Citrus Snowdrops by Bev Hilton


Hello everyone. I'm here again for my weekly spot on the blog. Today I'm sharing another card I made a few weeks back using the fabulous Dinky Snowdrop stencil, and of course a mixture of others too. This card only used one stamp which is the wording.







Here's what I used...


White Linen Card Stock
That's Crafty! Dinky Stencils - Snowdrops (TC091), Honeycomb (TC031), Harlequin (TC019), Dragonfly (TC051)
Distress Inks - Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron, Mustard Seed, Seedless Preserve


Here's what I did...


I began with inking through the 8x8 Big Floral stencil with Twisted Citron and Mustard Seed Distress inks. I then removed the stencil and gently brushed over with same colours to soften the white. Using Mowed Lawn Distress ink I softly blended through the Dinky Snowdrop stencil to the left and again to the right slightly lower than the main image was to be placed. I then placed the stencil into the middle and embossed the image with DecoArt Modeling Paste. I did the same with the Dragonfly stencil to place the four dragonflies.

I heated the snowdrops with a heat tool to get a slightly bubbled effect to give more texture. I set this aside to dry and began work on the frame which I cut from a stitched die by Sue Wilson. I used the DecoArt paste again through the Harlequin and Dragonfly stencils. Once dry I blended over with Mowed Lawn and Mustard Seed Distress inks. I then decided to add some circles with the Word Series stencil in Seedless Preserve.

Back to main image. I replaced the Snowdrop stencil over texture paste and painted through with gold pearl texture paste on the flower heads. I then used gilding wax on the stems in emerald. I did the same with the dragonflies using gilding wax in brass. I decided to add some more texture to the card with the Honeycomb stencil and sparkle medium in each corner of the card. Once dry I stamped the wording in black Versafine ink.

I mounted the frame to my card, then mounted onto green card stock before mounting onto my white card base.


All for now and see you again soon. 

Much love,
