Ooolala! Gorgeous Genevieve Cards!


Hi there BoBunnies :)

This week we've been all gaga over the new Genevieve Collection, and today I have a couple of cards to show you using this beautiful colour combo of blue, yellow and white.  It reminds of Summer - which is still a few months away here - and daffodils!

To create the base of my card Ive matched up the yellow in the patterned paper to Buttercup Double Dot - it matches the collection perfectly!

For my background I first dry brushed gesso over the base paper and then applied Gold Pearlescents, again dry brushed on. I then used the new Stickable Stencil Starling with texture paste.  Once dry, I then applied splatters of Gold and Frost Glimmer Sprays.  When that was dry I reapplied my stencil over my original application of texture paste and re-painted over the design with white gesso so that it stood out.  Once it was all dry I randomly stamped all over.

To decorate my chipboard I gessoed both pieces first.  The top piece I left white, inking the edges with the Blueberry Ink Pad and stamping with Licorice Ink.  The bottom piece I kept simple, covering it with Gold Pearlescents.

A bit of fussy cutting, and a cluster at the bottom of my centre piece finished it all off.

With my second card I created the base in exactly the same way as the first card.  I used the tag from the sticker sheet, popped some jumbled up cotton in behind, with some seam binding ribbon I coloured with Frost Glimmer Spray.
