What's Up Friend - CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

Welcome back!  Today I'm sharing another card using the Bold Flower stencil along with the Somebunny stamp set and a few other things!  I'm painting with Glitter again on this one because I'm playing with this technique this month and I love it!

I started by using Distress Oxides and the Bold Flowers stencil to add the two largest flowers to my slimline sized card.  I knew I wanted to use a few colors on the petals so I stuck with the largest flower on the stencil and added one off the left edge at the top and off of the right edge at the bottom.  Then I took a paint tray and added a little bit of anemone colored Eco Sparkles glitter from Wow and some Glossy Accents and mixed them together.  You don't need a lot and you can always add just a little water to the mix if you need to thin it out a bit while you paint.

After I got done "painting" the glitter onto the purple areas, I rinsed out my paint tray and grabbed pink, orange and yellow glitters from my stash and repeated the process with each.... rinsing out in between so that cleanup would be easy... and it was!  Before I set that aside to dry I sprayed some Distress Oxide Spray in purple over the panel and then set it aside.

I cut the Friend word die from the Sweet Friends word die set once from purple card stock and twice more from white and stacked and glued them together.  Then I decided it would be fun to paint the sentiment with glitter too, so I did!  I wanted even more dimension for this part of my sentiment so I decided to add additional Glossy Accents over the top of it and set it aside to dry.

I colored in my bunny and balloon and then decided the balloon could use a little sparkle!  So I broke out the chunky orange glitter and liquid glass and proceeded to paint that too... I can't get enough!

I absolutely love the shimmer of the glitter and glossy accents painted on!  It's much lighter than just adding glitter to your project.  The Glossy Accents is light enough that it doesn't buckle your paper, and there is no glitter to fall off of your project either at your house or your recipients!  It's all securely in place with the Glossy Accents... smooth and sparkly!

I used one of the short sentiment pieces from Somebunny along with the Friend word die to build my sentiment.

I just added some jewels and sequins and I was done!

So thanks for joining me today!  I hope you enjoyed it!  Should you see something that you must have today, I have this for you:
