Starlight Anniversary

Hi Folks!

How are we all?.....enjoying a bit of sunshine I hope! certainly here in West Yorkshire it's beaming down today.
Talking of beaming...I'm beaming today as last week was a mix of bad and good news.....the good news being that I was voted 'A Perfect Pinkie' in 'In the Pinks' 100th Birthday challenge with my Grandaughter card (last post). As a result I received a lovely surprise pink package through the letterbox last nice was that!! THANK YOU ladies at 'In the Pink' for choosing me.

Well it may have been a couple of weeks since I posted (time flying again) but I haven't been idle on the crafting front...little and often (because of neck) in the craft room so things do seem to take a while to completion.
Anyway I got out my Starlight paints last week and had a play at painting some simple backgrounds.......boy are these paints lush......full of Mica. I then found an old wooden stamp lying forgotten in a drawer and stamped over the dried pieces and embossed in WOW platinum powder......and then went on to make this.......

and then on cream....and a better photo

just look at that shimmer from those paints!

I used:-
Imagination Starlight paints in Menthol,Mint and Platinum
Wow embossing powders in Platinum and Gold
Sentiment is Clearly Besotted stamped in gold and silver encore
Stamp and sequins...from stash.
The card I used, apart from the base card were all snippets from my yippee I have used up some of the mountain,  so I am skipping (in my mind only I hasten to add) to the playground while the sun is shining to catch up with my mates.......the ironing can's going to rain tomorrow!

Enjoy the rest of your week my friends and take care wherever you are and whatever you are doing.
Thank you for popping in. I really do appreciate you doing so and if you have left me a comment...thank you...I so love reading them all.

The painted backgrounds, the embossing: glitzy, glimmery delights, both! Hope your neck speeds up in its recovery.

  9. Hi, I looked at this the other day on my small phone screen but couldn't really see it. Lol. Then I forgot to come back and have a look on a proper screen with glasses! Now I can see, it looks great, love the shimmer. The colours are very pretty together. We've been lucky and escaped the rain today but I think it's coming tomorrow.

  10. Beautiful cards.
