My final piece for Crafts To Challenge You this month and something completely different!
By now you will remember that the theme is Texture and the twist is to add something shiny or glittery. There is still time to enter your project - just click the link HERE or pop over and browse the wonderful entries.
I used the Tim Holtz Pocket die which I then decorated to make an extra special gift wallet. I have used various Spellbinders and Marianne dies layered over a doily, but I am most excited about these roses which have had a complete makeover!
This is how they started out:
I used a Marvy Le Plume Watercolour Pen (Wine) to colour the edges of the flower - I didn't bother too much just kept brushing the large nib over and around the leaves.
Then I spritzed it with water and after it had dried a little spritzed some more with Smooch Spritz Vanilla Shimmer (this close up looks more pink than it actually is).
Finally I added some Crystal Stickles around the edges. The Stickles were still a little wet when I took the photograph - they dry to a lovely light sparkle.
It is getting a bit addictive!
But I love the subtle effects.
My white flower stash is definately diminishing - but I think now I really will have to buy some more!
Thanks for looking and I hope this inspires you to start giving your white flowers a make over.
