Thanks

Hi crafters!  I am back playing with the Opal Polishes!  I just love the Mother of Pearl look they give!  I started with a piece of black card and used the Pink Thistle, Blue Lavender, Blue Parakeet and Green Lemons Opal Polishes randomly across the card.  I set it aside and allowed it to dry thoroughly.  Next I cut a piece of coconut white card and added the Hexagonal Border cut in white to the top and bottom edge of the card.  I used the Double Stitched Ovals to make a multi layered white frame.  I added mounting foam and seated it on the opal polish background, the trimmed away the excess card from the frame.  I seated it in the centre of the two white borders.  Next I cut two of the small butterflies from the Petite Butterflies set out of card that had pink and yellow opal polish on it.  I glued them to the top corner of the frame.  I used the Exquisite Poppy die cut in white to create a flower and edges the petals with Lavender Blue opal polish.  I seated it on the side of the frame and cut Lace Edged Leaves as accents.  I cut a Pierced Flag die in white and added the Noble thanks cut in a left over piece of the opal polish background and glued it to the flag.  White on white mats and layers completed the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, I see what you mean about the opal polishes, they do give a nice pop of colour without being too brash. Love the composition of the card with the oval element in the centre. Thanks for sharing.
