Crafty Secrets Challenge
For this week's Crafty Secrets Challenge, Lori Lynn asked us to use metal on our cards somewhere. On this one, I used some craft wire, which was one of Lori's suggestions. I have lots of it, and I rarely use it. It was popular for a while there, so I bought it. I never really knew what to do with it, though! This is one of CS's small sets, called Believe. I think it's the prettiest angel stamp I've ever seen.
For the Prima flower, I sponged it with Brilliance Mediterranean Blue, which is intense, like Brilliant Blue. Then I sprayed Caspian Sea Shimmer Mist on it, and sprinkled it with Blue Boy Art Glitter. To set the glitter, I gave it a few shots of hairspray. This glitter isn't going anywhere! Ultra hold, baby!!
For the center, I used a pop up glue dot and pressed beads into it. I've been trying to use my beads lately, and these are really gorgeous.
