Dahlia.

Good evening,

Well it has been a much better day here today I'm pleased to say, the sun even shone for a short period but still quite chilly.   I spent some time in my crafty space this afternoon, playing with my new Lavinia stamps, which I adore, they are so beautifully designed, as you well know by now lol! my love of anything to do with the fairy realm.    I will share these cards with you  at a later, I need to photograph them first lol!

Well onto tonight's card which was made for Sue & Harvey from Imagination Crafts.   This was made for their One Day Special shows on the Hochanda T.V. Channel last Friday.   I have used the 'Dahlia'  and 'Leaf Vein' stencils and  Starlight paints,

    
Cut a square of brown card, approximately a quarter of an inch smaller than the  7"x7" ivory base card.   Lay the 'Leaf Vein' stencil onto it and dab the Emerald and Rich Gold Starlight paints through the design, using a piece of cut 'n' dry foam.   Put this to one side for the moment.

   
Take some spare brown card and lay the large Dahlia stencil onto it and dab the Orange Oxidised Starlight paint through the design, adding a little Rich Gold paint.



Repeat this three  more times.   Cut out, leaving a small edge of brown around the edges of the petals.   3D, using silicone glue and fix to  the centre of the  brown card, with the stencilled leaf background on it.   Glue this to the centre of the base card.

   
Using the Spellbinder's tag,  die cut one tag in ivory and another from brown card.    Cut out the oval from the brown card and glue to the ivory tag.

    
Stamp 'Love You' using the Rich Gold Starlight paint onto the brown oval.   (Just a little tip, lightly spray your stamp with water  before dabbing the Starlight paint onto it, using a piece of cut 'n' dry foam.)   Glue the tag to the bottom centre of the base card, just below the Dahlia.

Well that's all from me for tonight.   Take care of yourselves and I will be back again quite soon.

                                                                Love and rainbows,

                                                           Crafty Hugs   Jennifer xx,
