Thanks 27

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, June 6, 2015 @ 2:11 PM | , , , ,


Hello there! I hope you are enjoying the weekend! We had a few sun showers this morning but now we're back to enjoying sunny blue skies. I love to challenge myself to create outside my comfort zone so I did just that by taking on the June's Prima Product Pick challenge:
I created a greeting card featuring a variety of fun Prima products:
 To create this card, I started with a sheet of patterned paper from the Prima Cartographer collection:
I added texture and design using a Prima Damask stencil along with Prima Modeling paste. Once dry, I applied ColourArte Teal Zircon Silks Acrylic Glaze followed with random strokes of Prima Gesso:

 For a bit of shimmer and shine, I randomly adhered Prima Glass glitter to the background:


 Then embellished with a Prima die cut doily, die cut foliage and butterfly cut using paper from the Cartographer collection along with a variety of Prima blossoms:
For color inspiration, I joined along with the current Cardabilites sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
