Its 3rd time lucky with this card as I've 2 weeks running I finished my card too late for the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge but I made it this week. This week the theme is Carnival colours so I've used some bright primary coloured acrylic paints as a starting point and splodged them randomly on some card before spraying with coordinating glimmer mists. While it was wet I used stuck bubble wrap to an acrylic block and lighly coated it with metallic gold paint and stamped it around the edges. Once it was dry I overstamped with a big flourishy corner stamp from Elusive Images using black versamark and distressed the edges with the same ink. I then rubbed it lightly with tissue so the black faded into the background.
The flowers are made with tissue coloured with the left over paint from making the background, cut into circles, scrinched and layered up. The Venetian mask is a fab digi stamp from Crafty Ann's which is coloured with promarkers and triple embossed.
The main image is Midnight Waiting by ching chou kuik coloured with promarkers. I used crackle accents on the wings and then once it was dry rubbed in some red stickles. The background is painted with glimmer mists. The image is matted on red and black card. To finish off i added some black velvet ribbon and stamped a sentiment from Crafters Companion on the background.
