Love You by Tracy Jackson

Hello everyone! 

Today I'm sharing my very first post for Bee Arty.
Over the months I hope to share many more cards, tags and Art Journal pages

But for today I'm here to show you my "Love You" card.

I picked out Floral Delights 2 stamp set which is such a versatile set and a fussy cutters dream. Then, I wanted a background stamp so choose the Meridian stamp set.

After stamping out 3 different size flowers with Stazon on watercolour paper I was time to pick out my Shimmer Dust colours. As I have never used these before I decided to do each size flower a different shade of blue and wanted to see how they reacted adding the Green Paris colour as a highlight.

While my flowers were drying I used a dry paint brush to tap dry Shimmer Dusts in Peacock, Colbalt and Paris onto some water colour paper. I then sprayed some water onto card and to activate colours and used heat gun to dry. 

Once I was happy I stamped a strip of circles from the Meridian stamp set and used Paris and Peacock shimmer dusts to darken some of the circles to make them stand out.

I also wet a little bit of Midnight shimmer dust so I could go around the edges of the card.

And finally after fussy cutting all the flowers, placing them on the card and cutting out the words "love You" from Mantras Untangle paper, I have a card!

My verdict on the Shimmer Dusts as a first time user.... Love them!
They blend lovely together and a lot goes a long way. I'm looking forward to using these on more projects.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
