You Are So Kind

Hello crafters!  I grabbed a piece of my caught in crystal stash for this card.  I started with a piece of acetate and added Blue Aquamarine, Pure Amethyst and Lime Peridot Crystal Tints.  Spread them lightly with my finger and then sprinkled on some Teal Haze and Silver Holographic Glitter, then added a scrunched up piece of white tissue and set it aside to dry.  Once dry, I trimmed it to size then added a multi-layered frame cut from the Double Stitched Squares.  For the focal element, I cut the Eliza die in white and left it open in the back.  I cut the smaller die in the set and used it as a base for my sentiment.  I used the sentiment from the Gardening Frame and cut it in lilac card.  I added three small flowers around it.  The card was completed with white and lilac mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. Everything about today's inspiration is absolutely gorgeous I can only imagine that in 'real life' the effect of the background must be stunning, and the bright white Eliza just highlights the full beauty to start the week. Hope Creativation is going really well for you. Enjoy your day, any sight of the Red Wolf moon eclipse in Arizona ? Xx
