Spread Your Wings Birthday card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Spread Your Wings".

Oh yes, I'm still under the spell of Infusions. For the background I used Crackle Paste, it's a bit older and was somewhat dry, but a little bit of water and mix it well does wonders. And luckily it hasn't any effect on the crackle. I used it with the Simon Says Stamp Large Dots stencil. After everything was dry I applied Opal Magic Blue Gold paint with the Mixed Media Brush, but I didn't cover everything and didn't apply it evenly.


With different colors Infusions and a mixture of Mod Podge and water, I gave the background more color. After everything was dry I applied some more Infusions and made other layers with sprayer water on it. The Magic Opal paint gives such a cool effect, even if you go over it with Mod Pogde and Infusions.


Unfortunately I had troubles with my camera again... No fun! But luckily only the last few minutes are missing, and in that time I applied the Droplets with Tacky Glue and stamped the sentiment and adhered it to my card.
