PaperArtsy Challenge June 2014 with inspiration from Keren Baker #2

Whoohoo I'm here again!

Mega quick for this one and it was mega quick to make too (apart from a short drying time for the Grunge Paste) but still taking my inspiration from Keren's post HERE on the PaperArtsy blog I've made a second card!

I'm not a big fan of glitter especially the really bright colourful stuff but don't like using it for the common reason of the blasted stuff getting everywhere.  However, I do quite like the look you get with Crystal Glamour Dust which is quite fine........it still gets everywhere though, lol!  Anyway, here's my second card of the evening (er, it's now Sunday morning but I've been crafting while OH has been winding himself up watching England lose, lol).






You can definitely see the sparkle I added to the Grunge Paste because as it was after midnight when I took the photo I had to use flash ;D!  I used a different Lin Brown for PaperArtsy stencil to the one Keren used but the butterfly is from the same stamp set Keren used and was stamped with embossing ink onto heat resistant acetate, embossed with bright white WOW embossing powder and cut out.  I would have used StazOn as Keren did on her glass but my white StazOn has dried out.  The sentiment is an Inkylicious one.

Right, I'm off to bed or I'll never wake up to go to my Son's for the day!  Night Night all!

Hugs

This is lovely Lesley. Glamour Dust does give a lovely subtle sparkle, yours looks smashing in the grunge paste - what a brilliant effect and less messy too. Love the white embossing on acetate effect, you have used Keren's inspiration to great effect in your design which is very stylish. Elaine xxx

This is stunning Lesley. I love the glitter on the light card, very stylish. I may use the same idea on a Wedding card for my niece.
