Kathleen's All Sparkly

Good Evening Splodgy Splodgers,

How are you this evening? Sorry we are late in posting, we have some exciting news that we might be moving house this week so we have been running around all day and wondering if we can pack the house in a day???

Today is the last day of out 'Sparkly and Glitter' Week and tomorrow is the start of our Christmas postings....sorry..hehe.

Kathleen is showcasing her beautiful card today using the 'Dressform Mask' and 'Floral Foundations Nesting Flowers'

"I used my SplodgeAway Mat as a water palette by applying ink onto it, spraying water and ‘rubbing’ card on to collect ink. I did this with red, orange and yellow distress inks. I then used gold and red cosmic shimmer powder and just brushed it over the background.
I embossed some white shimmer card using the 'Fancy Lattice' mask and cut to size.
I traced the outlines of the dresses using the Dressform Mask onto a sparkle shimmer card and cut these out, and used black distress ink through the mask to create the woman and the dummy and then cut these out. I layered the dresses over and added a bit of ribbon.
The flowers were made by embossing the loose flowers on the same white card, cutting out and colouring using the orange distress ink. some spots of glue and some bronze coloured glitter made the middles"Thank you Kathleen for a lovely piece of work. Check out Kathleen's Blog for more inspiration.

As soon as I have a spare slot this week I will be posting the showcases from the Create and Craft Show on Friday. Thank you to everybody who watched and bought. It was a very busy show and I think Tom did a great job.

Enjoy the rest of the evening,

Susan xx
