I made my background with some white stamping card and a Moroccan Tile mask, which I sprayed Prima Color Blooms through in Iris and Glistening Waves. I deliberately let it overspill instead of masking off the edges so that I would have an artificial mat to save me trying to colour match it. By the way, I discovered that Prima Color Bloom is awfully sticky when it lands on your table, lamp and long distance glasses!!!! *Makes mental note, must protect my work surface more thoroughly in future*
My lovely image is from the Polkadoodles Eden CD. It’s one of the fabulous pre-coloured images, which I was very grateful for as I am having severe back issues and I was in a lot of pain so didn’t want to sit colouring. I printed her and then edged her with the opposite colours to the background so that it would stand out a little better. Both the edge of the background and the image were then glittered with glamour dust. I love glamour dust because it’s intensely sparkly but it allows the colours beneath to shine through.
The gorgeous diecut above the image is from Sue Wilson’s Configurations Dies, and the flower is a Bosskut die, which I cut from some oversprayed card that I trimmed off and then glittered. The pearl and gem centre was in my stash, as was the birthday sentiment.
