Sending Love and Blog Candy too!

For the first card I wanted a whimsical, sparkly card to go with this pretty angel image from American Art Stamp. The main image was colored with Copics. The angel wings were painted with Pearl-Ex and future floor wax.


The flourish at the bottom is from a package of grunge board. I inked it with Aqua Mist Palette ink. Then colored it with glue pen then sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I added a half a scalloped oval punch with a sentiment at the bottom and dots of stickles along the edges. I have a hard time letting such a wide open space stay uncluttered!!




I made the sheet of card candy for the May Gallery on Embellish It and I'm going to give it away as blog candy this week! It's a 4.25 x 5.5 sheet of Basic Grey Two Scoops paper that is covered with popped up flowers made with the same paper and stamps from Fancy Pants Pollen Dust set. I also added lots of glitter, rhinestones, buttons and dimensionals to make these fun embellishments to just put on a card or project. The flowers each have a dimensional on the back so you just need to lift them off the paper and they are ready to use.


To enter the giveaway just leave a comment on this post - and don't forget to leave your email or blog address so I can get ahold of you if you win! I'll pick a random will over the weekend.


Thanks for looking!
