For this card, I wanted to make my word float across a fantasy sky, so what better than the Glitter Brush pens from Leonie. I also wanted to have things hanging from the word, the stamps and stencils are from the collection Leonie launched on Hochanda on October 13th. Please do check as the shows might just still be available Via 'Rewind' on their website.

This time I wanted to fill my word 'Memories', so I secured the stencil to my card with Stick n Spray from Crafters Companion and stamped with the Foliage stamp from the collection.

I removed the stencil and replaced it with the mask. I used the heart stamp to hang from the letters using another of the stamps to connect them. I then added some of the flying dragonflies.

Next I added some of the balloons, I love these and they are such a useful stamp to have and great for so many occasions.

Leaving the mask in place, I masked the stamped elements with Pebeo Drawing gum. For the background I used the Glitter Brush Pens, to blend the sky from very dark blue to a deep purple, I also wanted a lighter area in the centre. The colours I used from top to bottom were Cobalt and Arctic from the 'Frosty Christmas' set. Then Lilac, Lavender and Iris from the 'Wrapped Up' set. When this was dry I removed the drawing gum and coloured the stamps with my alcohol markers.

To finish, I layered it onto Centura Pearl 'hint of silver', then onto deep blue Centura Pearl, both by Crafters Companion. I used the Collall Tacky Glue to secure.

Thank you for visiting today, I still have a lot to share so I hope you will come by again. For now Take care and Happy
