Quotes & Lyrics - Gift
For the 20th Challenge in the Craft Barn's Quotes & Lyrics Challenge the words are Gift & Destiny. This was a quote week for me and luckily I remembered this quote stamp I have that includes the word gift. I stamped the text and then masked the words Yesterday, Tomorrow and Today however with all the spraying and squirting the colours ran under the masks so in the end I had to re-stamp the words and add them again. The stencil by Balzer Designs was sprayed with 2 shades of Glimmer Mist (aren't these a pain to use ? They just keep blocking up) and outlined with a Pigma micron pen. The remaining background uses my current favourite - Brusho powder paints. I only have blue, yellow, green, black and white so you may start to get fed up of seeing these colours but I love the effects they create. I sprinkled yellow, blue & green and spritzed with water and gold shimmer spray. When dry I dabbed seedless preserves DI over the page and added a layered flower to the stencilled circle with a candi dot centre.
I do try and visit all of your fab entries but I don't do Facebook or Google+ so whilst I admire that work I am unable to comment on it.
