Dream Different Dreams
This is a sketch by Laura over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I learned about 2S4Y from Amy, who pretty much knows everything that's cool to know. The only reason I know anything even remotely cool is because of her!
This is one of those cards that just would not work the way I wanted it to, even though I love the final result! Robyn, the owner of Artistic Outpost, sent me Chinese Proverbs for Christmas, and I tried every single image and couldn't make them work on this card, so all that remains from that set is the sentiment. The set is beautiful, and I'll use all the images I tried here, just not on this card!
The base of this card is SU! Brushed Gold-so beautiful!! Then I added some 7Gypsies paper and stickers. The butterfly is Heidi Swapp, and I finished it up with some very thin gold cord from my stash, Gold Stickles, and Antique Brass Glimmer Mist. I use ABrass GM like it's going out of style! I wait until I'm completely finished with my card then give it three or four quick shots. NOTE!!! If I am working with a painted image, especially people or fairies, I cover them before I spray, or I spray before I mount that image. The reason is that I have gotten unflattering spots on faces, because as much as I love GM, you can't always predict the splatter pattern. What looks fabulous on some things looks like a skin condition on others!!
