Blue Daisy Swirl

Good evening everyone. Phew what a weekend it has been, talk about rain, not been too bad today but Friday and Saturday was awful here in Birmingham.  Torrential rain, even a bit of thunder on Friday.  Clearly we need to send out a search party for the sun, it seems to have gone missing!

I have just had two lovely crafting days and my post today is one of the results.  I ordered some of those new cosmic shimmer lustre embossing powders that Julia Watts demonstrated on Thursday.  Ordered them on the same day, image my shock when they were delivered on Friday.  This is create and craft we are talking about, never one to deliver to my neck of the woods quickly, good job I was sitting down when hubby brought them in to me. 

They are just as beautiful as the last set I ordered.  So, I began with a C5 pearlescent card, matted another piece of pearlescent card on having pricked it around the edges in Sue Wilson style.  I then matted a piece of blue co'ordinations card on.

My next mat is a piece of pearlescent card which I have stamped with a swirl in stormy sky distress ink, I then took another leave stamp which I stamped in victorian velvet  distress ink. I then ran it through an embossing folder to give it some texture.

I stamped my image, daisy swirl from creative expressions in cosmic shimmer lapis saphire lustre embossing powder, die cut using oval spelli and matted that onto some more co'ordinations which I ran through an embossing folder and sanded it.

Finally I die cut some swirls using a sizzix die in both blue co'ordinations and white pearlescent to shadow before placing my roses on which I made using the creative expressions flower die.  I also sprayed the roses with crafters pink sparkle spray.

Well, that's me for today.  Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you chose to make.  Do take care.  See you soon.
