So to keep this short, (another opposite for me) I'll just high light a few points and show you a few photos, because I know you will be seeing plenty of long posts here in the future.
The black panel has been enameled using Tim Holtz Blossom Stencil, Golden crackle paste and Opalettes Tropicals. I added a little Perfect Pearl powder for the shimmer on the black card, which my phone refuses to pick up. But in real life , it's there on the black background and on the enameled blossoms.
My sentiment is actually from two different stamp sets, because 'birthday' would not stamp properly on the smaller Inkadinkadoo sentiment--I must have tried 10 times! I bought that set just for the Happy Birthday sentiment, so I'm not happy with them at the moment! 'Birthday' is Tim Holtz--he's always there for me!
The butterfly and flowers are from two different Tim Holtz dies-- Tattered Flower Garland and Butterfly Frenzy and the foliage is Impression Obsession.
I would like to enter my bright card into the following inspiring challenges:
Frilly and Funkie Opposites Attract Along with my "opposites" listed in my text, I think my panels are quite opposite!
Mixed Media Place April Challenge Creative Gym #18 Be Patient. The Best Things Happen Unexpectedly. I had to wait for the paste to dry to heat the enamels--a product I've not used like this before, so I didn't know what to expect (it's supposed to be used on metal, I think). Love the result!
