Sparkly Botanical 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 "Add a Little Sparkle".

As my starting point I used the Botanical 3D Texture Fade (Thanks, Marzena!). With a blending tool and foam, I applied Opal Magic Green-Gold Paint all over. With the blending foam, it's possible to apply an equal coat of paint. This tip I saw in Mixed Media Jen's video.


My inspiration for this card was a vintage curtain / wallpaper. The Botanical 3D Texture Fade is reminiscent of that. With College Medium mixed with water and with different colors Infusions I gave the flowers and the leaves a first layer of color. Then some extra Infusions sprayed with water to give more interest and color variation.




To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.

So pretty Sandra! Love the texture with the 3d plate. I just saw it yesterday at the store. I knew I should have picked it up! :) Great coloring technique.

This looks like a quick card, right? And I didn't imagine that such a messy way of coloring could look so pretty! The result is really totally interesting. Love the dark colors, too. Hugs, Marzena
