It was my grandsons' birthday last week and I always struggle to know what put on his cards, as I do with most of the menfolk specially the young ones. Anyway I was needing to do something with fireworks a couple of weeks ago for another project and remembered I had this Dreamweaver stencil, and while I was using it, it occurred to me that it would make a good birthday card. I have recently renewed my interest in Imagination Crafts' Sparkle Medium, and while at the NEC show a few weeks ago I invested in some more colours and they are perfect for the job.I masked off each of the fireworks with tape and and uncovered one at a time so as to keep the colours separate, which turned out to be a bit easier than I expected. I set it aside to dry completely before trimming it and mounting onto red metallic card.I cut and folded a black 5" x 7" base card and stamped two swirls from a Chocolate Baroque set with Versamark and embossed them with WOW metallic brass glitter embossing powder.The greeting was stamped and embossed in the same way as the swirls and mounted to match the main panel, and I added a few red gems to finish off.
As I have used two tiny snippets left over from the fireworks piece for the greeting I am going to enter this at the Pixies Snippets Playground, a lovely fun and friendly challenge hosted by Di who is celebrating 100 weeks of hosting with some brilliant prizes so why not pop over and take a look.
