Splodge Away DT Debut!!

Good morning folks, this week I'm making my debut as part of the SplodgeAway Design Team, I can't tell you how much fun I've had playing with some of the most gorgeous masks and of course my trusty Splodge Mat. If you've got a few minutes pop over to the SplodgeAway blog and have a look at all the fab project created by my new teamies!

This card was the result of a 'happy accident' as they say lol. I'd decided to use the beautiful 'Fancier Lattice' mask for the glittered lace technique but it all went horribly wrong! I started with some white card and stuck it to some double sided adhesive sheet, applied my mask and sprinkled on lots of rock candy glitter. All seemed to be going to plan until I removed the mask and instead of a nice bright pink glitter I tipped on a load more rock candy - result a nice white glittery piece of card lol.

Not to be daunted I replaced the mask and grabbed my panpastels and applied Magenta and Magenta Extra dark with a duster brush and voila!! The background was made with one of the Splodge Away Feminine Border masks and more PanPastels. I've edged the layers with some treasure gold and added a big white bow and a gesso'd butterfly (from The Ribbon Girl) and lots of paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
ABC Challenge: make it sparkle
Allsorts: add some sparkle
Cute Card Thursday: come fly with me
Hybrid Chick: flowers

Well I'd better get organised and go to work, have a good day folks
