Quite a long post today, to explain what I did to these cards! These two are my favourite cards using Prima Forever green collection, mainly because I made such a mess experimenting! From the top. card 1. I used retired stampin up stamps for the background text, green foilage and sentiment and used a Prima 3d die cut and fussy cut butterfly as a focus. a scrap of ribbon and lace to finish. Card 2.I used white cardstock and sprayed a couple of colours of fireworks onto it and then used a stencil and light texture paste. You have to wait a little while to let the paste dry, then to continue.. a touch of Wink of Stella on some of the dried texture paste for a bit of a gleam, random sequins, a prima forever green die cut and some punched greenery. In the close up you can see the glitter of the wink of stella brush. I enjoyed this technique  and will try it on some special christmas cards when I get half a minute to myself! til tomorrow…..
