Kick Up Your Heels – Silver

P1070067

 

Hello again

I thought this great die from Catchy Crafts (Australia)it made the perfect focus for my Distress watercolour piece.  It is cut from a piece of glitter card.

This time I blended some Distress Inks onto the piece and then spritzed it with Perfect Pearls water to get a great shimmer as well as a lovely washed effect. IRL it looks much more purple and shiny! (Unfortunately, in the photo it looks blue!  😦 )

The silver heat embossed sentiment is from Hero Arts – High Heels stamp set and the card is finished off with some rhinestones coloured purple with a Copic marker.

The background piece uses Cutplorations Wonky Rectangle Dies that is layered on the card front using craft foam.

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. oooooooooooooooooh! I love that glittery Cinderella like shoe Helen. What a statement it makes in front of your purple background. It is such a hard colour to get photographed right. I see Therese beat me to the Cinderella shoe! I love it.
