Best Wishes.....

 Two cards today as we again head towards the end of the month..

First card for the CAS Mix Up challenge ....
  • The stencil is from the cheap craft shop and I used white gesso
  • Then spritzed the card with pink spray made with drawing ink and water and when that was dry I mixed some gold Magical Micas with water and flicked on some extra sparkle
  • Die cut the sentiment (Sizzix - Celebration Words, Script) from gold and pinkish purple card and glued these offset to give a shadow
  • Stamped and gold embossed butterfly (Happy Little Stampers - Especially for You set) and watercoloured with Distress Inks, then attached with foam tape.

Second card for The Flower Challenge.....
  • Inked part of the Penny Black Garden Gems stamp with Distress Inks, lightly spritzed with water and stamped onto white card
  • Stamped and gold embossed sentiment (Kaisercraft - Birthday Wishes set) 
  • Used a rounded corner punch to curve the card panel
  • Attached to pink card to create a frame 
  • To finish I added some white iridescent sequins for the sparkle... love how they catch the pink from the card

Thanks for stopping by my blog --  have a Wonderful Day,   Cheers Robyn


  1. Beautiful cards but the first one has to be my favourite. The stencil and gesso have added lovely interest and dimension to your gorgeous splattery background and the sparkle is just the perfect finishing touch. Thanks so much for joining us at CAS Mix Up this month xx

  2. Two beauties! The first card is so unique and very pretty! Thanks so much for joining us at CAS Mix Up:)

  3. Two beautiful cards Robyn! LOVE your gesso stenciling with the pretty spray over top. Your butterfly is beautiful! Gorgoeus, sparkly, watercoloured flower. Love this technique! Thanks for sharing your first card with us at CAS Mix Up! xx

  4. This butterfly looks like a piece of jewelry, Robyn! So pretty on the gesso and spray background! Love the beautiful pink flower with sequins to match! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  5. So pleased Robyn that you shared your 1st card with us at CAS Mix Up Stencil Gesso'd Challenge. Your Gesso and sprayed background turned out beautifully. TFS your beautiful floral 2nd card too. Two beauties, my friend. Love and Hugs..Nancy

  6. Robyn, I don't think I've ever seen Distress Inks stamped so perfectly - you must have a secret! I love your gorgeous pink bloom, and yes, those perfectly sparkling sequins! Thanks so very much for playing along at The Flower Challenge! [I love your sweet butterfly, too!]
