'Fragile glittering' (by Miranda)

Hello there,

Today a card I've made using the new CB stamp sheet 'the Rosetree'. The stamp I've used is a beautiful fragrant flower and I like it very much to work with. I've  made a background using oil pastel crayons and a blending solution. Also used a lot of glittering which I like always! I am really like a magpie........Also used my indispensable white gel pen this time for the centre of the flowers. I've also used the same background behind the image and embossed that with a crafts too folder. A lovely lime coloured ribbon for the finishing touch. And I've also added a sentiment from the sheet 'Artistic affirmations' 
On the picture below you can see the shimmer better, always difficult to catch on the camera.

Till next time,

  5. Beautiful card Miranda!

  6. Fabulous card Miranda and I love the colours the oil pastel backgrounds are fun to do. Suexxx

  7. Your background is a beauty & really sets off the flowers & I love your term of fragile glittering. I love your use of the white gel pen for accenting too & the deep tones/colours of your flowers which are in keeping with the background.

  9. Beautiful card and fabulous background, love the soft coloring and the bubble effect in the edges, is it a stamp?

  10. This is such a pretty card. All its parts speak to each other so it "reads" well as a whole.
    I'm very interested in the oil pastels and blending solution. Can you tell me about the solution? Is it specialised or a solvent that might be on the desk already?
    Many thanks,

  11. This is just lovely - great colours and design. Well done yet again. ikki x
