee hee!

MaryH said...

Magnificent sparkling gold card! Beautiful save, and I think we've all done it with stickles, glossy accents or whatever. Again, I'm awed by all the fussy cuts, but it surely paid off on this wonderful card. The Delicata ink is my favorite gold ink pad, even more than the Brillance. TFS & Hugs

Diane said...

Diane said...

Wow Shirley what gorgeous flower and design.

This is a fabulous card.

Do you know - it has taken me a few posts to realise that you're NOT the jealous type and that ENVY means envelope on your blog!!!! LOL!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

So pretty! I'm a twinks person myself too. I really love their shimmer and the colour palette is incredible.
