For my Sparkle creation I used Sheena’s new Paint Fusion technique. I cut a card with my Go Kreate Dies in the largest size, approx 6”. And stamped out the sweet peas and then used the fusion painting technique to colour them in! As you can see I am still very much getting to grips with this technique and my leaves are not the most attractive on the planet, but hey nature is marvellous, and I bet if you look really hard you could find some leaves that look like that, just not on a Sweet Pea!
For the sparkle element I have edged my card with an embossing pen and used Sheena wow powders in a sparkly pink, which I also used for the words and for the Sweet Peas’ tendrils.
There is also sparkle in my thread that it is hanging from as I plaited together three strands of different sparkly threads to create a thicker one.
The butterflies are Nestie dies and cut out of two different glitter papers.
When I had finished painting I cut another shape the same size and glued the two together and it made a nice sturdy wall hanging.
