I'll tell you a bit more about how I made it now too. I used the brick stencil (Stamposaurus) and the Wheat template (Kaisercraft) with Paper Artsy's grunge paste. When it was dry I stamped the sunflowers (Inkylicious) and embossed with embossing powder. Any EP will do. Next I painted over the whole thing with Fresco finish paints in Baltic Blue, Bora Bora (both opaque) and Eggplant (semi-opaque) using vertical and horizontal strokes and a flat brush. Once the paint was dry I rubbed Treasure Brass over the grunge paste and embossing to bring out the texture. Finally, I added the spellbinders die cut with a sentiment (Inkylicious) and a couple of blobs of liquid pearls.
Whilst I am here I will share another card I have made since Doncaster featuring my favourite colours - Teal Zeal and Grape Jelly Memento inks this time.
Here is a close up of the shimmer
Please excuse me if I don't manage to visit you until the weekend. I am due to move classrooms next Wednesday, and after 7 years with the same age group and 4 years in the same classroom, it is a bit like moving house, but just to next door and with 29 children around as you are trying to pack!!! I am looking forward to having some real fun next year with younger children and a much more creative classroom. I've been buying up pegs and lolly sticks by the shed load!!! Well, I'd better go. I have two leaving cards to make too, before Monday. We break up a week tomorrow, so not long to go.
Thanks for looking!
